220 Foot White Cloud Ship, Owner Update Information.

There is a rather large community out there that follows the ship, the White Cloud. (Pictured above). Everyone wants to know who the owner is and no one is able to easily trace this information. A name that pops up often is Gary A Wingert. Well Gary A Wingert does own a boat called the White Cloud which happens to be a 31.5ft sailboat, but he is not the owner of the 220ft White Cloud ship. The owner of the White Cloud appreciates their privacy and we should as well. Though it would be nice to know who owns her, everyone should respect the rights of the owner to remain anonymous.

On the other side of that coin is the thrill of the chase and the award of being the first to announce who the owner is and getting all the recognition for making that announcement. So in fairness to both sides, may the chase continue and may the owners remain private.

Gloucester County Fair Is Coming, August 12th to the 16th, 2009

The Gloucester County Fair is coming real soon. August 12th through the 16th. This is the slide show we created from last year's fair. It's also the slide show we kicked this site off with. Having attended this event for the past few years, we can say that each set up is a bit different from the previous year. Buying advanced tickets is a bargain compared to the ticket prices that need to be paid at the door. There is usually a very decent selection of food and drinks available for purchase so you should not have any issues finding something to eat and drink.

Exhibits abound by local artists and crafts folks. County information booths are usually represented around the fair as well to keep you up to date with local happenings. The official site for the fair has a lot of great information on it and we recommend you visit this page, especially if you want to include your works in the fair. Click Here to go to the main site.

Of course we will be there once again taking tons of photos and some video this time to include and let everyone remember the fun times they had, or missed. So pick a day and mark your calendar now for a date between the 12th and the 16th of August.

Gloucester Renaissance Festival, Extensive Slide Show

We shot over 11 gigs of material at the Gloucester Renaissance Festival the past weekend and here is just a small sampling of the photos. We still have a lot more to go through yet. It was a great weekend filled with a lot of wonderful people. We are working on a new site for the event for those of you who missed it and for those of you who were there and want to see more of it again.

The 100 ft ship, The Prestige Lady At Gloucester Marina

The 100ft ship, the Prestige Lady was in Gloucester last week. We had a chance to take some pictures of her and these are some of them. We have more that we will get on here soon. Beautiful boat. She was hit by a Casino Boat back in April of 2009 while docked in Texas as we did a bit of background checking on her. No fun, but she looks good now. The owners were very gracious to allow us to photograph her and post these pictures on line. The story of that along with the pictures are right HERE. (click the word - HERE).

Renaissance Festival At The Courthouse, One Day Left. Sunday, July 19th, 2009

One day left of the Renaissance Festival. Though not a large event, it is very well done and orchestrated. If you are wondering if it's worth your time, the answer is yes. We thought it might be a snoozer, but to our surprise, it's a great time. Lot's of fun for everyone in the family of all ages. The people doing the period interpretations are fantastic and a great deal of fun to talk to. Wonderful music and dance. You have to come out and see it.

Colonial Williamsburg Fife and Drums From July 4th, 2009

Starting at 8:15 PM prior to the fireworks in Colonial Williamsburg was the Fife and Drum corp playing on stage performing a 1 hour show. The show started with the Junior corp followed by the elite members of the senior corp and then the entire senior corp. At the end of the show, the fireworks began. This year was much better coordinated than previous years. We filmed all but two tunes due to having to change batteries and cards. We are working on hosting everything we captured as fast as we can process it. Here is one of the clips from that set.

This is the Junior corp on stage.

4th of July Fireworks From Colonial Williamsburg

Hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend. We went over to Colonial Williamsburg this year and they did a much better job than in previous years. The fireworks were the standard 15 minutes before the grand finale, but then they had a surprise for everyone. A second grand finale started after a few minutes. Quite the surprise. After that was over, there was a third grand finale. When you thought that was over, they just kept it up. We got the 3 grand finale's on video and have them here for you.
