There are few places more magical than Howard Street under a full moon. These last few days have been simply beautiful. The picket fences, the marble tombstones, the one hundred year old houses...and especially the majestic live oaks...all are bathed in moonlight and cast soft shadows along the sandy lane. There is beauty here even at midnight.

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is the story of the Hurricane House and the Hurricane Boards. You can read it here:


  1. I love walking Howard street during the day, but have never walked it at night. I can only imagine the live oaks, the cemetries, and the sandy street by moonlight. I have several pictures I haave taken of the trees.

    Howard Street is fantastic any time of day!

    Though, Rachel won't walk down it at night. LOL
