We've been to Daufuskie Island two times now thanks to great friends. I am in love. Went in May weather was great. Went fishing and taught my girlfriend Wanda to crab...hilarious..she dropped the first chicken drumstick in the water and the biggest crab grabbed it and ran away. He'll never be hungry again! We still caught a cooler full, then we cooked em and cleaned em and my husband made crabcakes..best ever same day crab cakes. Long walks on a nearly deserted beach. Hard rain with frogs croaking so loudly I could barely hear Hunter playing his guitar. No cars, hardly any cell service...riding around in golf carts. carting to Freeport Marina for burgers and music..where boaters from Bluffton gather when they are not on the sandbar. Horse back riding on the beach (not me..other people).
Where Pat Conroy taught school just out of The Citadel and wrote a memoir "The River is Wide" (which it is really)...a world apart from Bluffton or HIlton Head or Palmetto Dunes. Magnificently run down and peaceful.
