sea shells as a decorative touch

One of the reasons I share photos is such that I will take the time to notice and appreciate the small things which are easy to overlook in one’s daily life. Today’s photo is a an example where sea shells were used as a landscaping decorative accent.

Notice that the house is elevated as most homes are on Seabrook Island. When a hurricane threatens the home owner will open the ground level shutters such that water can run under the house without causing damage.

This home can be found on Jenkins Point Road which will take one on a beautiful walk past lagoons, mash, and beautiful homes. Interestingly I crossed over a bridge and one side road was named Heather Island Lane, this lead me to assume this area was a separate island. However, when I consult Google Maps I find that the area is contagious with Seabrook Island however it has lots of inlets.
