Sullivan's Island, South Carolina, USA

Sullivan's Island is just over three square miles in area with approximately 2000 residents.  That number swells quite a bit when the beach seasons are in full swing.

"Downtown" Sullivan's Island offers a half dozen or so restaurants on the main street.  I single out Taco Mamacita for a very specific reason..........

It is one of the very few restaurants anywhere I've ever been that offered a Vegan menu! And the food was great, too!

This is not the face of a Lego figure. Since the American Revolution in 1776 through World War II in 1947, Fort Moultrie has stood as part of America's seacoast defense. It is located on the south end of Sullivan's Island directly across the harbor from Ft. Sumter.

A view from the observation platform inside Ft. Moultrie looking toward the entrance to Charleston harbor.  The red arrow on the horizon at center-left is Ft. Sumter.  The American Civil War began at Ft. Sumter in 1861.

Today, Sullivan's Island has many beautiful and at least one very unusual home pictured above. The real estate website lists the value of all the beachfront homes on Sullivan's in the range of one to four million dollars.  This one is estimated at about three million.

Sunset shadows lengthen outside the Poe Public Library. Uniquely, the library is housed in a converted Spanish War era ammunition bunker.  The library is named for Edgar Allen Poe who served in the Army here in the 1820's. Many of his works of poetry reportedly draw on inspiration from his time on Sullivan's Island.
