Last week I accompanied a group of folks for a sunset cruise on the Skipjack Wilma Lee. On the way back to Silver Lake, with the sun setting behind the boat, I had a pleasant conversation with Crystal & Ty, a young couple from Wilmington, NC, who had never been to the island before. Ty made this panoramic image of the Wilma Lee with his smart phone, and was gracious enough to share it with me.

month's Ocracoke Newsletter tells the delightful story of the 19th
century "Stovepipe Hat" wreck. It has been told for years in books
& magazines, but it probably never happened. You can read the
story (and my research) here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news072115.htm.
