I contemplated the dark waters below, hoping that, if I did go, I would at least miss the boat. High above, the osprey circled, then lit on a stump nearby. Well, one -worry gone. I could see myself with her talons clamped in my scalp. Finally, the top. The nest was just a jumble of thumb- size sticks. Peering over the edge as I swayed by, I spotted a large egg, and beside it, the ugliest little critter I've seen lately: all scraggly fuzz, oversize bill and myopic eyes, wobbling in some form of primeval response. The osprey child peered back at me, blinked and obviously thought I wasn't too handsome either, for it let out a disgusted peep and turned its back. I climbed down, satisfied. A spatter of rain passed over as we untied and shoved off. The osprey returned, inspected, seemed assured that all was well and settled down, proud of her produc- tion. We drifted back across the broad river. The osprey and the bald eagle, once a common sight over the coastal plains, then rated as endangered species, are in the best shape they've been in the past 25 years, for it was in the late '40's that the pesticide DDT was introduced in great quantities into the estuarine drainage. But its use has been declining steadily, and today there are at least two pairs of breeding bald eagles on the Carolinas coast, and a score and more of ospreys actively breeding. I am trying to teach an otter to catch fish. Don't laugh; I'm serious. Otter pups have to be taught to swim, catch fish and all that, a c c o r d i n g t o m y i n formation. Otto, the abandoned pup I found in my b a t h t u b and have been raising, from bottle to solid food, responds fast. The swimming was no problem, but he seems to think like some humans, that food comes from stores, and New Orleans: The Party City ·:**» novi WOIM.

OCEAN BLVD. 803-448-2301 IMYRTLE BEACfl 22m CHARLESTON, W.VA. By James I. Carnes They call New Orleans the city that care forgot. And anybody who has walked the s t r e e t s of the F r e n c h Quarter knows that's the truth. At dusk the streets are blocked to all motor vehicles and the Vieux Carre section is for walkers only. Merrymakers, drinks in hand, take over, and the party doesn't end until nearly dawn. New Orleans is not really a family city. It is a city for poet and painter, gourmet and collector, for music lovers and music makers. A n d , of course, for fun lovers. It is the city where jazz was born and continues to flourish and where good food and drink abound. Music is perhaps the first thing one thinks of in connection with New Orleans. Everyone knows jazz greats Al Hirt and Pete Fountain, both of whom own clubs in the French Quarter and play there anytime they're in town. Preservation Hall Is world-famous, as is the Jazz M u s e u m . There's also Economy Hall and countless little clubs which proclaim "Jazz Preserved Here." Most of them are open to the street so strollers can hear the music and sometimes see the band without being admitted. Art lovers will find New Orleans their city as well. One can browse for hours in shops and galleries which appear to be everywhere. And when you tire of that, you can walk to Jackson Square and find artists with easles set up on the sidewalk- and their wares displayed for sale. A specialty of. several of these artists is painting on pieces of slate from the old roof of the Pontalba, the oldest apartment building in the United States. One artist we spoke with--she signs her paintings "Babs"--explained that the Pontalba was built by plantation owners sr/they would have a place to stay when they came to town. Each room was decorated to suit its tenant. She went on to explain that the plantation owners also built a row of small houses on Canal Street f o r t h e i r m i s t r e s s e s ("Everybody had them, it seems.") but that these had recently been torn down. "What a pity," she mused, "they were so nice." The art and music are mere prelude to the food and drink, however. Fine restaurants abound in this city on the Mississippi. Antoines is perhaps the best "known. It was here that oysters Rockefeller was created. French and Creole cuisine dominate the menu and orders are to-be made in French. O t h e r e x c e l l e n t r e s - taurants are everywhere, and the cost is not so great as one might expect. Brennan's, for example, is considered THE place for breakfast in New Orleans. Eggs Benedict is perhaps the best bet there. Brennan's is also a great place for lunch. For less than $6. two can get, just for example, a delicious onion s o u p ^th m o u n d s of parmesan cheese, fried oysters and potato morsels, plus drink. AH meals are served with French bread that is broken at table. can't seem to connect earth, soil, cows and water with t h i n g s l i k e grain a n d vegetables, milk and fish. The milk came from a bottle, and now the fish comes from the deep freezer. I didn't mind until he began to require three or more pounds of fish a day. Now he takes fishing lessons: first we went to the shore with a fishing rod, but that was an error Despite his dexterity, he has trouble holding a rod. Next step: enter water, chase fish. This he does with glee, and comes up with bright, shining objects like pop tops from beer cans, chromed junk and broken glass. Somehow I haven't been able to convey to him that he is supposed to grab the fish with his teeth. And I find it very difficult to set an example. But, it is not unlikely that a passing boatman will see a mighty t h r a s h i n g , o b s e r v e a posterior poking above the s h a l l o w s a n d t h e n a mustachioed creature rising from the depths. It could be the otter, or it could be the otter's teacher. "Your Family Vacation Spot" TREASURE COVE MOTEL Rooms and Apis. Air Con.
