Last weekend I joined several other islanders in Swan Quarter for the annual "Music Across the Sound" performance. Some folks use the 2 1/2 hour ferry ride to read, nap, play cards, or catch up on work.
Fiddler Dave, Sundae, and Marcy used some of their time to rehearse for the performance.
If you are ever on the ferry with local musicians, don't be timid and walk away. Stay for a free concert. You'll be glad you did.
Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter documents the day telephones came to the island. The article includes
images of Ocracoke's first telephone directory which lists a total of
63 subscribers. You can read the Newsletter here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news022114.htm.
