Hunting Island, S Carolina 1875 Lighthouse

Hunting Island South Carolina is located in Beaufort County, 16 miles east of Historic Beaufort.  For Interstate 95 travelers it is between Savannah Georgia and Charleston South Carolina.

The beach is beautiful white sand and it a great time collecting shells.  The park has an entry fee and there is also a fee to go up in the lighthouse.

You will find restaurants and small shopping nearby along with the many historic sites in the Beaufort area.

Happy travels…I would put this down as a “must see”

Coastal Georgia small town living

Take a break from the I95 here’s a great get away with a chance to check out some late 1800 history. Parking is easy and the beautiful street scape with the lamp posts and sidewalks easily move you about. There are museums, thrift stores, restaurants and some old time buildings and homes throughout the city. […]

Friday the 13th…..It’s what you make of it

13th

 

Although I have never experienced anything unusual on this day it may be because I drift through the day with extreme caution.
My Grandma Rose was extremely superstitious, she believed every Friday and every 13th day was unlucky, so I had lots of practice never making any big decisions on these days.

If you have an Italian Grandma you probably know these do’s and don’ts

  •  drop a dish towel (unexpected company will come over)
  • go to bed between 11:55 pm and midnight (will have bad dreams)
  • buy a broom in May, (you’ll sweep someone away)
  • wash blankets in May (you’ll wash someone away)
  • go to the zoo or look at monkeys during pregnancy, (it will affect your baby’s behavior)
  • sneeze at the breakfast table (bad spirits will be with you all day)
  • carry a shovel thru the house (you’ll be digging someones grave)
  • walk under power lines that crossed (just plain unlucky)
  • seat 13 at a table (one will die within the year)
  • drink out of a cup with a crack (just unlucky)
  • wear red or purple to a funeral home (means you’ re happy they’re dead)
  • cross knives (you’ll get in a fight)
  • stir your coffee 2 or 4 times around not 3times (uneven numbers bring bad luck)
  • we could only live in houses with even street numbers,
  • use white sheets and pillow cases only (bring good spirits around)
  • no dirty dishes over night in the sink (unwanted company will be coming)
  • the foot of the bed could not face the door, (you’re on your way out)
  • never wear a hat in the house (going to a funeral)
  • if you enter the house through the front door had to leave through the front (or more people will keep coming)
  • sweep the house out every New Year’s Eve (get rid of the dirt)
  • buy a new broom every time we moved (don’t take the dirt with you)
  • move the furniture around in her house because we would change her good luck

Grandma lived happy and healthy until 85, and when we giggled about all this she would always say a few choice words in Italian and then say “someday you’ll miss me honey”
She called that right and I’ll admit I always wash my blankets in April.

#8 Buoy catches a wave during Irma…lands on Hilton Head Island beach

Locals and visitors are having a big time on Hilton Head Island’s Coligny Beach getting a first hand view of a Coast Guard buoy.

During hurricane Irma the buoy washed ashore and it is not an item that can easily be sent back to its home with a weight of 13,000 pounds. For anyone that ever questioned the strength of these hurricanes here’s the proof that they can take you for quite a ride.
