Orchid  Island
By DorothyE. Miller

    A heavy fog swirled out of the northwest and over Orchid Island, wrapping it in a drenched blanket of dirty gray, and trees dripped with a steady monotony from their branches and waved onto the sodden ground.  
      In Harbor's Restaurant the lights were bright and the room was filled with the teasing scent of hot bread, coffee, fried ham, beans and rice. The man and three girls at the long table bent their heads over steaming mugs full with beans and rice.Elizabeth was the owner of Harbor restaurant. Elizabeth, turned to glance at the girls. The men came from London, England, to work. One man working to get married. The girls work
their way through school. The River Boat was large and featured dining, dancing, and folks playing in the casino.
       The River Boat stopped at Harbor Restaurant on Orchid Island for the passengers to have dinner. The River Boat left from Paradise Island, Bahamas, the city of Atlantis cruising with the silvery River. It was so Beautiful;there were orchids on every tree along the river to orchid island. The scenes were lovely when the sun was setting.
