Okay, this is going to seem a little morbid, but these pics are from my birthday, 1/21. I turned 34, wow! And our little island was covered with snow so we went for a walk. There are cemeteries all over the place, we walked through this one and took some pics of interesting statues and headstones. The one above looks like the grave of a pirate. I don't doubt it, Ocracoke is quite famous for its pirate history. I thought these cherubs were precious. I'm a yard-art kind of girl. I think I get it from my Grandma Ella.
This is Charlie at my morning coffee b-day bash. He loves to open presents! Brian always makes my birthdays feel special. Snow, a novelty to me. Sailboats and snow just don't go together in my mind. The ferry that takes us off the island. A shrimp boat, isn't she beautiful. One of the many unpaved roads on the island. Kayak rental, anyone? Ah, the Ocracoke lighthouse. I guess these are the ones who didn't fly South. I'm not looking too happy, but I warmed up to the cold temps eventually, though I am a tropical nut at heart.
