In the Low Country

“I stood face to face with the moon and the ocean and the future that spread out with all its bewildering immensity before me.” 
--Pat Conroy

We just returned from spending this past week with my brother and sister-in-law in the Low Country of South Carolina.  The sun shined every day, the skies radiated bright blue, the lush vegetation carpeted the landscape, and the waters rippled in and around the islands.  We boated to Daufuskie Island, the site of the school where Pat Conroy penned The Water is Wide.  A retired vet (as in veterinarian) piloted us through the marshes and lagoons surrounding Hilton Head, while my brother, the photographer, shot amazing film of birds in flight. We  rode bicycles, watched birds, climbed a lighthouse at dusk, and ate enough seafood to satisfy the hunger.  

It was a wonderful week, this first week of November.
