Shrimp Boats

Shem Creek Boats for SCIWAY

These are shrimp boats that deliver daily fresh seafood directly to the docks of the restaurants along Shem Creek, Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina. This photo has recently been published on SCIWAY (South Carolina’s Information Highway).

Photographic Journal: Waiting for the August Moon to Rise

At Shem Creek Park waiting for the autumn moon to rise.

Shem Creek Park is located in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina. It is a new public park with a long board walk extending far out into the marsh to the mouth of the creek. The creek is bordered by seafood restaurants on both sides.

Shrimp boats deliver their fresh catch straight from the ocean to the restaurants. And where there are shrimp boats, there are always lots of sea birds, especially pelicans and seagulls, and dolphins.

At the end of the day, when the shrimp boats have retired for the night, the creek comes alive with after-hour activities of recreational boating, fishing, strolling along the boardwalk, and sunset watching.

Photographic Journal: Just Another Tribute to the Full Moon

Shem Creek Park 084_3No matter where we are, tonight we all seem to be adoring the same thing: the beautiful February full moon. WordPress is flooded with posts showing glimpses of the moon by bloggers from all over the world.

Doesn’t our mysterious moon with its warm, golden light evoke a feeling of awe and a longing for surrendering to peace in us?  By sharing and adoring the same moon that sustains us all, aren’t we reminded that we are all fundamentally the same and closely tied together?  We don’t even have to look as far as the moon to come to that conclusion. What about our wonderful, bountiful, and generous earth?

With this photo I’d like to share with you my glimpse of our full moon as I have seen it over the Atlantic ocean, with Charleston shrimp boats underneath that have retired for the night after delivering fresh prawns directly to the local restaurants all day.

Love and peace tonight and always!
