Spring break is getting closer and closer, and this week’s featured page showcases another cool and educational place to visit over the break, the Port Royal Sound Foundation Maritime Center. I especially recommend a visit here if you have young ones, because they are going to LOVE the main exhibit room with the 3000 gallon aquarium and the awesome harks hanging from the ceiling. And did I mention the live critters they can visit up close? If you are heading to Paris Island or Beaufort, make sure to to plan some time for a stop here on the way.
This week’s Featured Page showcases another historical site on the island, the remains of the Steam Cannon completed in 1901. And if you have time, click around and visit other pages, especially the Critters, as there has been much added.
Notice the 3 main body parts: the prosoma (the front horseshoe shape), the opisthosoma (middle), and the telson (tail). People mistake the telson for a weapon, but it is actually used as a rudder for steering, and to help right itself if it gets flipped over. NEVER, never, never pick up a live horeseshoe crab by its telson.
I am featuring my pages related to places on the website until spring break, but I was working on my horseshoe crab page today and was so pleased with how it is shaping up that I wanted to share it. Have a look and tell me what you think? Is there anything you would like to see added? Or is it too much?
I am pleased to add a new feature to the website, called appropriately enough, the “Featured Page.” I am hard at work building those photo and information filled pages you can find in the drop down menus above. Each week I will feature a different page, and with Spring Break not (too) far away, I am going to feature “Places to Go” to maybe give you some inspiration for your next visit to the island. This week’s Featured Page, found at the top of the left sidebar, is the Baynard Mausoleum. Enjoy and happy planning for your next visit.
It’s actually kind of pretty if you don’t have to venture out in it.
We are having another snow day here in southwest Ohio. That makes the boy happy but leaves me truly missing the island and looking forward to spring break. But I’m not going to waste this day- I am hard at work on the site and this week (today hopefully) you will see the introduction of a weekly featured page. The pages can be found in the drop down menus at the top and detail all the things that make Hilton Head Island so perfect. Until then, happy snow day!!
