What a beautiful day to wake up to...It's crisp and clear, just like a fall day at the beach should be. The fact that today will be spent visiting with good friends while sharing tasty homemade recipes makes me appreciate the day even more. Perhaps after filling up on dinner we will have to go take a stroll on the beach. There is always that tantalizing hope of finding a scotch bonnet that's washed up on the shore.
Thanksgiving also always means good music on Ocracoke. On Friday the Ocrafolk Festival Fundraising Concert will be held at the Community Center. There is always a fine group of musicians, storytellers and fresh, homemade baked goods. This year Fiddler Dave is once again making his famous Fig Cake to be raffled off during the concert. The winner is always envied by the rest of the crowd.
Here's wishing you a good Thanksgiving wherever you are and however you enjoy celebrating it!
