Although not as frequently seen as other sea birds, they are a delight to watch.

HISTORIC WILLIAMSBURG
THE CAPITOL

For Larger View Click on Picture
The historic area of Williamsburg centers around the Duke of Gloucester Street.

At one end stood the “Capitol”, the British symbol of its authority in the colony. At the other end stood the College of William & Mary, the second oldest college in the United States.

While the colonists could petition the king through their “legislators”, it was clear that they were ruled by the King and they were not free to manage their own country. The original building was destroyed by fire. The present building was built from the original plans, and the location was established by a recovered detailed drawing of the town sites.

HOME FROM THE SEA

For Larger View Click on Picture
Who doesn’t enjoy the brightly-colored buoys crafted by fishermen to harvest their catch? These hand-made buoys are used to locate and identify each fisherman’s territory.  

In the Pamlico and Albemarle Sounds of North Carolina they identify crab pots (cages). Sadly, young Carolina Fishermen have taken to using empty white, plastic containers instead of wooden buoys. They are cheap and can be made quickly.  In the New England area, the bright buoys are used to locate and identify lobster pots.  Fishermen can readily identify each other’s “territory” and woe is the “poacher” who attempts to steal another’s catch.

RAINBOW ROW

For Larger View Click on Picture
The historic district of Charleston, S.C. includes a row of brightly painted homes known as “Rainbow Row” along East Bay Street.  The Lord Proprietors of London settled Charles Town in 1680 on a tip of a peninsula now known as the Battery.  During the Civil War, southern blockade-running ships from Charleston brought in the much-needed supplies for the south. In “Gone With the Wind” Rhett Butler was characterized as one of the best pilots running the blockade.  There are more than 1,000 residential, civic, and religious structures within Charleston’s historic district. The old streets are a living museum for admirers and students of architectural design.

TENDING THE BARN

For Larger View Click on Picture
Tobacco has been a major money crop for eastern North Carolina since the Civil War. 

An important step in preparing the crop for the market is the flue-curing process. Until the early 1940’s this involved curing the tobacco by heating by wood.

It was an around-the-clock job to “tend the barn”.

PUT'N IN

For Larger View Click on Picture
Tobacco has been a main NC money crop for most of the 20th century. In the '30's tobacco was "primed" by hand, transported on sleds, tied on sticks, and cured in tobacco barns.

After curing, tobacco would be graded and taken to the market where families sometimes stayed days to "see after" the sales.

SPRING HAULOUT

For Larger View Click on Picture
Every spring small, coastal fisherman make ready for the new season.  An important job is to prepare their boat by scrapping and cleaning the bottom of the boat to remove barnacles and scum.  Next, they apply an anti-fouling paint on the boat's bottom to retard build-up of scum and barnacles.

Their fishing and crabbing areas are in the creeks and sounds of the coast.  They "lay claim" to an area they mark with nets and buoys.  Many fisherman work part-time since it is hard to make a living with seasonal and unpredictable harvests.
