of this post, at her windblown rested best
If I'm approaching from the Northern Outer Banks, it begins when my wheels hit Highway 12 in Whalebone Junction. This two-lane scenic byway is bordered by the dunes and the Atlantic Ocean on the left; and the marsh, maritime forest, and sound on the right. Amidst the miles of unobstructed seaside beauty; quaint villages, lighthouses, and historic attractions appear and beg for attention. Some of my favorite galleries and boutiques are tucked almost strategically along the way, and each one of them has become an integral part of my escape from reality.
Whether I'm driving to Ocracoke from the North or South, my final approach to The Island itself will be by ferry. As the ferry departs the dock, my remaining cares seem to be be soothed by the wind and water. My first sandy steps on Ocracoke confirm that I'm already feeling more Rested than I was at the beginning of my journey.

On Ocracoke life seems to pass more quickly and more slowly at the same time, and I find myself feeling Rested and energized in exactly the same moments. Being on Ocracoke soothes my soul, and leaves me feeling Rested with a sublime sense of well being that's hard to describe in words. Some call it an Ocracoma; I call it my own little piece of heaven on earth, and I'm looking forward to sharing it with you at ReMe.
