opinion. well from. science technology innovation all the latest developments from around russia we've got the future covered. ok. i democratic it welcome you to tangier island virginia it's a little island the middle of the chesapeake bay and of a genius and i come back county for a population around four hundred seventy people give or take. ever most or pay for independent water among our fishermen crabbers and twenty percent are where our tug boat captains are our tanker money our our our second mates on the six. so far we're holding on to ourself that erosion has taken us to take in
a so way slowly but other than dad everybody saves the vacant and right now worried by to future but being a waterman you are a day by day and night not you can't worry about tomorrow you have to get by today and he hopes the morning you wake up there's a new light. you get up but if it's busy i'll get up to thirty. posts on three o'clock in the morning. i'm surprised. it's all friends ready for market. for the order bride. and degrading when you sam alito. and. thomas john roberts.
and. condi rice and i am called for. a conservative group. oh they can do the mainly. for the been taken to. interphase ready trucks to dinner new york. of all used to she had crabs in the same spot here and my grandfather before him. most of most of the fishermen are cried result and year. they did their following her father's footsteps. to take. on. mines but. we did not survive because the line. was an.
issue on the boat. thank you right now. this evening. i want to become a fan want to say i crossed. my old sea of my mother a five. this just bought a right here was called my ten year you know the forty two foot twin day show by now under a place because you know i had to get out of it because a medical problem and that it was a really good job and i really miss it. so now i just sit here and stare across the water instead of out there riding up and down the water. but just watching that all
wash away is just i just noticed this since i was a little boy you know i just wish now i had paid attention and skilled and maybe i got an education maybe help. you it was a gang kids. could derail it. and. you know today you know are just islanders just shrink is a no no or sink in but i think we're also a road rapidly. this is an old picture of tangier island before the channel which cut through right here is where jerry's boat yard. oh dash. as gold. oh hair. go way up there. and go all.
the credit grabbing season begins. around the middle of margin runs to the end of november and a cry absent a winner column there are your state very down and bottom in. the one column and then when the water temperature gets up to fifty degrees east are both going to run again. a ramp and you're all in the chesapeake bay probably one of the best areas in the country fell for it. or is dark red steam you cooked a hard fragment to get made out of it and the soft bread you need to hold on fred walls and all. eyes are made are made on the summer going to make much money off you get good winter. it's very difficult for
women on the job because most jobs is on the water and the dial is in again both ways there are many and you know they crap on they craves great. says so restaurants you can find a job a waitress and babysit for monsoon work. maybe storekeeper you know at the grocery store or at the ice cream places. some volunteer work at the museum but basically that's all the work related on the air. some people like to live by himself but that this is normal competitive that you have to get on with your parents you also fair with a room and. living by yourself can sometimes not be good it's become
and i say we don't want that to have a good time we want to have a good experience here first apartment this is very real you made it live there was 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 training they will have to go to other areas to get into. 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
all of you. just. 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 good. 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.
for a piece of glass. for much time so. follow this trail. that's a pretty one. but it's sharp or all wood just that's a kind of went down in between two pieces of wood and then they they wrote it tight . and use it for spears. and for bone marrow. but when there's a lot of history and the arrowheads. 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 of years before we all were. 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 diversity of wildlife where the wildlife has a place to stop burbs 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 island of the people who 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. doesn't. believe. it was a terrible day and was very hard to take up. once again so long here is a plan why haven't you ever had sex with her rick perry nobody's. going to want.
a little blue. for they go. if the day is especially things involving children tend to drawl people lie. such a close knit community you high of you know it's a rare thing to have a family. as a mother and father and mandate have both sets of grandparents of sometimes great grandparents and aunts and uncles and cousins and you know living right in the same community so my child may be taking part in doing something here a disadvantage day but my mother and father will come my wife's mother and father will come my wife scran father may come my wife's sister who is much eldon's so. the summer. is. panama and she's been hanging around for a couple years now goes down to for the winter fun in summer golf in fact here.
i'll feed her in a little bit. interests are. probably. my. feel consumption a quart of fuel on board not good. when you've been here about the policeman every day make a pretty good. chance crab and see if they had a few other houses they usually keep some of their selves you know to get some. folks on. we look out for each other we get competitive some calls with the kids
that somebody is in trouble believe goes pull together and come together and help. everybody just. sort of like off like a big family. thank you. we will yet feel they have a head and james and screech is the mayor as to. that 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 could say verster pretty good safe. and that's where that nickname came in has stuck with him his entire life even the newspapers call him or eskridge one of the benefits here live and don't have to try to get oh oh.
well everything i do is learn how to warm on the water and i believe this will help me in life on the tug beano be working on the worst day oh. i was. just not enough money in it and i figured times worse next best thing is to win the war or. the government trying you don't want to know the order because the government signed we are still a lot of cry it's not really stood still rock this population gets to put the wrong women on it now has been heard most don't have populated fish around and take the old cry of it's not a we just get the blame for. staying here rest of my life because i love it here it's nice you know everybody is a nice place to live. you. know
serious course for concern where young people link the island because we're aware of it. 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 way of light is to somehow dissipate and. so you believe we have a part of it that is more protected that is so what have you done to make sure that our her it is protected in the future or what have you done to ensure that we will
get us to the wall right each of you have written letters that's right you have written to our president your fridge 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 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. but it's such a great set such a wall at opening when we get storms and wind from the west from northwest swells 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 out. off all the six that are crap shanties that stores have destroyed because there's no protection here. this is a graveyard. this is. my mom and dad over here as my brother in law are all. playing crocket fran plus cows and. horses boat and major murray. and they always want a crab. but. when i ask. some opposition i want to be a barrier she said yeah. we're away from the end but i tolerate she better bar i'm in a. lot of if i'm in a safe i told her i'm a twist entirely and i want a horror every other night. so we're we're at the place that used to be
used to be up for the small community was actually it was another community called a cs i hear in this direction which it's completely out in the water now. purges over here and yes now for more of the small mobile home is there was a lot to please out here and several homes in a small schoolhouse and. it was a thraldom community of one telling. right here or somebody had stones from 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 graves here and there was also another brick. yard which went into water
a couple years ago. so when they were burying these folks they were well inland and on very all the ground and now there are odd interwar. that's that's what we don't want 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. let. us. say.
