There are only two ways to get to and from Ocracoke away. You take the ship or the plane. We came by ship, more presicelly the ferry which runs from Hatteras. The most southern point of the main outer banks island. Once arrived we checked in to the Harborside Motel. Cindy who runs the motel with her husband welcomed us really friendly and even offerd to check for us if there are any free capacities on the ferry leaving early next morning. Whitch wasn't such a complicated thing to do because her cousin works at the ferry office. She later told us, that she's related to half of the island anyway.
86 degree F and sunny weather so it had to be even it was almost 7 o'clock in the evening that we went swimming in the atlantic ocean witch also happend to be quite warm.
