Sample text

For years the coast of North Carolina had been a hotbed of piracy. Blackbeard made his headquarters in Pamlico Sound, while Major Stede Bonnet made his at Cape Fear. Bonnet, a wealthy French landowner from Barbados, turned to piracy simply for the adventure. He took to the high seas in a 10-gun sloop, the Revenge, in 1717 and began raiding merchant ships off the Virginia coast. His career was short. He was hanged in November 1718. Blackbeard also met his end on November 21, 1718, when a British warship under the command of Robert Maynard cornered him off the coast of Virginia and engaged his crew in a fierce battle that raged for several hours.

Savannah was captured by the British in 1778 and thus held until the close of hostilities. With that peace came prosperity as the city’s port traffic increased steadily with the growth of the plantation-based economy of tobacco and cotton. It was a good time for Savannah. In 1861, war came again to Savannah, this time in the form of the Civil War. Early on, Savannah was an important supply point for the Confederacy, but the fall of Fort Pulaski in 1862 closed the port to all sea traffic except for a few brave blockade-runners.

Snorkeling and diving are important and popular activities on the East Coast. Those who think they’re too old, or that diving is not the sport for them, and those who feel that it might be but can’t quite pluck up the courage to give it a try, should reconsider – it’s never too late, it’s easy, and you’re missing the experience of a lifetime. Almost every city in the United States has at least one outdoor adventure company that will teach you the sport quickly, usually in comfort at the local YMCA or YWCA, and at reasonable cost.
