Several days ago I had dinner with a group of family and friends. Discussion turned to naps, a popular mid-day ritual on Ocracoke. A show of hands revealed that everyone at the table but one, as well as our waitress, had enjoyed a nap that day. And these were not all old codgers. Ages ranged from mid-thirties to early sixties.

We're not always lucky enough to take a nap, but when we have a day off, or finish our lunch early, or can otherwise sneak it in, we often opt for a short nap.

Just one more reason to celebrate life on Ocracoke Island.

    It must be nice to be able to take a nap all the time.... Some of us only have one day off every other week.


    An Islander that never stops.

    I dream of coming for the spectacular beach.

    I yearn to come for the freshly baked bread.

    And now I find out you have *naps*, too ? ! ?

    Buh-bye, Indiana! Ocracoke is calling!
