Epic! .....My family has DEEP roots in the South. Both my Mother and Grandmamma are named Dixie from the Low Country outside Charleston. We can't let the light of the South fade. So much of what I remember seems lost already as people come South with ridiculous notions about what the South means and who Southern people are. I'm half a Yankee, but I grew up every summer on Folly beach on the ocean in my Grandmomma's house and at summer bible school in a Southern Baptist Church. Spent my days barefoot surf fishing on the shore or fishing for catfish with a cane pole inland. Corn bread, black eyed peas, hush puppies and whatever fish and crabs we caught that day. We never set foot in a "seafood store" Best days of my life...
Forgive me, I am a yankee, Why is it called 'Low County', I can only guess it floods on occasion.
While attending ' Sub School' in New London Conn, I put in as one of my duty choices for a 'Boat' out of Charleston SC.
That was in 1960, when Charleston had a '
Sub Base'. I fell in love with the Charleston Architecture.
Well, you guess it, I rode a 'boat' out of New London Conn. for 5 years, guess that is the reason I don't know why it is called 'Low County'.
