If you saw yesterday's post explaining why the public is not permitted to climb the Ocracoke Lighthouse, you know that my brief time off from posting on this blog is over.

In addition to spending quality time with my family over the holidays, I had ample time to enjoy our beach; visit with friends; jump into the ocean on New Years Day; savor steamed, fresh oysters; and spend a day on Portsmouth Island. Below are a few photos.

Here we are, ready to take the "Polar" Plunge on January 1 (photo by Chrystal Canterbury from the Ocracoke Current; that's half of me on the extreme right!):

And here I am, refreshed and ready to meet the New Year:

This is the time of the year for delicious, salty Pamlico Sound oysters.

And, it's the best time of year to visit Portsmouth Island Village. No mosquitoes! I will publish more photos of Portsmouth tomorrow.

It is good to be back posting on our Ocracoke Journal in the New Year!

Our current Ocracoke Newsletter is the story of the murder of Willis Williams. You can read it here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news112114.htm.
