The OcraFolk School Sampler Class spent Wednesday sailing aboard the schooner Windfall II. Every year Captain Rob instructs the students about Ocracoke's seafaring traditions, including information about navigation, sea chanteys, maritime terminology, and knot tying.
This was my annual opportunity to make another Turk's Head Bracelet. The bracelet on the left is an older version (I cut it off immediately after taking the photo). The bracelet on the right will last for many months, maybe even until next year.
