Another cycle has commenced. The Vernal Equinox, Passover, Spring Full Moon, Easter. Each one is a celebration of rebirth. Daffodils and tulips are poking their heads through the earth. Trees are budding. Days are lengthening. The air and water are gradually getting warmer. And Ocracoke village is awakening to another season of fishing, gardening, boating, and welcoming visitors.

Ocracoke's annual Easter sunrise service was held on the beach this morning.
No doubt about it -- another season is upon us. Hope to see you soon on the beach, or strolling down Howard Street.
