  1. We are definitely going to run into each other again as we keep going to the same places! I’m headed to Hilton Head in a week for a girlfriends getaway. I vaguely knew about the Gullah culture, but this article is really eye-opening and I’m going to make time to learn more while I am there. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Really interesting about this area. I certainly want to go when I'm there in a few weeks. What was the tour that you took? Sounds like a knowledgeable guide.

  3. We need to get acquainted. I'm a writer working on a novel about the founding of the Penn Center. Headed to Beaufort/Hilton Head next week to do some local Gullah research.
