Ocracoke is getting ready for another pirate invasion, so chart your course for the island. Blackbeard's Pirate Jamboree will be held October 30 - November 1.
This year the festivities will coincide with Halloween. In addition to Trick-or-Treat events for kids, the festival will include pirate re-enactors, buccaneer encampments, naval battles, sword fights, minstrel songs and sea chanteys, good food, and grog.

month's Ocracoke Newsletter tells the delightful story of the 19th
century "Stovepipe Hat" wreck. It has been told for years in books
& magazines, but it probably never happened. You can read the
story (and my research) here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news072115.htm.
