  1. FYI, this video won’t play, although the other videos work OK. (I’m using Safari on my iPad, if that matters…)

  2. Thanks for the video, I enjoyed it very much. I had met Clyde and Ken before but now I finally got a chance to see Meredith since she was not around during my last two visits. Hopefully I get a chance to meet Meredith on this years trip to the Outter Banks in September. Great job and thank you so much for sharing the video much appreciated especially by all of us that could not be there.

    • Gee Ron, I’m not sure how I missed your last two visits. I’ll be certain to be around in September!

  3. Thank you so much for the video. I enjoyed watching opening day on my computer through the webcams but to see and hear the excitement of the day is wonderful. And what a treat to put faces to names that are so familiar. Thank you for all you do and thank you for continuing to restore our past.

  4. In watching the webcams….Do Ispy with my little eye a Female Blacksmith? How very exciting! I’ve dabbled in smithy work and found it loads of fun. I tell you, my arms were never in better condition! :)
