This past week I took a trip to Santee State Park in Santee, SC for a few nights. Santee State Park is right on Lake Marion, which is a large, beautiful Lake surrounded by lots of wildlife. My back yard is pictured on the left and it reminded me of a scene from the 60's TV show "Gilligan's Island". It was very swampy and I can only imagine how close a gator or two were from my cabin. On my trip I got to see a couple of armadillos, some wild hogs, deer and fox squirrels.
Each night I would set up my recording gear to get some night sounds including sounds of the frogs croaking away.
Take a listen to the frogs below. This sound is available for purchase on AudioJungle.
Old Brunswick Town is an old pre-revolutionary fort on North Carolina's Cape Fear River. It's about 15 miles from my home and I enjoy an occasional trip there for visit. Today I went all by my lonesome for a nice walk and I took along some recording gear to capture some sounds. Fortunately, there was only a few people there and I had the fort practically to myself. I was able to capture several clean ambiences. There was a nice breeze blowing and it wasn't too hot. I can only imagine what life was like there back in the early 1700s. A lot has changed but it's a nice place to visit, reflect and ponder life!
Take a listen to one of the sounds I captured. This sound will be available for purchase on AudioJungle within the next few days.
I promised I would share the final workbench/vice restoration project I've been working on the last few weeks and here it is! Though it's not a large workbench it works well for me. I'm very happy having my Dad's old vice restored and mounted. Also, the drawer on the right contains wood from the kitchen drawers that were in the home I grew up in. We used to keep our telephone book in that drawer (remember those?}!
This table is solid as a rock! That red oak is quite heavy and made a beautiful workbench. I enjoyed the process of building it and it's something that I can use and cherish in days to come.
