The Winter Beach

If you live on Ocracoke...or visit here in the off-season, you know that spending time on the beach in autumn, winter, or early spring is a much different experience from being on the beach in the summer.(Just take a look at yesterday's post for a first-hand report.)

This photo, taken near the "Lifeguard Beach" midday in late October, is revealing. As you can see, there are no beach umbrellas, no blankets or chairs, no Frisbees being thrown, and no people for miles.

Of course, it can be cold and blustery, and few venture into the water after October, but the tranquility and quiet are soothing and therapeutic.

We suggest you place your orders as early as possible. Unfortunately, because of the closing of the Herbert C. Bonner bridge we are unable to offer expedited shipping this season.

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is a 1921 letter written by a former slave, Harrison Williams, to Ocracoke native, Martha Ann Howard Wahab. You can read it here:
