Byways and highways in the low country of South Carolina are rural and rustic.

Here's a do-it-your-selfer with a combo boat.
The hull is from a sailbaot.
The top deck  is salvaged from a  motorboat.
The middle is a houseboat.
This takes messing about in  boats to whole new level.
Seaworthy?
Um... probably, as long as the wind and waves are very calm.

Beach side campground.
No electricity. Just nature.
The dunes and sea oats separate the camp from the ocean.

This driftwood was wrapped around the steel beam.
The rust infused itself into the wood.

This tree stopped me up short.
It spoke to me.
It seemed like a natural metaphor for my life.
From big and strong to sawed off short...
But making an optimistic comeback.
