Silver Lake Harbor - Ocracoke

Silver Lake Harbor

Silver Lake Harbor

Drive to the end of route 12 into the litlle village around Silver Lake Harbor. This great little fishing village is so cool, it's like stepping back in time. Filled with many small shops of all types like local artist and seafood restaurants and plenty of gift shops.

Dune Shots! - Ocracoke

Dune Shots!

I just love photos of dunes!

I just love taking pictures of the dunes in the Outer Banks, Ocracoke is no exception! All the dunes are protected by the National Park Services, so take care were you step. This shot is at the north end of Ocracoke Island looking toward the south end of Hatteras Island.

Ocracoke Ponies

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. In 1958 they were put in this area to protect them from passing cars on the newly built route 12.

Ocracoke Lighthouse - Ocracoke

Ocracoke Lighthouse

Visit the 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.
