With two full days to spend in Ocracoke we had a perfect amount of time to relax on the beach and explore the tiny town on bicycle. Each morning we biked 3 miles into the village for a cup of coffee and a tasty breakfast before riding around the side streets and stopping to see the lighthouse or browse the shops. One afternoon we were a bit spontaneous and jumped aboard an old oyster sail boat for a cruise into the ocean with a long time local and sailor.
Our afternoons were spent sitting under the bright blue umbrella as we hid from the strong North Carolina sunshine. The ocean was the perfect way to cool down ... along with a crisp and chilly IPA!
