Polaroid Prologue to Ocracoke Island


At the very tip of Hatteras Island you have the opportunity to take a ferry ride
to the neighboring island. I've been on one before but this was my first time
driving a vehicle onto a ferry. It was an interesting experience.
The free ride took approximately 45 minutes.
Meanwhile, I walked around....

See the Sea

Once across, we made our way to the next camping destination.
This one was also oceanside and we chose a site with direct access this time.
After settling into our new campsite, we had to go explore.

To the Sea

Ocracoke NPS Campground was much more open than Frisco and because of
that it lacked the same privacy that we relished at our last overnight spot, but
being a stones throw from the beach just can't be beat, so I didn't complain!

End of the Day

It was so tranquil....waves crashing.....salty sea air....blowing breeze


Welcome to Ocracoke Island

See you on Monday when I will share more of Ocracoke Island.
Until then, have a great weekend!

  5. I think these captured the way it sometimes looks on our southern beaches. It's not always crisp contrasts. It's sometimes hazy and indefinite, kind of spooky. The foliage looks tired and worn from wind, sun, and sand.

  8. Oh, to be able to walk right to the beach from the camper. Ferry boats are common here,.. we are always crossing Lake Champlain to go to Vermont and back. it saves about an hour's drive going either north or south and crossing by bridge. Enjoy that campsite!

  10. I've been interested in camping/vacationing there for a couple of years now and have had trouble convincing my husband that we should. I'm going to show him these awesome photos and try convincing him again!

  21. I love polaroids - I wish more people still used them! These pictures totally bring me back - my family went to Ocracoke when I was a kid - must have been about 20 years ago! I remember losing a tooth while there - and being quite nervous about whether the tooth fairy could find me on vacation! good memories!
