My son Stefen and his wife Snee have three children. I wrote a little about their son Eakin yesterday. Eakin has an older sister, Zoe, and a younger sister, Eliza. They all had a wonderful two weeks on the island, and I'm sad they had to leave.
They enjoyed a ghost and history walk their first week on Ocracoke. On Friday night Zoe and her friend Pia had a great time lying in wait along spooky Howard Street for Lou Ann's ghost walk. They were dressed up in long, flowing white dresses, and they made just a brief appearance from behind the bushes. You could hear the screams from both ends of Howard Street!
Zoe & Pia also joined Lou Ann last week for belly dancing lessons. They especially enjoyed their jingly-jangly wraps festooned with silver "coins."
Nine year old Eliza is a budding artist who shared many of her drawings with us. She spent a lot of time with Lachlan in the tree house, swinging on the rope in his yard, and swimming in the ocean & at Springer's Point. She even jumped overboard from the boat and climbed on the "knee board" so her daddy could give her a thrilling ride behind the boat.
We had such a fine time...and created wonderful, lasting memories. It was just too short!
This month's Ocracoke Newsletter is the story of the 1913 wreck of the 6-masted schooner, George W. Wells. You can read it here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news072110.htm.
