An Ocracoke Morning

Several times on this blog I have extolled the beauty of an Ocracoke Island outdoor shower. Yesterday morning the sun was shining brightly, the temperature was in the mid-60s, and birds were chirping merrily as I took my shower.

What a great way to start my day!

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is the story of our island Post Office. You can read it here:

    The OI post office story is very interesting. The role of drivers as contract workers continues to this day. The other noteworthy practice of repurposing buildings, moving buildings and rebuilding structures speaks to the recycle repurpose reuse mantra of the go green movement. OI was doing it. perhaps educating the current generation of visitors that it is a way of life. for some second nature not a bandwagon to jump on for fun. but any effort the Environment benefits if only those lessons of "going green " learned by OI visitors were brought back to their hometowns then the spirit of OI would continue .

    our house has indoor plumbing which we have had all my life. but then i also have a waterhose that could serve as a outdoor shower. i even have trees and birds - and a nosy neighbor.

    The question is: For the safety of your family and other visitors, do you have adequate hand railings, non-slip components on the floor, an emergency call phone, and a first aid kit? ...Just being funny, this was in honor of "Debbie Downer" from a few days ago...

    1. I did just power wash the shower floor. Thanks for looking after my safety!
