On arriving, on Seabrook Island, you are greeted with streets lined with live oak trees and beautiful homes. Historically Southern Live Oak have been used in ship building, “specifically used to make curved structural members of the hull”.
The sign says “Pirates Conquest”. This house sits one block from the beach with easy access via a boardwalk. Notice that the house is elevated with shutters which can be opened on the ground level when a hurricane threatens.
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.
Today’s photo was taken because the blue roof caught my attention. The palm trees and foot bridge are a nice touch as well.
Homes on Seabrook range from villas, cottages, townhomes, single family homes, homes on the beach, on the marsh, and on beautifully streets lined with live oaks. Views range from lagoons, marsh, tennis courts, golf courses, and the beach.
