I’ve been eyeing this spot where the cypress trees grow out of the water just a bit south west of Oriental, NC for sometime. I had this vision for a perfect sunrise. I finally made it! The sun was a bit too far to the east yet to rise directly behind the cypress trees, but the color and the reflections were fabulous!

“Nostalgia is like a grammar lesson: you find the present tense, but the past perfect!” — Owen Lee Pomeroy
The first Saturday in July is the Oriental, North Carolina Croaker Parade. A fun hometown parade that features Miss Minnow, the Croaker Queen, the Pamlico County Community Band, and other clever entries that support the year’s theme. This year’s theme, “Embrace Your Volunteer Spirit”, was exciting to watch. Broad, the main drag in Oriental, and Hodges Streets are lined with families, of all different configurations, waving flags, cheering participants, and catching penny candy tossed their way by those riding or walking in the parade. This fun hometown parade could have been an episode scripted right out of the Andy Griffith Show — now that and some of the wonderful entries are some sweet nostalgia!

My first visit to Airlie Gardens was blogged in early May under the title: The Garden by the Sea. I loved it— it was beautiful and peaceful and I spent the day meandering around the gardens without a care in the world. I couldn’t wait for a return visit. So.. I visited this Labor Day Weekend, late summer! — The camera clutz that I am, my lens hood fell onto Bradley Creek Pier and rolled right into Bradley Creek, never to be seen again. Nothing was in bloom other than the odd flower here or there and it was hot, hot, hot. The gardens were green; still beautiful… still peaceful — and instead of the day meandering — an hour or two of purposeful walking that yielded the following results:
From Maryland and sometimes North Carolina, where land and sea meet the sky.
