Outer Banks NC (Ocracoke Island) - Blackbeard & Lighthouse

View Denzil & Brenda Eastern US Travels on Vanabout's travel map.

Ocracoke is the Southernmost Island in NC's Barrier Islands. Only accessible by ferry. Blackbeard the Pirate is rumored to host largest pirate gathering on Ocracoke. Also contains a lighthouse w/resident cat! :) Nice uncrowded island, wide beaches, unfortunately rained both days, & many mosquitos!.

Ocracoke lighthouse had an onsite gray cat mascot.

Denzil in the area Blackbeard (the Pirate) held the Largest Pirate Gathering in the World

Ocracoke is known for their horses that originated from Spain

Unspoiled beaches, rainy days, limited access island still. No wonder Blackbeard liked Ocracoke!
