Ida Lawrence

Not much going on here on the island today. Hardly a "stranger" to be seen. It's been cool (in the mid-50's) but sunny. Stars are glorious again tonight.

However, on this date in 1902 the schooner "Ida Lawrence" wrecked on Ocracoke's beach. All hands aboard were rescued. At least one house (eponymously named) was built from lumber salvaged from the Ida Lawrence.
