The Bay Point Island Foundation: Dedicated to preservation, conservation, and education of the natural preserve

Accessible by boat, Bay Point Island is a privately owned barrier island located northeast of Hilton Head Island at the mouth of the Port Royal Sound. The island encompasses approximately 1,400 acres of marshland, maritime forest, beaches and sand dunes, a square footage larger than Central Park in New York City. A micro community of environmentalists, the island’s owners established the Bay Point Island Foundation in 2019 after decades of beach cleanups, shorebird protection, and working with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources on its sea turtle program.

Over Yonder and Back Again: My life in Southern cities

Over Yonder and Back Again: My life in Southern cities

Growing up, my immediate family did not seem overwhelmingly Southern. We were Catholic, after all, and we never cooked traditional Southern food at home, preferring Lebanese, our ethnic cuisine. We also did not plant window boxes full of flowers or sit on the porch at twilight, drinking sweet tea with lemon slices. Being young and unaware for the most part about what “Southern” even meant, I had to rely on the stereotypes I gleaned from pop culture—that is, until the day I left South Carolina and lived in a few other cities in the South.

Summer has arrived! Grab the sunscreen, hit the beach, light up the BBQ grill, fill the cooler, or hop on your bike—all things we do to celebrate the days of summer without even thinking.

On Course to Live the Dream: After a decorated junior and collegiate career, Bluffton’s Bryson Nimmer is scoring wins en route to PGA stardom

Even when you’re a first-team All-American and ACC Player of the Year and have a family name synonymous with success like Bryson Nimmer, there is no magical fast pass to PGA Tour fame. To earn stardom among thousands of wannabe legends, the 23-year-old Bluffton native knows he must first surrender to the process—one to two years on development tours (the PGA’s minor leagues), constant travel, and Monday PGA Tour qualifier pressure cookers, fighting for a big-league tee time in tourney fields full of teen phenoms and 50-year-old former stars.
