Sales & Rentals Ocean Front Ocean Front REDUCED NEW LISTING 44 WBM july 2016 It happened nearly 62 years ago, but Nicky vividly remembers cutting the lumber the old-fashioned way, with a big crosscut saw. “We didn’t have any skill saws,” he says. “It was one on one end and one on the other. One would push and the other pull. And a drill was an old bit you would crank by hand.” Garland’s Fresh Seafood has stood ever since, ready to accept shrimp, blue crabs, grouper, flounder — the catch of the day, whatever’s in season. “We’ve been in business for 61 years,” Jackie says. “We’re the oldest business in the county.” Even though it has been around for six decades, locals might give you a blank look if you ask for Garland’s Fresh Seafood. They know it better as Honey’s Place. “Nicky’s daddy called everybody ‘honey,’ male or female,” Jackie says. “If you were a close friend, he called you ‘bee.’ That’s how Honey’s Place came to get its name.” While Garland was running the fish house, Nicky was out shrimping. After starting on the skiff with an outboard motor, he soon moved to bigger boats. He had three trawlers over the years. Like other shrimpers, he’d stay out for up to a week at a time in the spring, when shrimp are found in the shallow estuaries. When the weather warmed and the growing shrimp moved into the cooler, deeper water of Pamlico Sound, he’d joined the Brunswick County shrimpers following their migration north. It wasn’t an easy life. The work was hard; the weather, catch, and income uncertain. “Shrimp run in cycles,” Melton explains. “You can’t predict it. Storms might affect it. Everything weather-related will affect it. Water tempera-tures might kill them.” Despite the uncertainties, Nicky loved it. 800-279-6085 • 910-686-4400 • www.figure8island.com Figure eight island Judy B.
