(7/9/2015)
Calendar Image

Words and Pictures (2014)
US, English

Roseland Theatre
48 Market Street
Onancock, VA 23417

A witty romantic comedy/drama, ‘Words and Pictures” stars the engaging duo of Juliette Binoche and Clive Owen working together on-screen for the first time. An Art instructor and an English teacher form a rivalry that ends up with a competition at their school in which students decide whether words or pictures are more important. This is a literate, grown-up comedy with something on its mind. Could you pick between literature and art as the finest form of expression? This is a love story that actually has something on its mind beyond romance.

Summer

Author Series

featuring two local authors

Lenore Hart and Rip Phillips


Cape Charles Memorial Library

201 Mason Avenue
Cape Charles, VA  23310

Each author will read excerpts from a latest book and then participate in a short question and answer segment.

Come join Eastern Shore's own Lenore Hart to hear her read excerpts from her novel Water Woman, which has received much acclaim. Reviews sum up the magic of this author as she creates a believable world where tragedy does not always equal hopelessness, a place where you don't always get what you want, but if you're strong, you find reasons to go on living anyway.

Cape Charles' own Rip Phillips will be reading from his book of poetry, Open Border. Please come join us to hear Rip!

Light refreshments will be available

Virginia's Seaside Water Trail

Virginia's 75-mile long Eastern Shore stands alone as the East Coast’s longest and last true coastal wilderness.

Through vast saltmarshes, back bays and barrier islands winds the Virginia Seaside Trail, some 100 miles of paddling routes stretching from Chincoteague to Fisherman’s island, replete with birds, marine life and the ghosts of this coasts’ colored past.

Join Burnham Guides as they explore the old haunts of hunters and presidents, birders and barrier island communities. Paddle all day and enjoy lodging at the finest small hotels in quaint villages at night. 

Our upcoming 5-day trip, July 21-25, will hit five of the best paddling routes from Chincoteague to Kiptopeke. This one is filling up fast, but we have plenty of other available dates through Fall.

As a special treat, we will paddle past the Eastern Shore's only two lighthouses, Assateague Lighthouse on the north end, and the Cape Charles Light on the south.

Join Burnham Guides, your expeditions specialists, to explore the wild side of the Eastern Shore this summer and fall. For even more adventure, check out our Hang Gliding Package!

Black Elvis as with any Elvis impersonator, there’s something about Clarence Giddens that doesn’t quite resemble The King. Some impersonators may be thinner, or sing off-key, and, some may even be women. But only Giddens is Black Elvis.

Wednesday, July 29: The Chincoteague Volunteer Fire Company’s annual Pony Penning always takes place on the last consecutive Wednesday and Thursday in the month of July.  The world famous Chincoteague Ponies swim from Assateague Island to ChincoteagueIsland (less than 1000 yards) on Wednesday at the first “slack tide”.  The first foal ashore is named King or Queen Neptune and is given away in a raffle later that day at the Carnival Grounds.  The Carnival opens immediately after the swim.  Proceeds from this event fund the Chincoteague Volunteer Fire Company.  Monies are used for maintenance and purchase of equipment and care of the pony herd.  A free shuttle runs the day of the swim to transport the 40,000 attendees to the swim site since parking is very limited to handicap only at Memorial Park.

Thursday, July 30: From 8:00 a.m. until noon an auction is held at the Carnival Grounds.   People begin arriving around 7:00 a.m. to get a front row seat.  The number of foals sold each year is determined by the Fire Company.  The ponies are checked and cleared by veterinarians before being released to their new owners.  Cash, Master Card, and Visa are accepted as payment. 

Friday, July 31: Adult ponies swim back to Assateague Island to live another year in the wild.
