Music is good for the soul...good for calming the spirit...good for transcending the mundane.

Thursday night Molasses Creek offered the community an impromptu evening performance at Deepwater Theater. Unfortunately, the word never really got out, and only a handful of folks showed up. But that didn't stop Gary, Dave, Marcy, and Lou from giving a stellar performance! And the audience, as sparse as we were, was wildly enthusiastic.

Music is returning to our lives. Visitors are beginning to return to Ocracoke. And energy and vitality are returning as well. Come on out to the island. Fall is a wonderful time of the year to enjoy our beautiful island.

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is a history of the marine hospital on Portsmouth Island. You can read it here:

    Glad to hear the island is alive and well. Sounds like a fun evening. Wish I had been there!

    Thursday night? I just heard about it Saturday morning. What we've got here is a failure to communicate.

    Are the visitors coming back, Philip? Do you expect Ocracoke to be as busy and crowded as usual this fall?

    Yes, visitors are returning to Ocracoke...but there is no way it will be as busy as usual this fall. Hatteras Inlet ferries are not operating as I write, and the majority of our mid-week business typically comes from the north.
