Yesterday I wrote about all of the activities that are available to us on Ocracoke. Please don't get me wrong -- that is only when we want to be engaged with activity. Take last night for another example. I walked through the village with a half dozen folks, sharing ghost and history stories. What a beautiful and quiet night it was. The half moon hung in the sky, casting soft shadows on sandy lanes. Every now and then a bicyclist passed by. A couple of dogs barked as we strolled down a footpath. Silhouettes of massive live oaks framed our walk down Howard Street. Several participants commented on how serene and calm island life can be.
Many of our readers know what I am talking about. Few other places provide a similar feeling.
Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is the story of Project Nutmeg, and how Ocracoke almost became a site for testing nuclear weapons. You can read it here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news042112.htm.
