These signs went up recently and the message is interesting; “shorebird migration and winter habitat .. no dogs .. do not enter”.

Following is an article, from Seabrook Island Birders, which ask that we Respect Seabrook Island shorebirds & habitat. Also, a link has been included for today’s photo saved on Flickr with the caption Area closed on Seabrook Island beach in South Carolina.

theme day (photo of the year)

It is the first of the month and the City Daily Photo community theme is “photo of the year”. This year I am sharing a photo from my iPhone favorites because I feel it reflects the most important thing I did in 2020. With this photo I wish to share a positive outlook for the future and a happy new year to all.

Please visit other bloggers who are participating in the January theme day.

gone fishing

Sorry I am posting less frequently. I wish it was because I had gone fishing but no we are busy moving. As mentioned previously where we live is complicated and now we have decided to move back into our condo in Charlotte. However, we plan to continue to spend time at Seabrook as well. Once things settle down I’ll start posting regularly.

blue chairs

Seabrook Island includes community garden plots. Today’s photo shows plot 14 which is an impressive setup. In addition to raised garden beds made from really nice wood, they also have deck and chairs. To watch the green things grow.

sand

My wife asked for a sandy beach photo she can use as a print for a coffee table tray. I took several but none were just right. The most challenging request was to have the photo be mostly sand and only a little water or sky. While trying to satisfy her request I realized the horizon was what allowed my camera to auto focus. I need to study my camera settings to see what sort of autofocus options exist. I’m not interesting in manual focus but I am interested to see if I can shift the focus point from the center of frame to different locations.

My research will start with the manuals for the Sony DSLR-A100. Also, a link has been included for today’s photo saved on Flickr with the caption A beach scene on Seabrook Island in South Carolina.

standing water

The day after a gale the sun came out however there was some standing water. The streets drained well however, as the photo shows, some parking lots did not drain as well. This photo is of the High Hammock Villas a short distance from the villas where we are staying.

gale warning

This scene was photographed last weekend when we were under a gale warning. I intentionally included the 2020 sign because the clouds were ominous as is our year.

The gale arrived with 30 mile an hour winds and lots of rain. However there was no damage and the sun was shining the next day.

in our price range

This post should have been called the home we missed. It was in our price range but we did not move quickly enough. Before the pandemic resort property moved slowly however during the pandemic resort homes do not stay on the market long.

This specific home has a golf course view and has lots of windows. Even though the house is being sold “as is” there was a contingent sale within one week of going on the market.

Following is an article about Home Prices and Housing Market Predictions for 2021. Also, a link has been included for today’s photo saved on Flickr with the caption A home, in our price range, found on Seabrook Island in South Carolina.

a dream

This photo shows my dream but it is out of my reach. I would love to buy an island home and an RV van. Maybe the dream says I have not made my mind up.

I would like to relax and enjoy the island life and I would like to travel. This photo shows that both are possible.
