Several people have asked about the dredge (with all of its pipeline) that has been in the harbor lately. A few of our readers have seen it on a web-cam; others have seen it while visiting the island. Capt. Rob Temple has written a great article about the dredge for the Ocracoke Current. You can read his article, and see photos of the dredge, here: http://www.ocracokecurrent.com/42512.

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is the story of midwifery on Ocracoke. You can read it here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news082112.htm

    besides the poor quality images that come off the ocracoke harbour inn camera what other webcam shows off the beautiful assets of silverlake? there was once a camera I think located on top of the said mentioned inn for while but is there another running full time for public viewing??

  3. Perhaps one of our readers knows about Ocracoke webcams. I never watch webcams, and do not know what is available.

    NC Mainlander is thrilled about reading the story regarding the dredge. Thanks, Philip and Captain Rob!

    Re: Web-cams....I've enjoyed countless minutes viewing the Ocracoke Harbor Inn's Silver Lake, however, the Teach's Hole web-cam is, at least for the moment, not working. Also, Captain's Landing had an excellent web-cam which showed a different angle. I especially enjoyed this web-cam when the ferry would arrive. Unfortunately, I don't believe it is operating. However, the Ocracoke Airport web-cam seems to be working. Lately, I have not been able to see the lighthouse in the distance w/ one of the airport web-cams, as I could last year.

    So, I guess this is "good news, bad news". Maybe another blogger knows of more web-cams to share.
