South Point Sunset

Ocracoke Island is one of the few places where you can see the sun rise and set over the water. It rises over the Atlantic Ocean and sets over the Pamlico Sound. My favorite place to view the sun setting on the Island is from South Point. On this day, I was the only one out on the point. I thought I'd share it with you now... Enjoy!

Things that are beautiful and poisionus

I saw this Man O-War on Ocracoke's beach last night. I stopped to takes some photos of it. You won't often see these unusual creatures (they are not jellyfish they are pelagic colonial hydroids) on the beaches at Ocracoke... but if you do, do not touch them! They are beautiful and they are very poisonous.
