  1. The Gullah’s have their own Blog. When living in Beaufort 65/66 the ladies frequented our neighborhood with fruits and veggies to sell. The wares were carried on their head with a platform type hat. We remember the woman who came through our neighborhood and we have referred to her on many occasion. She would never come into our home to enjoy a bit of AC, but welcomed a glass of Lemonade. So many reminders from your Blog on the Low Country
