Hot Town, Summer In The City ~ Wilmington, NC | New Jersey Photographer

Last Saturday was a HOT HOT HOT day in North Carolina but Chris and I ventured out anyway.  We drove to Wilmington, NC in my Dad’s Firebird with the T-tops off.

By the time we there we needed to find somewhere to cool off before we walked around the hot streets.

We chose this little Irish Pub right on the main street.  It was such a cool little pub with a charming atmosphere:  one bartender…a few bar stools…a juke box… and a countdown until St. Patrick’s Day electronically displayed up on the wall.

It was our second trip to Wilmington, North Carolina, where one of my favorite shows (One Tree Hill) is filmed.    Speaking of One Tree Hill…as we were walking down the street you see in the photo below we saw one of my favorite characters from the show, Bethany Joy Galeotti!  It took me a second to realize who she was after Chris almost bumped right into her and her companion.  I was too in shock to take out my camera and try to snap a photo of her before she headed into a store.  I just stood there like a star stuck little teenager. LOL!

If you watch One Tree Hill…the River Court is right across the water from this area.

We took a moment to cool off and enjoy a cold drink in front of the natural food market…

…and watched the hubbub on the busy sidewalk where we discovered a bloody independent horror film was being filmed!

I felt like paparazzi taking this one from down the street …lol!

This guy saw me and waved. :)

Below is a quick video I took with the D90 of one of the actors chatting with some people on the street about the movie:

We had a wonderful day!
