Daufuskie Island, SC
Daufuskie Island is a residential sea island between Savannah, Georgia and Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. It has a full-time population of around 429 and is home to two resorts.
The island's recorded history traces back to Pre Revolutionary War times. The island was home to a sizable population of Gullah inhabitants from the end of the Civil War until very recently. Gullah are the descendants of freed slaves. The 1972 Pat Conroy book The Water is Wide was set on Daufuskie, fictionalized as "Yamacraw Island." The book recounts Mr. Conroy's experiences teaching on the island in the 1960's, when the Gullah lifestyle of living off the crabs and oysters in the Calibogue Sound was threatened by industrial waste.
The island is now split into five parts.

As my son's baseball season comes to an end, I wanted to post a shot of him pitching from this year.

MOVIN' THE HOUSE
Today was the day that the old Hinton house/Blessings Cottage was moved. This old house was built by a Hinton several generations ago and is still owned by the family. After only a few glitches, they got the house moved to it's new location a few hundered yards away. The move drew quite a crowd: Hinton family members, Blessings Cottage owners & friends, and lots of passers-by that just stopped to see what was goin' on.
We experienced history today in Dacula, GA.

"All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another."

Took this shot last week when my son had a rained out baseball game, as I sat in the car looking at the drenched field.
Well, it happened again tonight. We made a 3 hour round trip in the car for nothing, as the game was rained out!
Midst all the complaining (the hassle of driving all the way down and back for nothing) - I later had to stop and give thanks for the rain. We need it so badly!
Thank you God for the rain!
“God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.”
