From Our Readers: Bluebirds and Belhaven


This is Carolina Country across the field in our backyard. The bluebird is keeping an eye on her nest that is close to her. The black cow is a nice contrast with the yellow grass.

Music for disabled vets

I was born and raised in western North Carolina. I love your magazine for how it inspires and promotes self-confidence for people like myself. 

I am honored to serve as an ambassador for Disabled American Veterans. I use my talents as a country music artist to encourage young people to be involved with our veterans. My mission is to bring awareness to the needs of disabled veterans and their families. Our brave men and women who gave even more are still feeling the aftermath of war.

We can all make a difference in people’s lives, even if it’s one person at a time.

Bernstein Belhaven docks

The Belhaven docks

My husband and I have sailed together for almost 40 years. He retired a short time ago, and we set out for a three-week trip from New Bern to the Albemarle Sound Loop. On our way back we docked at the public docks in Belhaven. This photo was taken at sunset.
