"Home Is Where The Heart Is"

We came to Lanark Beach which is a section of Lanark Village which are both located on St. James Island, in April of 1994 to live. We stayed at HoHum RV Park http://www.hohumrvpark.com/ just across and down the road from us. We moved here to this house in August 1998. This is now August 16, 2007. It has been a dry summer so I have tried to water to save the plants but not the grass because it takes to much water. That is part of the reason for the new mulch I have put down....

It's just a short hop to the beach! I had a new privacy fence put in on two sides of the yard because we live on a corner lot and now on 9/21/2009 had a carport put in. It was put in by Carolina Carports Inc. http://www.carolinacarportsinc.com/Home.html The crew did a really great job installing it and I thank them all for all of their hard work out here in the heat they had to work in.

These were taken in the dark. There was this big burnt out bug zapper under the house so I took the bottom off of it and between the two layers of wire mesh I wound a rope light, for a light on the deck.
