Sunrise on Bay River, Bayboro, North Carolina

The first Saturday of July, small town Oriental, North Carolina begins its annual Croaker Festival with a parade down main street. This year, the 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing Band from Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Cherry Point, NC both marched in the parade and then, played for the town. (By the bye MCAS, Cherry Point – just happens to be my birth place many years ago).
This is just a small snippet from the parade of some of my favorite entries. This year I was totally enamored with the little trucks. I want one, they were fabulous. And … I also liked how the dragon, Oriental’s mascot, looked lovingly on to the America Flag — it is almost July 4th after all!
Songs from each military branch: “Anchors Away” for the U.S. Navy, “The Caissons Go Rolling Along” for the U.S. Army, “The Wild Blue Yonder” for the U.S. Air Force, and “Semper-Paratus” for the U.S. Coast Guard. The Marine Corps Hymm, below. (Wouldn’t you know my phone rang right in the middle, so missed a bit and split in two).

The Rose Garden, in Wilson, North Carolina contains over 1200 rose plants consisting of 180 different varieties. The roses typically bloom between May and October each year. I’ve stopped several times traveling between Southern Maryland and Oriental, North Carolina to smell the roses (or to photograph them). They are simply beautiful — !

The Arlington House (also known as the Lee House) sits on the hillside over looking the Potomac River and Washington, DC. The Arlington House looks over 250,000 military grave sites. These photos were taken standing directly in front of the Arlington House over looking the eternal flame of John F. Kennedy’s grave site and the rest of Washington, DC. Can you imagine this sunrise/view every day?

I was looking for lions, tigers, or bears… found flowers instead at Mattamuskeet, North Carolina.
