it was our first time visiting wilmington, nc and it is quite the charming little southern colonial town. beautiful old buildings, a healthy and vibrant downtown, and a short drive to the ocean. despite staying in a ramada inn set smack dab in the middle of urban sprawl, we enjoyed our time there immensely.
here are a couple of panoramae. the first was made in greenfield park, along the bird thick shores of greenfield lake. we circumnavigated the shores of the lake, crossing paths with joggers, egrets, and the occasional closeted military man out cruising for some hot man-on-man action…i mean, why else would the same guy keep driving past us with no shirt on, staring intently?
the second was made at wrightsville beach just after sunset. even though the sky was darkening, there were still a bunch of surfers frolicking in the water, trying to squeeze the last drops of joy out of the day. there’s some footage of them in the video below…
this audio recording was also made at wrightsville beach:
here are some random photos taken around wilmington and wrightsville beach.

all of these photos, panoramae and sounds were recorded on december 9, 2011, day 70 of my daily video journal project. here’s what this day’s entry in this infernal project looks like:
oh yeah! at the end of that video, you see a bunch of people filing into historic thalian hall to watch a community theater production of the sound of music. while video recording and photography during the performance was strictly verboten, i managed to sneak in a little audio recording…i think maria would have appreciated this minor act of rebellion. anyway, here’s a snippet of that performance.
