Greg Jacobs and LTAB in Manteo, NC - Part 2.



Day four of LTAB's Southern Circuit tour could pretty much be described as, well, perfect. It started with a warm, fresh-baked donut from Duck's - probably the best donut I've ever had in my life. Remarkably, the rest of the day didn't get worse from there: a visit to the Wright Brothers national memorial; dune climbing at Jockey's Ridge State Park in Nag's Head; wandering around Manteo; and geekiest of all, a trip to the Fort Raleigh historic site on Roanoke Island (as a kid, the story of the Lost Colony of Roanoke was always one of my favorites...I still can't believe there are no heavy metal bands named "Croatoan" - the word carved into a tree that remains the only clue to the colonists' fate.)

The screening took place in the beautiful theater at the Roanoke Island Festival Park. Very special thanks to Laura Martier and Lindsay Nielson of the Dare County Arts Council for inviting the film to screen, and for providing the ideal ending to a perfect day.
