Anthropomorphism is the recognition of people-like characteristics in animals, plants or non-living things. This tree can be found in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. During the time of slavery in the South, slave ships were often unable to make it through the Outer Banks because of the treacherous landscapes. From the looks of this picture, it seems as if they may have lost some passengers along the way.
Also, one of the islands of the Outer Banks is Ocracoke Island, where Blackbeard was killed. Another is Roanoke Island, home of the “Lost Colony.” Aaand another is Bodie Island, including Kill Devil Hills and the more commonly cited Kitty Hawk, where the Wright brothers flew.
Basically the Outer Banks are pretty cool for lots of reasons.
