Welcome to our new Ocracoke Journal, where we hope to keep you informed of day-to-day events on our beautiful island. The last few days have been gorgeous, with temperatures in the low 70's. Dolphins are plentiful in the surf, and there's even an occasional scotch bonnet to be found washed up on the beach.
If you haven't been to the island in several months you may not know that the Assembly of God church building was moved this winter. It now sits across the street from the Post Office, and will be converted to a rental cottage (named "Almost Heaven" we understand). Construction was begun on a new Assembly of God sanctuary on Lighthouse Road several days ago.
Various businesses are beginning to open up again. Village Craftsmen is open 10 am to 5 pm Monday - Saturday. Stop by and say hello on your next visit to the island!
