OBLHS Retreat Day 2 - Southport and Price's Creek

Just got back from a lighthouse trip? Have you just finished photographing every aspect of one lighthouse? Post the pictures here! Lighthouse-related photos are also welcome.

Day 2 of the retreat focused on the history of the town of Southport. We started out at the Maritime Museum http://www.ah.dcr.state.nc.us/sections/maritime/branches/southport_default.htmfor a presentation about the museum. From there it was a walking tour around the town that ended at the Ricky Evans Gallery - http://www.rickyevansgallery.com/ The Old County Jail was one of the many stops along the walk

Lunch was on our own and then it was off to our tours of Price's Creek. I'll assume by now you've all seen the great photos from Christina and Stephen. If you haven't, then be sure to check our the photos in their postings.

After the Price's Creek tours were finished, we met back up at the Maritime Museum. From there the group proceeded to crash a wedding. The historical society had a cannon that was being used in the wedding and we were off to see the cannon being shot. How odd it must have been to have 50 some people show up to watch your wedding. It was odd from our end too - I don't think I would have liked all those extra people showing up at my wedding just to see the cannon but nothing can be done about it now. It was then back to the museum for a BBQ dinner.

And here is the group shot Judy had mentioned in another post. All pictured are members of this site. Unfortunately some left the dinner early so we didn't get everyone in this photo.

I wondered how long it would be before this one made it into posting.

Not a bad looking group, huh? :D

I believe those LH.net members missing from the photo were Murray & Kath (obxlhs), and Cheryl Roberts.

Notice how we emptied all the chairs around us when the rest of the folks saw a camera being aimed?

Ususally I am pretty good at getting away from the eye of the camera too.

I will probably catch some heat for posting these but here we go.

This first one is of Judy and Shirin listening to the tour guide on our walking tour of the town.

Bett and Betty on the way back from Price's Creek.

Christina in the lighthouse :D

Some of the folks heading over to the lighthouse. Cheryl Roberts is in this photo.

Enjoy!

Here are a few more photos.....

This is one of my signature photos. . . one of Stephen taking a picture. I have to get at least one of these each trip.

Here is a close up of the man who holds the key to my heart. (I know...mushy) Isn't he hot!

This is one of two of our own LH.net photographers at work.

Here are some members getting ready for the second last boat off the island, as I was on the last boat over.

Another one of some members hangin' round.

Loading up. This pontoon boat is definitely a switch from the "Jaws" we had for the annual this past October at C. Lookout!

Posting any others would be repetitive.
