This past weekend Amy, David, Lachlan, and I were enjoying a beautiful Sunday afternoon at the South Point. Lachlan was exploring the edge of a deep pool connected to the ocean when he shouted for me to come see a large horseshoe crab.
David took this 31 second video of the giant arthropod making his way back to deeper water.
This month's Ocracoke Newsletter tells the delightful story of the 19th century "Stovepipe Hat" wreck. It has been told for years in books & magazines, but it probably never happened. You can read the story (and my research) here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news072115.htm.
