Ocracoke Island, NC and it's lighthouse is a very special place for me. It's where my grandmother spent most of her teenage years while her dad was the light keeper. It's a small island only accessible by boat or ferry and home to a large art community. David and I love to take long day trips down there in the off season. We leave early in the AM to make the hour long drive down Hatteras Island through the villages of Rodanthe, Salvo and Waves, to the end of the island. There we join other vehicles in line for the 20 min ferry ride to Ocracoke. Once there, we have a late brunch at The Flying Melon or The Back Porch and then take a stroll through the village and stopping at our favorite galleries. We always end the day with a visit to the lighthouse where I find myself imagining what it was like for my grandmother to live there. The island has really grown in popularity and ever since Southern Living magazine listed Ocracoke as one of the top beaches in the South, it's been very crowded in the summer months. We now only go during off seasons which is really when it's at it's most beautiful. TFL

I'm currently rediscovering some of the tutorials and classes I have and had fun on this page using a technique from PKnox's Even More Mad Digital Skills class. So much fun!
