1:35 pm
fresh walls and all. that are made are made on the summer floor to make as much money off get good water . it's very difficult for women on the job because most jobs is on the water and the gal is you know young both ways there are many and you know they cry and they crave great. says so restaurants you can find a job a waitress in babysit for moms who work. maybe storekeeper you know at the grocery store or at the ice cream places. some balance here work at the museum but basically that's all the work related on the air.
1:36 pm
some people like to the place themselves but that this is normal and companionship 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 your first apartment this is very real you may live there that's a whole lot of 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 in. a few of them may end up back on the
1:37 pm
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. trucks were to. set up what you say oh yeah i'm fine i'm ok i can. see let's hear you i'm seeing a case here right. now .
1:38 pm
but. there is more. and all. this. 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.
1:39 pm
now. now. oh boy ballers are ahead. for a piece of glass. for much on. all of this for him. that's a pretty one. but it's sharp or always just that's
1:40 pm
a kind of went down in between two pieces of wood and then they they wrote it tight . and used 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 deal 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
1:41 pm
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 the natural changes through it storms and so forth that just
1:42 pm
happens. but it would be a shame to see those 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 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.

1:50 pm
the war. the government trying to you don't want to know the order because the government saying we are kilo of crime it's not really stood still rock this population gets to put the wrong women on it now has been heard most don't the populated fish around and they kill or cry if it's not a we just get the blame for. staying here rest malloy because i love it here it's noisy she know everybody is a nice place to live. you. know yourself sleep. a little or. no use.
1:51 pm
my. education. if you. can't. find. serious course for concern where young people link the island because we're aware of it that's what's going to happen to the population so it's come on the side because we know that if we don't have people staying here in the way of light is going to somehow disappoint you and.
1:52 pm
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 the wall right each of you have written letters that's right you've 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
1:53 pm
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 define 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 the northwest swells ways roll right into the harbor so we're actually trying to. make it a smaller open in new york 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 off. off all the six other crap shanties that stores have destroyed because there's no protection here. there's just a family graveyard. of my mom and dad over error as my
1:54 pm

1:55 pm
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 stones from the graves . and one of the graveyard you can sit in here. this is a true it's. one of the psni mission. and there were numerous graves here and there was also another brick. yards farther out which went into the water a couple years ago. so when they were bare in 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 happen to taint your all and we want to get some protection to make sure that we don't go into the chesapeake bay like uppers did in
