What is there to do here on Ocracoke?

The other day Philip and I were sitting on the rocking chairs at the Community Store. It is a great place to hang out in the middle of the afternoon, or really anytime. Locals stop by to chat as they are buying milk or broccoli or tobacco, and tourists stop in as well to buy drinks or snacks or tobacco!

As we will sitting there just watching the harbor and talking, a couple came and sat down on the bench. We both nodded hi and made small conversation with them, as we always do.

Finally, the woman said, "What is there to do around here?"

Philip and I both looked at each other and kind of shrugged our shoulders.

She replied, "Oh, I guess you're dong it."

(Tomorrow I will tell you what we really do here on the island in the summer!!)
