I would imagine this space ship traveled to vertiginous heights.

For visitors to Hilton Head Island, Honey Horn Plantation and the Coastal Discovery Museum should be put on your “must-see” list of sites. It is a great mix of art, culture, nature, and a Camellia walk full of beautiful flowers.

  1. Hi Alice. Thanks for following my site. I’m doing some remodeling right now, so some things don’t work yet.

    Your post on the Atlas-5 debris caught my eye as I worked in aerospace for 20+ years. Always interested in things that fly. Part of that time was in Milledgeville at Triumph Aerospace as a contractor. Love the Southeast area.
