Contrary to what one might think, most of us rarely go to the beach around here, even though we live so close. Life and work gets in the way, but somehow… we still feel the good vibrations of our beloved Atlantic mother in our souls.
I finally got a rare moment to celebrate another dear friend’s birthday with a visit to the ocean. I thought I’d take a moment to share a few pics this morning before I get back to work.
This is definitely the most peaceful time to visit Hilton Head Island. The beaches are empty other than a few locals walking or fishing. Total serenity that I soaked in before we get super busy with tourists and real estate. It was a fantastic way to renew my spirit and remind me why we are so blessed to live here.
Enjoy! And don’t forget to let me know how I can help you find your piece of paradise. 843.505.3132 or Lori@LoriBaden.com.
It’s no secret that Palmetto Bluff is MY personal favorite community in the lowcountry. I spent the afternoon with my dear friend, and fellow Realtor, Rochelle Ferguson with DR Horton Homes, talking about new construction in the area, while we did a walking photo tour around the bluff. Here are a few pictures. Each one will expand on as you click it.
And as always, if you’d like a list of available homes or your personal tour around Palmetto Bluff, feel free to call me at 843.505.3132 or email me at Lori@LoriBee.com .
This morning I spent a few hours giving back to something that gives me so much joy, our precious May River, and surrounding Bluffton. A guestimate of 150 volunteers or so, went by boat, by kayak and by foot, in and around our beloved May, and hit the surrounding streets picking up trash, to keep our river and town, clean.
It’s kind of dismaying that I picked up so much trash. Especially recyclables that can be re-utilized. But it also felt awesome, that I am a part of a community that gets together to make a difference.
Here are a few pictures from the event, the new Oyster Factory docks, and some things I noticed while walking around Bluffton, that I never seem to pay attention to when I’m driving.
Slow down a little. Admire our town. Take care of her and our May River. And please don’t litter. It’s just plain gross. Thanks!
So one of my favorite springtime rituals is to go to U Pick Daffodils Farm in Bluffton and pick daffodils and take pictures. It’s an absolutely beautiful place and the flowers are gorgeous. I do recommend wearing closed toe shoes of course, as it is a farm after all.
Well apparently they had a very busy weekend because I received this email this morning:
“Wow! What an amazingly busy day this has been. Hundreds of people have been out to visit us in the daffodil fields. So many in fact that we have sold out of all the blooms and most of the buds. This means we will have to be closed for the rest of the weekend and until some time next week. We’ll send a follow up email to let you know when we’ll be open again as soon as we have an idea. Thank you so much for your support and patience. See you soon!”
So I encourage you for now to go visit their website, find out their location, prices, and sign up for their email list so you’ll be the first to know, when the next round of beautiful blooms are ready! Take lots of pics and feel free to share on our Facebook page at Lowcountry Livin’.
So it’s been a bit since I blogged. I really do most of my blogging and picture uploading on my Facebook page at Lowcountry Livin’. And of course, my real estate site is at LoriBee.com. But I do need to be better at posting here too. I really do take quite a few pictures.
This picture is how I sold a house earlier this year. I call it “Selling the Low Country.” I took out a blanket , a bottle of wine, and told the prospective buyer to sit and wait for the sunset. Yeah… she bought. 😉
It’s not hard to sell life here. It is so beautiful but I love documenting it and sharing it with all of you.
That being said, I love someone sharing my posts and pictures…. but WITH credit. I know I’m not a professional photographer, but if I care enough to post the shot, it’s because I’m proud of it. I don’t like others using it for their own commercial purposes. I’m thinking I need to really start watermarking them. Another way to slow me down from posting…. but a las, if I want to protect my work, and my love of the beauty I document, I guess I must.
But be prepared to see a few more shots posted here. I’d love your thoughts and honest feedback on them. And what do you want to see about the lowcountry, perhaps, that I may not have yet shared…. Let’s take new adventures together.
And of course, let me know if I can help you with living your dream here. It would be my pleasure.
I’ve had a passion for the Lowcountry for over 25 years. I am now blessed to call this area home and am happy to share my love with all of you. Here is a video of some of my still shots from the past year. Enjoy and let me know how I can serve you! 843.505.3132
