Outer Banks Message Board

I discovered the following message that was posted on the Outer Banks Message Board recently:

Congratulations Amy!

Oh, and about the bugs: we've been extremely lucky this least so far. Hardly any mosquitoes...but we always provide bug spray for anyone who wants to use it.

This month's Ocracoke Newsletter, Looking for the Wahabs of Ocracoke, was written by Dr. James Zogby, president of the Arab American Institute. You can read the article here:

    The Ghost Walk Tour is on my "Ocracoke to-do list", as well as traveling to Portsmouth Island. Maybe, one of these days....Congratulations on the nice comments. Looks like Dad and Daughter make a great team!

    Here's another link about the Ghost Tour. It sounds like "Amy's Dad" does a fine job also:

    The Ghost Walk is our favorite and my daughter just loves Amy! The stories are so good, I don't think my daughter will ever let us stay at the Island Inn. :)

    now the ghost in a ghost tour is just stories about dead people right??? I mean there are no ghosts ... no one jumping out from behind the bushes... no orchestrated noises at convenientn
    part of the stories regaling the visitors or are there? Does a local historical society have a section Good stuff for a scary ghost walk or does one have to "research" the material or make it up

  6. There is no jumping out from behind the bushes...though a cat jumped out of a tree one time and scared the daylights out of everyone. All of the stories are well researched, mainly tales passed down from one generation to the next, with lots of local history woven in.
