It's beginning to feel a lot like winter!

Friday started out sunny and warm, but a cold front moved in during the afternoon led by quite blustery winds. The folks who started the day out in t-shirts were caught shivering by mid-afternoon and had to hurry home to put on long sleeves.
It's also starting to get quiet on the island. The visitors here for the Thanksgiving holiday are slowly packing up their cars and heading toward the ferry. The restaurants are taking the cue and one by one they are closing up for the season. However, if you are planning a winter trip to Ocracoke, there are always a couple of restaurants that stay open throughout the year. You can't escape good food on this island!

    If my memory serves me correctly, doesn't Jason's, Howard's Pub and Pony Island Restaurant all stay open during the winter season?

  4. Each year the restaurants that stay open switch around some. I will try to find out (and post soon) which ones will be open and what their schedules will be.
