South Carolina

Here’s a couple of photos I took while in Beaufort and Parris Island…

Family Day - Parris Island 104.jpg

That first one is just a tree (duh) full of Spanish Moss right outside the All Weather Training Facility on Parris Island.

Family Day - Parris Island 237.jpgThis was shot while leaving Parris Island on Thursday. Quite a bit of the area around the barrier islands in South Carolina is marsh and swamp. Looks like there was some kind of picnic area. If I had not been on such a tight schedule (and with kids) I would have stopped at several of these and taken a bunch more photographs.

  • It can be. Even though spanish moss isn’t a parasite in the normal sense of the word it does block out sunlight and if you have a large enough colony then the tree won’t get as much sunlight as it could. If you look at pictures of trees with spanish moss growing on them you will notice that there are rarely leaves growing in the area of the moss. Mainly it just slows their growth rates and of course it will increase the wind resistance which is bad seaside because of hurricanes.

  • Can anyone get the information out that John Allen Wright did not commit this murder.  He watched a police officer shoot and kill an unarmed man in cold blood.  The police kept this man locked away in jail for three years to keep him quite, while they figured how to cover up another senseless shooting committed by an Atlanta Police Officer who did not follow proper procedures.  The real truth is a police officer shot and killed and innocent unarmed man in cold blood and all they could tell this man’s mother, is we are sorry proper procedures were not followed.
