Sharks


Finally with the help of a friend who taught me where, how, and what to really look for when looking for the sharks teeth, we came up with these here from our day at the beach last Saturday. I was always looking right at the waters edge and expecting to find some larger sharks teeth, but thats really not how it goes. We went further up from the water and were able to find these. I was also expecting to find larger ones, but was told that's really rare to find those, so I settled looking for the smaller ones. The ones we found here are probably from a bull shark. So anyway, I did learn something Saturday and am looking forward to the fall after all the tourist are gone and I can search the beach for more of these sharks teeth. I believe the best time to do this is after a big storm on the ocean and when the waves really pound up on the beach. It seems to bring many shells and sharks teeth up at that time. Even if I don't find any it's really all about walking that beach with the sights, sounds, smell, and taste of the salt water. For me there is just nothing like this. There is just no comparison of the Lake Michigan beach, Muskegon, MI where I'm originally from, and the beaches of the Carolina's. The beaches down here beat them hands down. Hey, will be heading back down to that beach in North Myrtle Beach, SC this August for a weeks stay on the beach. Hopefully I will be able then to find more and if not, well then I will just enjoy the beautiful beach with family.

Court Street, Jacksonville, NC

Where did they all go? The jewelry store? The bars? The restaurants? The clothing stores? But, as I stopped to walk and take a couple of pictures I could still hear the sounds, see the sights, and smell the food from my memories of Court Street. So many changes in the past 46 years... 

And of course, don't forget Old Bridge Street

Stonewall Jackson Training School

Welcome to the Stonewall Jackson Training School located just outside Concord, NC. These here are the original buildings that were built back in 1909. Of course there is a much newer facility located behind all these buildings now. It was the first juvenile home in the state of North Carolina. I have to sit here and wonder what kind of boys were sent here. How were they treated here? Did they go on and lead productive lives from here? 

The Cannon House

One of the "cottages", as they were called, where the boys were put up. 

Another one of the "cottages".

Concord Mills Mall

Finally back to the walking routine, I hope. On the cold and really hot days I can come here and walk in the mall. It's .8 miles per lap and if you walk all the entrance's it's 1 mile per lap. If the weather is good then I can go to the Fairfield Park over in Mint Hill and walk one of the two courses there.
