This is the best time of the year to go fishing. I do promise my buyers three free fishing trips and I have made over five hundred trips off shore.
The Nina and Pinta showed up here close to Southport and St James. They were on the way to Wilmington to go on display for this week. Looks like a tough way to get from Spain to our new world!
These are actually replicas of Christopher Columbus’s ships. These floating museums visit ports around the world to educate the public on the history of the ships.
The Nina and the Pinta were hand selected by Columbus to make four transatlantic voyages over a 12-year period to open up a new world that people pretty much didn’t think existed,” Captain Stephen Sanger said. “You know, a lot of people(at the time) thinking the world is flat and going out there and proving the world is round.” Sanger is captain of the Nina.
Tickets are available to go onto the ship! It is located in Wilmington, NC which is just a short drive from St.James Plantation! This is one of the many events that happen in and around the area for everyone to enjoy!
I just got back from a fun fishing trip with two of my friends. We caught twelve of these beautiful 10 foot sails. We fished from a small boat and did everything ourselves, with only directions from the captain. Talk about fun!
St James is a guarded gate community. Property owners use their electronic pass to open the gates. All others check in with the gatehouse guards. We have three guarded entrances and the fourth gatehouse will open late March. We do enjoy the security within St James.
It’s that time of year when the bluebirds are pairing up and looking for places to nest. Happily the bluebird house on our back porch is in high demand.
Caught our limit of sea trout last week. That is four per fisherman. If you ask me, I will even tell you where we caught them. They are delicious to eat fresh. We have caught a total of forty one of them, so far, this winter.
