Folk School

This evening the 2012 OcraFolk School begins with registration and check-in between 4 & 5 pm. At 6:30 the entire school will gather at the Pony Island Restaurant for dinner (I wonder how many of the students will have read Monday's post []).

Tomorrow morning, the whole school will participate in an orientation aboard Ocracoke Alive's historic skipjack Wilma Lee. Classes begin in the afternoon. This year's classes are Island Cooking, Wood Carving, Music Appreciation, Wellness, and Ocracoke Sampler.

Additional group activities -- music jams, bonfires, a shrimp boil, bird walk, nature walk, and stargazing -- will round out the week. As usual, we are anticipating a great week for everyone.
