In December I published a post about the annual Oyster Roast sponsored by the Ocracoke Working Watermen's Association. Unfortunately I missed this event. However, the day after I returned home I had the good fortune to join friends for oysters, beer, dip, chocolate cake, and congenial conversation.

Other than reuniting with Amy, David, & Lachlan, there is hardly a more fitting "Welcome Home" than a get-together with fresh steamed North Carolina oysters and close friends.

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is about islanders who worked on the water, and lost their lives at sea. You can read the Newsletter here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news012116.htm.

    I follow a blog called manger and the food photography really elevates/stars on the screen. She lives in France near the ocean in an isolated area, now runs an inn teaches cooking lessons yaydayada
    Her floor is a red and white tile floor which jumps out to me as does your table cloth -- this image so reminded me of Mimi Thorinsson DD

    It reminds me of a Italian restaurant.
