Daufuskie Island Pages

Just working through a few photos from last year's vacation.  We took a side trip to Daufuskie Island via ferry from Hilton Head.  I get terribly seasick so this is a very rare thing to see me on a boat - even a ferry on a sound is a challenge.  I did love the ride and spotting dolphins.

However, the golf cart ride was almost worse than any boat trip.  Yet, despite the horribly rutted roads, the lack of signage so we missed at least half the sites, and the lack of interest in the rest of the sites, we really did have fun and laughed a lot.  We found a completely deserted beach.  Lenny thought my getting chased out of a gallery by a poodle was hilarious.  In my defense, it was a full size poodle - not the toy kind.  And how do you know it is a poodle just by the bark?  And it was their house not their gallery, but how am I to know?  Lack of signage, remember.  It matched the photo on the brochure.

I thought it was funny that Lenny was sure we had found this pottery place by the 'kiln' in front of the house.  It was actually a still - or so the owner said.  I think he was serious.  (There is only one store with very limited provisions on the island.)  The scenery is pretty and it is worth going - once.

Jounaling is tucked behind the photo collage on this page. 

Chocolate Chip lettering was too dark for this page, so I recut the letters and glued them over the originals.  It created a nice accidental effect.
