McClellanville, South Carolina


Below are some scenes from the tiny town of  McClellanville, South Carolina.

Incidentally the movie "Sophie and the Rising Sun" based on the book by the same name, was filmed there recently. You can read more about that at the Southeast Film Guide.

 The ubiquitous shrimp boat, same style in use for more than a century.
 A handsome church with moss on the northern roof.
 Many homes are built up high on stilts in case of flooding.
 Magnificent ancient live oaks with drippy Spanish moss dwarf many houses and are prevalent throughout the small town.
 Another home on stilts with a dozen doors opening to the veranda.
They just don't build them like this anymore.

Thank you for stopping by. 
We woke up alive and life is goof!

  1. You are making me homesick for South Carolina. My ancestors came from Dublin Ireland in the early 1700's to Charleston and then settled all around the south. I miss the fragrance of the warm summer nights. The air is filled with the blend of camellias, magnolias, jasmine and honeysuckle -- nature's aromatherapy. Enjoy!
