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.
Delicate butterfly photo by Lori Bee after Hurricane Irma
It’s obvious this butterfly had a rough week. But I totally looked at it in amazement, thinking how strong that delicate creature really is, to have survived Irma.
We are all stronger than we think. Congrats on making it thru a rough week everyone and Happy Friday!
Happy 4th of July from Bee at the Beach!
Happy Independence Day! Let me know if I can help you or someone you know break free and live life at the beach! 843-505-3132
Lori Bee reflects on many treasured memories as she captures children enjoying beach playtime.
As an empty nester, I miss the days of ole, watching my children play on the beach. This moment watching another family visiting Hilton Head Island recently, brought back so many memories of years visiting here with my own family.
I did enjoy it then. And I treasure those memories even more now.
Photos of Pritchard Pocket Park and the Bluffton Covenant located on the banks of the May River, by Lori Bee.
I’ve lived in Bluffton 4 years and just this morning, finally explored ” Pritchard Pocket Park.” I’m so glad I did because the moment took my breath away. And I had no idea that Bluffton had its own Covenant. It so touched my heart. I will definitely be back.
Sweet dreams from Bluffton, South Carolina
“Winter Dip” photo by Lori Bee
So I’ve been a little slack of posting my photos on my actual blog. I have posted them here and there on my Facebook Business Page, but wanted to make sure I also documented them here.
This one was apparently so good that a local photographer tried to claim it as her own. LOL. I take it as a compliment, but I did indeed take this. She later relented, stating her software mistakenly flagged it as hers. Maybe I should start truly copyrighting them? Maybe even selling them? What do you think.
This was taken in late February at the Sea Pines Beach Club. I so enjoyed watching these carefree young ladies enjoying their “Winter Dip” in the Atlantic Ocean. Life on Hilton Head Island is so grand for our youth.
It’s been a beautiful spring so far and these azaleas just prove it. Meanwhile our neighbors to the north are enjoying snow. We are blessed here in the lowcountry!

Which January View is You?
Which view would you enjoy most on a 70 degree plus January day? The beach view from Hilton Head Island, or the May River view from the coastal village of Bluffton?
