Field Trips

   

Wilmington River Walk and Downtown

The city of Wilmington is going through a tremendous and interesting transition and a field trip has been  scheduled for Saturday, October 8th. This is a great opportunity to capture a blend of the old downtown historic district and the new more modern and contemporary buildings as they come along.

In the interest of time the focus will be around the River Walk and Front Street. However , if anyone wants to add a couple blocks and venture in to Second and Third street, then that will perfectly okay and definitely add to the opportunities. 

We will meet at Port City Java at 21 Front Street at 9:30 a.m. and plan for lunch around 12:30 at a riverfront restaurant.  Please let Mogens Hermansen know if you are interested in participating by email no later than October 1. His email address is  mxherma@aol.com

A flyer with information on the Wilmington trip and some sample photographs will be  displayed by clicking here.
