In every out-thrust headland,
in every curving beach,
in every grain of sand
there is the story of the earth.

[Rachel Carson]

The photo is Battery Buchanan at Fort Fisher. Only part of this North Carolina costal fort remains. The rest has washed into the Atlantic. One of the last battles in the Civil War was fought here. We toured the fort the day we visited friends on the beach near Wilmington. Lovely place. I’ll write more when I return home.
