Thnksgiving Day on Ocracoke was sunny and beautiful. It was all the more wonderful because all of my family was here, including my three grandchildren from western NC, Zoe, Eakin, & Eliza, and my island grandchild, Lachlan. We ate heartily, took walks and bike rides, drew pictures, read books, built an Ocracoke birdtrap, and played games.
Overnight the weather turned cold. It's only 48 degrees today, but it is sunny and clear. Tonight we'll celebrate Zoe's 9th birthday and then go to the benefit concert for the Ocrafolk festival. Molasses Creek will perform, and so will Donald Davis, Martin Garrish, Roy Parsons, Marcie & Lou, Rob & Sundae, and Aaron Caswell. Oh yeah, and I'll tell about Ocracoke's first automobile accident (there were only two motor vehicles on the island at the time!).
