I have been to the little village on the River where my Mother lived several times to start clearing out the debris. She had some very odd things. I found two very large Diamond Back Rattle Snake skins (not the shed skin-the whole thing, scales & all) & a hand made suit, very chic & impossibly tiny (she weighed 95 pounds when she got married at 24). I was invited to a showing of a collection of pictures that included several of her & surprisingly, two of my father, taken at different locations on the shore). I was asked to get up & tell how she came to be in the collection & I got a nice hand of applause (probably b/c I kept it VERY brief).
I had fresh oysters & clams several times & talked to a lot of interesting people. And. because I am Southern, I got a lot of hugs. The moderator of the exhibition has written several books about the maritime people who populated the NC coast in the 18th & 19th centuries. I have begun reading them & they are very good. He has degrees from both Duke & Harvard & his mother was from Cartaret County so I should not be surprised.
