    Ocracoke Ponies

    There are only about 2 dozen horses left which have been corralled in a 180 acre spot about 7 mile north of Ocracoke Village. These horses are descendants of the horses used by the Coast Guard to patrol the beaches and by tone of he only mounted Boy Scout troups in America.

    Ocracoke Lighthouse

    This lighthouse is the 2nd, the 1st was built and finished in 1803 by Dearborn who also built the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse at the same time. The 1st was struck by lightning in August 1818 which destroyed the tower & the keepers house. The new lighthouse that you see today was relocated to the banks near Silver Lake Harbor and completed in 1823. This lighthouse is one of the oldest in the Outer Banks of North Carolina and one of the oldest still active on the South Atlantic Coast. The tower is closed to the public but the ground are open.

    I think the best way to see this ecdentric, ecelectic place is by foot or on a bicycle, stopping when you choose in her unique shops, to browse or buy, to sort through some of the items that they have, expecially in the book stores.

    This chef provides various kinds of salads and sandwiches in hall next to him. Just kidding, but you can buy those food and drinks from the store. It is of a very short walking distance from the Ocracoke Light House.

    The beaches in Ocracoke were beautiful! If you get time it is something that you should defiantly not miss. They were so secluded and clean.
