Happy Easter!

Easter morning breaks sunny and clear...but much cooler than yesterday. It's even quite breezy.

Last night's fund raising concert for the Ocrafolk Festival was a big success...and lots of fun. By the end of the performance children were dancing in the aisles. Molasses Creek, of course, was there, along with Baby D and Free Mustache, Coyote, April Trueblood, Was Lassiter, Rob Temple, Sundae Horn, Jamie Tunnel, Noah Paley, Donald Davis, and yours truly.

Homemade desserts and soft drinks were available for sale, along with CDs and books by the performers. It was a great way to kick off the 2009 season.

Keep June 5-7 free on your calendar. That's the Festival weekend, a wonderful time to spend on Ocracoke, enjoying music, stories, auction, pot luck dinner, family, & friends.

In our latest Ocracoke Newsletter I share information about our many local cemeteries, with examples of some of our more interesting epitaphs. You can read it here.
