I am a child of the South. I spent my early years exploring nature, climbing trees, and playing around streams and lakes. My teenage years found me exploring the creeks and marshes of the South Carolina coast. It is a fascination I hold to this day. You can’t help but be awed by majestic live oaks spreading out over a saltwater creek or a live oak road from the past. Think of the history they have witnessed or the tides that have passed under their branches.
