Several days ago Lou Ann took a few photos at or near sunset. Below are three -- one taken at the beach, looking toward "South Point," the second one taken from "Jack's Dock" where the Ocracoke Working Watermen's Exhibit is located, and the last one taken from the NPS docks, shortly before the lighthouse light came on.
In the winter, when the sun sets farther south, the western side of the village becomes a starkly silhouetted scene dominated by the lighthouse. It is quite impressive.
