Travel Haiku - Ocracoke Island (North Carolina)

Poem By john tiong chunghoo

the children fight over
who should be Blackbeard

behind the oldest lighthouse
shadow of a fierce pirate

Ocracoke Island, accessible only by ferry or private plane, boasts 16 miles of some of the country's best beaches. Despite the cold weather, unwind here by going sailing, crabbing, or fishing; visit North Carolina's oldest operating lighthouse; or follow the footsteps of the pirate Blackbeard, who, according to legend, roamed these lands centuries ago. Wake up early enough and you can catch radiant sherbet-colored skies at sunrise

It is a beautiful place. I love the speckled trout fishing there in the fall and spring. A hard place to get to but well worth the trip and the read.
