A Tornado Survivor

A brutal Tornado destroyed homes and took lives in Adairsville Georgia in January 2013.

I spent time speaking to the victims for WDEF News 12 in Chattanooga and one women’s sheer disbelief left me speechless.

This short interview sums up what it is like to have everything and then nothing.

Decided to see what this famous Aquarium was all about.

It’s divided into River and Ocean sections and features specialist areas for Butterflies to Penguins.

Bit pricey but you do get a whole days enjoyment and wonder out of the place.

Worth the hype I must say, impressive feature piece to add to a stunning waterfront.

The otters seem to attract significant attention and are highly energetic.

I did interviews in both areas one with Turtles.

The other with penguins who seemed uninterested in my presence.

Their entire focus seemed to be on attaining food from the wall behind them.

Smoky Mtn Wood Carving

Spent time at a Flea Market on way to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburgh in Tennessee.

One local crafts man tells me why his form or making a living is dying in the US and across the developed world.

Where once people took up wood turning and carving he has found over the 40 years of working in the field he has less and less competitors for his goods yet interest is still high.
