6:36 am
a good experience your first apartment this is very real you may live there that's why we want a little solar. our island has limited occupations on it so 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 treaty they will have to go to other areas to get a job say 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 trading. for a. set of what to say oh yeah i'm fine i'm ok i can that's what i think she writes here you can see. that. and see.
6:37 am
what. there is some of the. and all. just but.
6:38 am
i sailed into tangier on a fifty foot sailboat and david came alongside and it was very friendly and we invited him to supper and he came back with this guitar and sang all night the belly of the boat and i was so overwhelmed his voice his beauty his charm. and i fell in love and when he left that night i said to the guys i was sailing with. there goes the man i'm going to marry. now. now. a piece of glass. too much on.
6:39 am
old. that's a pretty one yeah. but it's sharp or always just that's a kind of went down between two pieces of wood and then they they wrote it tight. and i used it for spears. and for an arrow. but when there's a lot of history and the arrow heads. we're not sure when we were settled but we were discovered sixteen away and we had our four hundred anniversary in two thousand and eight and that was a big day on the island so that was really special but indians were here thousands
6:40 am
of years before we all were. want to see but. 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 a 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
6:41 am
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 the 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 of this place is always at 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
6:42 am
island of the people that are living here and they would rather them leave the island shrinking every year it costs the government money they've got to worry about the people being here so they feel that really the people should leave and little the mainland. please. please.

forty two feet no you didn't do you couldn't pull dylan if need for he's a little beleaguered. for they go. if the day is especially things involving children tend to grow up people live. such a close knit community you high. you know it's a rare feeling to have a family. as a mother and father and mandate of both sets of grandparents of sometimes great grandparents and aunts and uncles and cousins or you know living really in the same community so. maybe taking part in doing something here a disadvantage day but my mother and father will come to my wife's mother and father will come scram father make my wife's sister who is much too runs make so. the summer. is

6:48 am
folks on. we look out for each other we get competitive some calls with the kids that somebody is in trouble or deal with goes for together and come together and help. everybody just. sort of like off like a big family. thank you. very well yet deal. james and screech is the mayor of tangier. but even though he's his name is james eskridge he is known even in the newspapers as. when james was a very small boy apparently they had a rooster and he couldn't say verster but he could say. and that's where that nickname came in has stuck with him his entire life even the newspapers call him hooper eskridge one of the benefits here live and don't have to try to get
6:49 am
oh oh. well everything i. learned here how the war on the war and i believe this will help me in life on the time being i'll be working on the worst day oh. i was. just not enough money in it and i figured times was next best thing it's to win the war or. the government trying to you don't want to because there's the government saying we are kilo of crime it's not really stood still rockfish population gets to. run women on it now durban third most don't the farm he waited three sharan and take the old cry if it's not a we just get the blame for it. probably stay here rest malloy because i love it
6:50 am
here it's nice you know everybody has a nice place to live. you. know your son sleep. i love your. show you. my. education. if you. can.
6:51 am
find. serious course for concern where young people link the island because we're aware that that's what's going to happen in the population so it's come on the side because we know that if we don't have people staying here then the play obliges can somehow dissipate you and. so you believe we have a part of it that is more protected so what have you done to make sure that our her
6:52 am
it is protected in the future or what have you done to ensure that we will get us the wall right each of you have written letters that's right you have written to our president you've written to our governor you've written to our state and local and national officials as well and that of course is one of the greatest forms of patriotism not only is patriotism love for your nation or love for your state but patriotism is also for your small island tangier. the seawall that we're looking to get into future in the next few years is going to be just across from this one this is the west entrance and your arbor. but it's such a great set such a wide opening here alone we get storms in wind from the west from northwest swells ways roll right into the harbor so we're actually trying to. make it
6:53 am
a smaller opening here so it'll protect. right and you can both see dollar bill as you come in to the harbor here you can see over to your way out. off all the six that are crap shanties that stores have destroyed because there's no protection here. there's just a graveyard. this is. my mom and dad over here as my brother in law are all. good friend plus. addresses bogan made a murray. they always want a crab. but. some opposition want to be buried here she said you. know where i was from a and i tell her if she better bear i me and. not
6:54 am
a say if i manage to say i told her i'm a twist entirely and i want a horror every other night. so we're worth a place that used to be used to be up for the small community was actually was another community called a cheese i hear in this direction which it's completely out in the water now. over here and yes now for more of the small mobile home is there was a lot to treat out here and several homes in a small schoolhouse and. it was a thraldom community it went on. right here are some of the. graves it were here and one of the graveyard you can sit in here. this is a true it's. one of the scenes from cain's year. and there were numerous
6:55 am
graves here and there was also another brick. yard which went into the water a couple years ago. thanks so when they were burying these folks they were well inland and on very all the ground and now there are god into war. that's that's what we don't want to happen to change your all and we want to get some protection and make sure that we don't go into the chesapeake bay like uppers did in other communities. watch and.
6:56 am
