This is a photo from this past summer of Steve pushing cousins Liza & Clarice on the swing at the family farm in the NC mountains. On a cold snowy day (we have almost 1 foot of snow in mtns), it is nice to remember the good times from the summer.
A few years ago, I did this pastel painting of this "watery trail:" the Intracoastal Waterway off the NC Coast. I love the IW, and those who are fortunate enough to have spent time boating on it know how it can draw you into its magic.
This large-mouth bass is a character in my first children's book published in 2002. Her name is Madame Mossback. She can outsmart any fisherman. Note for experienced fishermen: one angler is "cheating" by using bait & a spinner together. He is desperate!
