With the coming of warmer weather and businesses beginning to open up on the island the regular Friday night music jam at the Community Store has been discontinued until next winter.
Barbara Adams, a frequent attender at the music nights, sent me this photo yesterday. It gives a good sense of the fun and enjoyment we have on Ocracoke, even (especially??) in the off-season.

If you missed our winter gatherings, look around the village for music at restaurants, and later in the season at Deepwater Theater, on your next visit to the island.
