One of the joys of moving to a new town is “seeing” what makes a town unique. Two years ago my sister and I moved to Southport (North Carolina) and now call it home. After we settled in, we would take to the road to visit the neighboring towns. Even though we had already traveled to these towns, I decided I wanted to “see” what maybe I had missed on our earlier road trips. On a beautiful, sunny day last March, we set out for our “Coastal Road Trip.” This journey was documented through my photographs along with a short story. My “Coastal Road Trip” was just published in the South Brunswick Magazine-Spring 2017 issue, Pages 77-84 and can be found in local grocery stores and drug stores in Brunswick County, North Carolina, for the next three months. Be sure to pick up a copy, or you can read it here. Ah, the joys of a good road trip! Hope to see you on the road. ~ Barbara
It’s that time of the year again as the summer markets come to town. If you are in the Southport/Oak Island area of North Carolina, be sure to check out the Southport Waterfront Market every Wednesday from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. My sister and I, the Southport Sisters, will be there every Wednesday, weather permitting. Look for us under the big oak tree. Scroll down to see what we’ll have new this year!
Barbara will showcase new local scene images on note cards:
Francine will offer new shell game boards, complete with shells from Oak Island:
Francine will also bring her many varied designs of children’s growth charts:
We hope to see you at the market this summer. ~ The Southport Sisters
