Porch Talks

On Thursday Lou Ann & I met with a dozen and a half folks at the Preservation Museum. I shared the history of our traditional island square dance -- and we even danced two dances in the yard. David Tweedie and Lou Castro were there to provide some good old-time tunes for us.

On Friday John Golden entertained more folks with Outer Banks folk songs. This coming week Chester Lynn talks about figs and fig recipes, and a park employee shares information about our unique Outer Banks ponies.

Every week in the season the museum hosts these informative porch talks. Be sure to check their schedule on your next visit to the island. I'm guessing you will learn some interesting and entertaining history no matter which talk you have the opportunity to join.

You can read our latest newsletter here. It's about Ocracoke Islanders and "tokens of death."
