    Default Season 310: Discovery and Exploration



    Hi folks!

    Last September, my beautiful bride and I visited the Outer Banks of North Carolina for the first time. We shot the video at some of the earthworks at Fort Raleigh, some of the few remnants of the Lost Colony, Sir Walter Raleigh's unsuccessful attempt in the late 1500s to establish a permanent English settlement in the New World.

    Not many miles away is Kitty Hawk, where the Wright Brothers 115 years ago completed the first powered flight.

    The area inspired me to use discovery and exploration as the theme for this season. This week, let's hear some songs about personal, professional, spiritual, geographic developments/findings/ventures/endeavors.

    I picked this week because it's my birthday week, so no more than five songs per Seasonista, please. I'm hitting one of those big round numbers, so I may have trouble keeping pace with y'all.

    The uke should be the centerpiece of your entries, but multi tracking, other instruments, collabs, etc., all welcome.

    As are original songs!

    Usual time limits apply.

    Please be kind and comment on others' videos.

    There will be prizes! A few trinkets I picked up at various tourist traps and visitor centers along the Outer Banks.

    Have a blast and come sail away with me!

    Great theme! Will be traveling next week and may be off the grid quite a bit. Hopefully, I can get something in. It promises to be a good one!
