Fishing in Palmetto Dune Hilton Head Island

It is difficult to explain the kinds of joys in life that can come from calm moments, where the flow of time isn’t as overbearing as in day to day experience. To understand these sorts of moments, one has to really experience them for oneself.

The Joy of Fishing in Palmetto Dunes

Fishing in the lagoon systems of Palmetto Dunes is one satisfying way to do this. On the lagoon, there is a smooth interplay of the warm air offset by the occasional cool breeze that blows through the reed grass lining the banks of the lagoon. The wind blows over the water causing ripples drowned in the sun to glisten like cut diamonds.

The sea air mingles with the smell of the lush vegetation that permeates the area around the water. Everything seems smooth, and…

Hilton Head Island Beaches

I have lived near the Atlantic Ocean all my life.

The beaches I have walked can be found within the borders of every state from Maine to Florida and I have enjoyed them all. However, when I first set foot on the sandy shores of Hilton Head Island, South Carolina I knew I had found a magical place.

One day, after riding my bike from the beach at Sea Pines (semipublic) to Coligny Beach (public) and back, I was walking my bike off the beach when I was stopped by a couple walking onto the sand.

After they…

Celebrating Independence Day 2019—July Fourth

FOURTH OF JULY PARADE by Alfred Cornelius Howland

Fourth of July Parade by Alfred Cornelius Howland

Exhibited at the High Museum of Art—Atlanta, Georgia

After voting for independence on July 2, 1776, Congress turned its attention to the Declaration of Independence, a statement explaining this decision. The Declaration had been prepared by a Committee of Five, with Thomas Jefferson as its principal author.

Congress debated and revised the wording of the Declaration, finally approving it two days later on July 4.

A day earlier, John Adams had written to his wife Abigail:

“The second day of July 1776 will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as…
