6:37 pm
therefore a lot of these children have interests with things that are not available on the island and therefore when they go off and get their college or training they will have to go to other areas to get in. a few of them may end up back on the island because of having a health center here or school here but other than that they are not going to be finding a job on the island they may come back and retire but they're not going to be working here when they're right out of college or trade. said to say oh yeah i'm fine and i can. see let's hear you and see things in your life. and see.

6:41 pm
i don't find places like that very often. they just don't exist anymore you don't have these pristine beaches where you can just go in. and watch and learn from from what you see. it would be a real shame for this island to disappear there's a way of life here that's unique to. this country the the crabbers the oystermen and so forth it's very hard life and yet we get to enjoy the fruits of their labor but it's also special to me because there aren't very many places left where you can see the diversity of wildlife where the wildlife has

a place to stop birds come through here from south america heading up the bay heading towards their nesting grounds and a lot of them stop over here it's important for the survival of various species and we're losing more and more of this type of habitat part of it is sea level rise part of it is just a natural changes to it storms and so forth that just happens. but it would be a shame to see this totally wiped out. every time there's a hurricane at this place is always a risk it slides they try to evacuate people lots of times people won't go because they want to stay with their houses but the bottom line is that creates problems coastguard and whatever has to worry about the island of the people that are living here and they would rather them leave the island is shrinking every year it costs

6:54 pm
looking to get in the future in the next few years is going to be just across from this one this is the west entrance and your arbor and but it's such a great set such a wall and open and you're alone we get storms in wind from the west from north west swells or ways roll right into the harbor so we're actually trying to. make it a smaller opening here so it'll protect. right and using boats and dollars as you're coming in to the harbor here you can see over to your way off. off all the six that are crap shanties that stores have destroyed because there's no protection here. there's just a family graveyard. and this is. my mom and dad over here are just my brother in law are all. playing crocket a friend plus. addresses boat and made a murray. they always want
