This is my father, TK Britt, burning the pond bank, painted from my 1989 pencil sketch. The pond was built by my father, grandfather, uncles, and others, and became a busy community gathering place for folks of all ages, on Sunday afternoons from around 1954 until about 1970. The bream fishing was very dependable.

This is at Federal Point, south of Fort Fisher, North Carolina. Look on the horizon for the sand dunes, which conceal the Atlantic Ocean beyond. The trees lean toward the land, as always, and on this day the grasses leaned toward the sea.
