Deb and I enjoyed a quiet sunrise walk and then we all headed to the Cape Lookout Lighthouse – turned out to be closed on Mondays (and Sundays) – It was a great long weekend, lots of solitude, no drunk idiots and loud music. Most of the time, we couldn’t see another truck or tent from our campsite and no more than a dozen trucks passed us all day on the beach. Dinner was in New Bern (awesome town) Despite getting home after 10pm, we all agreed it was very relaxing!

We escaped to Cape Lookout for Memorial Day weekend. Clay and Kay joined us, and after a sunrise ferry ride and 10 miles or so of beach driving we found a soft sandy spot, set up camp and relaxed. Swimming, fishing, a nap, and ghost crab hunting. The dead sea turtle is marked by the NPS – so no body takes the shell  and to limit the number of “I found a dead turtle” calls.

Camped in the ferry parking lot. When you have a 6am ferry and arrive at their lot at 10pm, you camp. Deb and I slept under the stars in the cots (foreground) and let the girls (Sam and Sarah) have the Flippac with the dog.

Most of his work is large format (8×10 cameras) “Digital is trying to protect me from myself, I don’t need it to,” he said as he talked about tonal range, “I have a light meter and know how to use it.” Even with his mirror less camera, he shoots manual exposure and focus with a Leica lens.

We are planning to host a talk by Burk at RCC this Fall!
