Wassail Party

Dozens of islanders gathered last night at the Preservation Society Museum for the annual wassail party, caroling, and the lighting of the community Christmas tree.

Lachlan and I walked down to the museum at 5 pm (David followed later). Several other children were there so Lachlan spent most of his time in the cedar tree in the yard, playing with his friends, and I was able to sample the hot cider & cookies, and chat with neighbors without interruption.

I met two couples who have recently moved to the island, Phil & Jennifer, and Tony & Janey. They all seemed positively delighted to be now calling Ocracoke home. Welcome to the island!

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter discusses place names on Ocracoke. You can read it here:

A neighbor asked me a couple of days ago if we still sell goose neck back scratchers. I assured her we do, and told her she won't find a better back scratcher anywhere! They are curved just right, and are comfortable to grip. Take a look by clicking on the image below.
