Sometimes the days can seem pretty hectic on Ocracoke. There are ghost tours and the Opry. There are porch talks and dockside talks as well.
But once in a while silence falls upon the day and my time is spent watching dragonflies dance in the morning sun or stars twinkle in the evening sky.
The other day when my family was visiting we found ourselves playing at the beach. My little granddaughters tossed their crackers out to the seagulls. They laughed and laughed when the gulls swooped down.
I grabbed my camera and took this shot. It defines lazy days on Ocracoke.
