When I was a child

In the 1950s there was an annual church service here and we went. Church followed by Dinner on the Grounds. My first experience of deviled eggs, yum!

Sheldon Panos

Sheldon isn't too far from Beaufort where my brother lives. I took some panoramic photos there a few years back, which are attached here. It is truly an enchanted setting, complete with ancient live oaks and Spanish moss.

Romantic Revival

Byron, Shelley or Keats would have found inspiration in such glorious ruins!
