We are off for our long awaited and yearned for trip to Ocracoke Island, North Carolina. The outer most barrier island, Ocracoke is only accessible by boat or air. The National Park service manages most of the island with on small village at the far end. Only about 600 people call Ocracoke home. There are no big box stores, fast food, or even a movie theater! All shops & hotels are owned by the locals and most people walk or bike around the village. The beach, fishing, crabbing, and just relaxing are the order of the day. When you leave the ferry, you are truly "below the stress line" I'm off !!
