Just Another Day In Oriental
Pirates, music, a wedding, life
September 5, 2022

n the water, by the pier, or walking down the street – a lot can happen in Oriental in one day.

Saturday, September 4 was the annual Pirate Jam – an on-the-water concert of Teach’s Point. There was also a wedding in town and an Artists’ Reception.

A lot goes on down by the river near sunset. ‘The River Rats’ hang out and have an open chair for anyone who walks by.

Between these events, there were the usual happenings in an Oriental day: boating, fishing, people enjoying the water and the parks. TownDock’s photographer caught just a few things that can happen in a day in Oriental.
