Have you ever seen the Will Smith/Matt Damon/Charlize Theron movie, “The Legend of Bagger Vance?” Well, even if you are not a golfer, I do highly recommend it. Did you know much of it was filmed right here in Bluffton? Actually, quite a bit of it was filmed in the gated golf community of Colleton River. The clubhouse is adorned with pictures of the filming and memorabilia.
A lot of people are surprised when I tell them it was filmed here. It really does showcase just how gorgeous this area truly is. It’s also a fabulous place to live. Here is a list of homes currently for sale in Colleton River. If I can help you make your dreams come true, just let me know. It would be my pleasure. My phone is 843-505-3132.
And just to give you a bit of a preview, yesterday I ventured out to the HE Trask Boat Landing in Bluffton and captured this sunrise view of the Clubhouse. Thought you might enjoy it. It’s even more spectacular in person. Wouldn’t it be just fabulous to wake up to every day. Let’s make that happen….
Had a busy morning work wise and also with taking a continuing education course. But I find there is nothing better to focus and energize me for the day, than taking a moment to breathe and enjoy the view. That’s especially important here in the lowcountry, as I realize that is why people want to mover here and buy real estate.
Having grown up in the mountains of North Central West Virginia, I know what a hard winter is like. It’s not just the extra cold weather and the snow, it’s also all the grey, sunless days that can wreak havoc on your soul.
So while it can get a bit chilly here in the Lowcountry during the winter, the days are full of sun and vivid colors. I love the gold Marsh Grass, the brilliant Carolina blue skies, the absolutely spectacular subsets, and the flowers that even bloom in the winter months. I hope you enjoy this photo of a couple of those flowers (hydrangea and camellia) from my own yard. They brighten my chilly days.
I had an appointment out on St. Helena Island this morning. I love visiting the Sea Islands of St. Helena, Harbor, Fripp and especially Hunting Island. It’s like something lures my soul out there to recharge. And that is what I did today, just soaking all that beauty and peacefulness in.
Here is a link to just a little bit of history in a recent article by Travel+Leisure Magazine, and below is a short video of my stops today. But I’d love to personally show you a life you would love on the Sea Islands of South Carolina. Just let me know where your soul is calling you to Bee at the Beach.
