SCETV shoot for "Carolina Stories, Ghosts & Legends III"

Eric had a very special opportunity to work with South Carolina ETV as a consultant and performer in Carolina Stories, Ghosts & Legends III.  Eric's segments feature

Stede Bonnet's Execution and the Legend of the Bouquet, the Pirate Ghost Guarding Treasure, Richard Whorley, and restless pirate spirits!

Special thanks to John Laverne of Bulldog Tours, and our cast (clockwise from bottom left: Ariel Lavender, Eric Lavender, Lindsay Hoover, Stephen Beard, Alan Stello, Rodney Rogers, Gary Dowd)
