So here is a reason to go to Ocracoke (as if you needed another one). Halloween weekend is pirate time. And they are all over the island. Most of our trivia team (which seems to do a lot more than play trivia together) headed out to the island for the weekend. We camped at the Beachcomber campground, which was as good as always, and mingled with the pirates. They had pirates from all over camping and teaching folks about life in those times. There was a reenactment of the end of Blackbeard. Just great fun all around.
