Crabbers in the Mid-morning

Crabbers aboard the boat Coriel busy themselves emptying pots in the mid-morning sunshine complete with a stiff southeast wind. A roofline in the Currituck Heritage Park across the sound shines in the sunlight.  I had not noticed the shine off the roof before now.  I thought it may be the Wildlife Center, but perhaps it is a large tent.
I visited the Wildlife Center recently; it is a very small but interesting museum with a concentration on the waterfowl hunting history of the area.  It is celebratory in the presentation with a nod at the the last exhibit to the fact that waterfowl numbers are gone from the big days of market hunting.  The birds are at trickle level today compared to the heydays.
