On our last trip to Ocracoke, we discovered what has got to be the BEST way to have dinner on the island.
- Stay at the Bluff Shoal Motel – there are lots of great places to stay on the island, but for the price and the secret garden on Silver Lake this vintage motel is the best.
- Order a steamer pot from Captain Puddle Ducks (you can customize them to your preferences but they need a couple hours notice)
- When the steamer pot is delivered to your room take it to the lovely garden behind the hotel and enjoy a delicious private dinner on Silver Lake
- After enjoying the music of Willis Gupton floating over the water from the Jolly Roger Pub while you dine, enjoy a moonlit dance on the waterfront deck.
After a delicious meal and a good night’s rest, the next day we set out on a kayaking adventure:
