Holiday Approaching

Christmas decorations are going up in the village. Illuminated angels and snowflakes adorn power poles, garlands are draped across fences, electric candles glow in windows, and colored lights sparkle on eaves and porch posts. As the days and weeks pass there will be more holiday displays, although you'd hardly know December is peeking around the corner. I woke up this morning to a spring-like temperature in the high sixties. The sky is ashen gray, and a light breeze is rustling the trees, but it is warm. T-shirts are the order of the day it seems. Yesterday was considerably cooler, but even then bare feet tracks were in evidence at the beach. It's good to be alive!

Our latest Newsletter is about the old Howard cemetery on British Cemetery Road. You can read the stories here.

    Because most of us don't get to Ocracoke this time of year, how about some Christmas pictures ?
