I was on Ocracoke last week. Nasty weather and little seafood.
Ocracoke has been hit hard with a sort of double whammy, they basically got hit with a min-tsunami with the last storm, about seven feet of flooding washed in from the sound side, wind driven. Then came the Covid crap. I love the place but Im not surprised. Theyre still struggling to get back on their feet. Good on you for trying to give them a little support. Too bad it was a disappointing trip for you, though.
