Exploring Ocracoke Island

We took the ferry over to Ocracoke last Saturday. It was one of those days where for both the outbound an inbound trip, we pulled right up and onto the ferry with no wait.

Southernmost tip Of Hatteras Island

Approaching Ocracoke

Once you get onto the island, you have basically a few miles of coastline before you get to the village.

And its basically mile after mile of spectacular coastline, with grand dunes being the only thing that separates the highway from the white sand and warm blue water.

As we explored, I could envision pirates in the 18th century setting up a camp in lee of these dunes.

Ah, to be a kid again and play pirates!

sorry about that diversion. I just love that scene. I wanna be a pirate.

A refreshing swim in the ocean always rejuvinates me

Here is a slide show from our visit to Ocracoke Village

Back on Hatteras, and the east facing beaches where still being hammered by pretty heavy surf
