Contents Water Festival Issue 2013


in the Lowcountry

Halloween is finally upon us. Time for little ones to pick out their costumes and empty their pillowcases and get ready to haul pounds of candy around the neighborhood. This is a great time of year, especially for children. It’s a time that reminds children of enchantment, imagination, and magic, things adults have long since forgotten. What better place to experience these ideas than Beaufort, a place where ghost stories are plentiful and some places seem possessed by something other-worldly. Even in the still, yet brisk fall evenings where a little chill is normal there seems to be an extra something in the air as Halloween approaches. Walking along in the dark autumn nights and feeling the crunch of the fallen dried brown leaves under your feet, each step you take feels a little more ominous this time of year for young and old alike. The Ghost stories of the area add a little more trepidation to what may ordinarily seem like nothing. One of the ghost stories of Beaufort County is the story of the Ghostly Lovers who walk the beach of Fripp Island. As the story goes a beautiful young girl from Charleston was kidnapped by Blackbeard himself and brought to his hideout on Fripp Island. When she refused his advances he had the young man she was betrothed to killed and had his severed hand brought to the young girl as evidence that her true love was gone forever. The fair maiden was so distraught she ran to the shore, threw herself into the water and drowned. Now her ghost and that of her lover can be seen on some nights walking arm in arm on a romantic stroll along Fripp Island’s shores. I don’t expect you’ll see any ghosts this Halloween, but whether you are taking the little ones trick-or-treating or going to a costume party, make this a safe and Happy Halloween!!

Town of Port Royal The town takes pride in its unique natural environment and its accessibility to that environment through its network of walking trails, community beach, boardwalk, and observation tower. Since Columbus discovered America in 1492, seven flags have flown over what is now the Town of Port Royal.

Appleton and in 1878 cost around $1000 to build. It is currently eligible for recognition in the National Register of Historic Places and is being renovated jointly by both the Town of Port Royal and the Historic Port Royal Foundation. These two groups plan to use the renovated building as a cultural and community center.
