Crow I

Oddly, I think fish crows were among my favorite subjects this year on the Outer Banks. The first of a series.

Conch Shell

I'm envious of anyone who finds a conch shell mostly intact. After visiting the Outer Banks for many years and walking along its shores for many more miles, I've never found one fully intact. Still, I find even the badly fragmented pieces fascinating.

A friend tells me that this is a T-34C "Turbo-Mentor" used by the Navy, Marines and Coast Guard to train pilots. 

He said, in fact, that he had taken his pilot training in one of these, proving that they are indeed 'vintage" aircraft, although I understand that they are still being used for training. :-)
