Molasses Creek performed at the new Carolina Moon Theater in Hertford, NC

My Love and I went to see them in Concert at the new Little Theater called Carolina Moon in Hertford , NC ,Saturday January 16, and it was everything I always knew it would be to see them perform in person....but even more so at the Carolina Moon, as it is a small (50 seat?) theater that allows the ultimate experience. It reminded me of the night I first saw Ceili Rain at The Pit in 1999 in Kill Devil Hills.

 The Carolina Moon and Molasses Creek made for a intimate romantic experience for my sweetheart and I and a great place to people watch too.

Alligator Wildlife Refuge Tram Tour January 9,2016

Cindy Rader Heffley  Tram Tour Interpreter

This past Saturday  as part of my birthday celebration I visited the Alligator River Wildlife Refuge Tram Tour as a visitor not the driver.   It was a lot of  fun,  and my oldest daughter Laureta Linett joined in .   

It is a tour that last from 9 am to 12 pm, in a open air tram, perfect for viewing the varieties of wildlife and waterfowl that exist, as well as the collection of Native and non-native plants and how they affect the refuge and its health.  

Corn is grown by farmers to help the waterfowl recover during their migratory times.

The Tram Tour guests at the end of a happy day
Bring a camera , a warm blanket to sit on and maybe use to cover up...dress warm , bring a drink (no alcohol) ...and be prepared to enjoy the tour and learn history about the over 150,000 acre Wildlife Refuge.

Below are some photos I took of this weekend's adventure, hosted by Cindy Rader Heffley, who will explain the animals and waterfowl you will see and the history attached to the Refuge  and Bob Glennon Private Land Biologist that will share his vast knowledge of plants , etc.

Mattamuskeet Wildlife Refuge ...a Day with the Birds

https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Northern_Pintail/id
Friday, January 1, 2016

A cooperative day for the migratory birds…as well as the resident birds.

Tundra Swans have a yellow tear drop under their eye on the bill , juvenile tundra swans are a bit smaller and greyish tones to the head. Trumpeter swans look like tundra swans, but do not have the yellow tear drop and are larger birds. The current winter range of trumpeter swans are along the west coast and in the north-central United States. Some have come to the east coast this year as they did decades ago. Some swans at Mattamuskeet have perished from suspected lead poisoning according to a refuge employees who was picking up a few dead birds from the roadsides.

  Egrets, Herons, Coots, Northern Shovelers and Divers. overall a great day please enjoy my pictures ...thank you
