3121 VDT

Commissions are always a little weird for me most of the time anyway, but this one is remarkable in that the client wanted the same house painted 3 times. I did 4 just to allow myself the opportunity to fail once or else I did one more to make the other 3 better. you decide.
Thanks for everything and I hope all of these are sold.

Mount Oyster

The North Carolina Dept. of Marine Fisheries keeps a stockpile of oyster shells on a vacant piece of property along the harbor in Wanchese, North Carolina. NCDMF uses the spent oyster shells to replenish and create new oyster beds in the Pamlico and Alblemarle Sounds. This is one mountain you don't want to climb in the summer. Whew!!
