Not long ago, as I was biking around the village, I noticed this lonely structure sitting in a now-empty lot. Although island residents and many long-time visitors to Ocracoke will know what this is, I suspect there are some of our readers who will be puzzled.
If you do not recognize this object, you can learn what it is, and see photos of many more, here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news102110.htm.
For those of you who can identify this structure, I wonder if you know where it is located. If you think you know, please leave your answer in a comment.
