A Sense of Place

We all have a place, a favorite spot that gives us comfort and time for pause. Maybe it’s a country, a climate, or a spot in the sun on your back deck. We just returned from a family vacation in Ocracoke, North Carolina, one of my places, a veritable paradise. This will be the fourth time in the last five years that we’ve taken the exact same vacation to this remarkable island that boasts a grand total of 900 residents in the off-season. This time around I realized that what I love the most is the elemental nature of the island: nothing but sun (fire), sea (water), sand (earth), and sky (air).  Read more here…

    I’ve never been to the beaches in North Carolina. I usually spend at least a week and maybe a couple weekends at different towns along the Jersey shor which is much closer to where I live. Looks beautiful. You must have been there at the same time I was vacationing in Stone Harbor as I came back with fireworks photos as well.

      Hi Ken. Yes, we were there over the 4th of July so fireworks were great. In fact, this was the first time in 5 years that they’ve had them on the island because of an unfortunate explain six years ago during the fireworks show. So this was the first time we’ve seen them there. I, too, frequented the Jersey shore growing up. Not much time in Stone Harbor, but Sea Isle, Ocean City, Ventor and Wildwood for sure. There are so many differences between the beaches in NJ and Ocracoke. You’d be amazed.
