Presidents Day

Village Craftsmen has been open for three days now, so we all agree that it's time for a day off. Although it has been cold and windy this morning, the breeze is calming down some and the bright sun is beckoning me outside. Lachlan has been asking to make another foray down to Springer's Point, so we'll bundle up and go exploring. Maybe we'll find another Native American pipe bowl along the shoreline like I did thirty years ago. If not, we'll still have a great adventure.

This month's Ocracoke Newsletter tells about island customs relating to death & dying. You can read the newsletter here.

    I visit Ocracoke regularly, and have tried often to find Springer point, but somehow can not seem to find it.

    We have hiked everywhere from the beach access to the boat landing. Can you give directions?

  2. Springer's Point is on the southwest side of the village, and is accessible from the "Loop Road" -- really an extension of Lighthouse Road. There is no parking anywhere near the path leading to the Point, though there is a sign there for direction. Please walk or ride bikes (you can park your bikes at the head of the trail; bikes are not allowed on the trail itself).
