I love fall. But especially here in Bluffton. It’s magical. Hard to describe but I try via my photos and video. They speak for our quaint little community, better than I ever could.
Hope you enjoy this little video I made from our Bluffton Arts & Seafood celebration yesterday.
And if you or someone you know would like to live in such a wonderful place, please let me know. Happy to share this magical place with you!
Delicate butterfly photo by Lori Bee after Hurricane Irma
It’s obvious this butterfly had a rough week. But I totally looked at it in amazement, thinking how strong that delicate creature really is, to have survived Irma.
We are all stronger than we think. Congrats on making it thru a rough week everyone and Happy Friday!
Brief video and photos of Hunting Island and St. Helena Island, just outside of Beaufort, SC by Lori Bee.
I had an appointment out on St. Helena Island this morning. I love visiting the Sea Islands of St. Helena, Harbor, Fripp and especially Hunting Island. It’s like something lures my soul out there to recharge. And that is what I did today, just soaking all that beauty and peacefulness in.
Here is a link to just a little bit of history in a recent article by Travel+Leisure Magazine, and below is a short video of my stops today. But I’d love to personally show you a life you would love on the Sea Islands of South Carolina. Just let me know where your soul is calling you to Bee at the Beach.

Happy 4th of July from Bee at the Beach!
Happy Independence Day! Let me know if I can help you or someone you know break free and live life at the beach! 843-505-3132
Lori Bee reflects on many treasured memories as she captures children enjoying beach playtime.
As an empty nester, I miss the days of ole, watching my children play on the beach. This moment watching another family visiting Hilton Head Island recently, brought back so many memories of years visiting here with my own family.
I did enjoy it then. And I treasure those memories even more now.

Looks like pure happiness for the next couple of hours to me! 😀
Photos of Pritchard Pocket Park and the Bluffton Covenant located on the banks of the May River, by Lori Bee.
I’ve lived in Bluffton 4 years and just this morning, finally explored ” Pritchard Pocket Park.” I’m so glad I did because the moment took my breath away. And I had no idea that Bluffton had its own Covenant. It so touched my heart. I will definitely be back.
Lori Bee shares her Marker 13 Sunset photo from Skull Creek Boathouse, Hilton Head Island, taken on Mother’s Day, 2017.
Lori Bee explores the gravesite of Thomas Heyward, signer of the Declaration of Independence, and discovers an unusual expression.
I love history. And there is lots of it here in Beaufort and Jasper County.
Thankfully, my boyfriend Joe knows this and noted several comments made over the last few years about wanting to stop at the gravesite of Thomas Heyward, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence AND The Articles of Confederation.
While the little historical marker out on Route 462 is quaint, I have never once noted a vehicle traversing the long sandy drive to wherever his final resting place might be. While my inquisitiveness wanted me to explore, I know enough about the rural south to know that might not be a good idea alone. A few days ago, my brave man (who conceal carries) asked me if I wanted to explore. I jumped at the chance.
Not much remains of the Old Plantation. There is a sign indicating approximately where the house stood overlooking the Broad River. And the actual walled cemetery where Thomas Heyward and many of his descendants, including many young children who died at birth or infancy. It is a serene sight with the tall mossy live oaks lining the driveway and overlooking the river, that the tourist websites promote. In spite of the nearby trailer and shanties nearby.
But there was something else that took me aback …. It was this….
Yeah… he has a SMIRK on his face. LOL! None of the other photos I’ve seen online document this. As an avid fan of the defunct show, “Lie to Me,” I know a few things about facial expressions. Supposedly, looking up and to the left like this indicates honesty. So I presume Mr. Heyward wanted us to believe he was honest.
But that pursed lip… What indeed was that indicative of? Disapproval? Control? Witholding opinion? Lying? I don’t know but I can’t help but think about this eternal bust of a man that helped found this country. What indeed is he thinking? What do you think he is trying to tell us?
I’d love to hear your thoughts….
