During certain times of the year, the ONLY hospital on the Outer Banks gets pretty busy. During these busy times, the ER gets understaffed. Dr. Gooch goes out periodically to help 'em out. When we can, we join him! We feel so fortunate to be able to do this because it is such a beautiful place.
Ocrakoke has the best beaches, of so the locals tell us. And we believe them. It takes about 1 1/2 hours to make the trek. But, sailing across with the seagulls, being mesmerized by the wake off the end of the boat, and waving to other passing vessels, it makes it all worth it (plus the fine sand and crystal clear water once you're there!).
