North Inlet Family Picnic-Love Lowcountry Living

We filled the boat up with STUFF,
made our way to North Inlet,
unloaded the boat,
caught crabs,
caught minnows,
the big fish got away,
cooked hamburgers,
enjoyed an adult beverage,
watched a beautiful sunset.

48 Wallace Pate Drive South-A Special Home in a Special Place

48 Wallace Pate Drive South, Georgetown, SC 29440
Situated on a 2 ½ acre homesite and between a picturesque lake and 16,000 acres of undeveloped land, this home is truly special. Upon entering you will see that the home was beautifully designed and is well maintained. There are antique heart pine floors throughout and an amazing wrap around screen porch. The great room is very comfortable with a fireplace, cathedral ceilings and skylights surrounding to give you an open feel with natural light. The gourmet kitchen has granite countertops, a Viking range and hood, a double oven, Sub-Zero refrigerator and a walk in pantry with a Sub-Zero freezer. There is a breakfast room off of the kitchen area. The spacious master bedroom has built in bookshelves, a sitting area, two walk in closets and a private screen porch. Two additional bedrooms and bathrooms on the main level share a second den and another private screen porch. Off of the three car garage is a bedroom/bonus room with a private bathroom. With an Envision geothermal heating/cooling system and halogen pin lighting, this house is very energy efficient. Views of the lake are fantastic throughout the house as well as from the wrap around porch and outdoor ‘kitchen’ and fireplace area. Great attention was paid to every detail inside and out of this home. It has so much to offer in an oceanfront, gated community. The onsite private DeBordieu Club offers amenities such as golf, tennis, and multiple dining options to DeBordieu Club members and guests. Natural amenities include miles of beach and tidal creeks, an on-site nature preserve with walking trails and bike paths, and a delightful year round climate.

DeBordieu Club: Golf Course Improvement Project

Jeff Kaz with the DeBordieu Club recently sent out this update. Get ready for some great golf!

Subject: DeBordieu Club: Golf Course Improvement Project

DeBordieu Club

Golf Course Improvement Project Update
August 15, 2014
Rain, Rain, Go Away…. At least for the next three weeks! The cooler temperatures and rain have significantly slowed down the progress of the Bermuda fairways. The ideal weather for the next three weeks is sunny with high temperatures of at least 95 degrees and little to no rainfall.
The course is still on target to open on September 13th. The tees and greens will be great. The enlarged teeing areas will give us more flexibility with tee locations. As with all new courses, the fairways are going to be in good shape when we open but will not reach full maturity until next summer.
Work is underway on the new tee complex on hole #11. This will bring the total yardage on hole #11 to 551 yards. While constructing the tee complex, drainage will be added to the lot. This addition will significantly reduce standing water in this area.
The removal of old sand in the bunkers is complete. The process of refilling the bunkers has started and should be complete in about two weeks. The bunkers will be filled with sand that meets or exceeds the USGA specifications. This new sand will provide a more consistent playing surface in all of the bunkers.

DeBordieu-White Heron Photographs Eating an Eel

I woke up and went to the beach for sunrise last week. It was beautiful.
Finding this white heron catching and eating breakfast made it an even better morning experience. 
I stopped to simply get a picture of the heron when it shot its head into the water capturing this eel. A valiant effort was made by the eel to escape, but the heron had its way enjoying a hardy morning breakfast. Wildlife experiences at DeBordieu are frequent occurrences.
