A Few More Tangier Island Photos
The Beach: The beach was very pretty and was a nice walk in the evening at sunset.
Entrepreneurs: These two little girls (ages 8 and 9) were selling candles in front of the little Post Office. They poured colored wax into empty clamshells from the beach, and hand lettered "With Love from Tangier Island" on them. They were $2 apiece. I gave them $10 for 4 and they let me take their picture.
Sunset from the porch on my cottage. I looked out over a marsh that was just filled with all kinds of herons, egrets, ducks and other seabirds. There was a wooden walkway to the beach. This was sunset Wednesday night when I arrived. When Tropical Storm Cindy hit on Thursday night, the water had flooded the marsh and was right up to the foot of my cottage.
