On The Edge

This dock near the Yacht Basin in Southport is a favorite hangout for these stately birds. They probably think it's a great place to people watch. They are very comfortable staying in one spot for a long time so they must feel very safe.  There are several restaurants on the water so maybe the smell of food attracts them, too.
 A great  new restaurant opened across from Provision Company that is named after a lightship stationed on Frying Pan Shoals in 1854 when Bald Head Island lighthouse proved inadequate for the safety of ships. 
The lightship Frying Pan was de-commissioned in 1965, sank in 1986 and was raised in 1987. The original vessel is now a bar at Pier 63 in New York City.


  1. The bird is great but your water is fantastic. it looks as if it is moving.

    1. Thank you so much, Julie. I love painting water from any angle and it's always fun to see what you get.
