Visiting Puddy in Palmetto Bluff
How lucky am I to have a sister who lives in Palmetto Bluff?!?!
My sister Puddy and I have a code for gift giving, if we want to hint to the other about the gift we are going to give the other, we say "it's a one for you, one for me". This obviously means, "I liked it so much, I bought myself one too." (Those are usually the best kinds of gifts!) (And our favorite kind to buy!)
Many, many decades ago we started using another phrase. While divvying up some family treasures our darling (and only child) father suggested his daughters share the last few left over odds and end pieces of jewelry. He used the plural "your" to describe things the sisters would share. (We have actually done a very good job of this hilariously ridiculous task.) That also was the birth of our code word "our". This is the possessive "our". This is a "I like what you have so much, I'm your sister, so it belongs to both of us." Although my sister didn't build me a house in Palmetto Bluff as well (not a "One for you and one for me"!), I am going to declare it an "our". "Our" Palmetto Bluff. "Our" everything in Palmetto Bluff....house, dog, zippy golf cart, etc. Good Idea! Right?! Only problem is I also have a brother and nieces and nephews declaring "our" on my guest room!
Set along the May River, between Hilton Head and Savannah, Palmetto Bluff is a 20,000 gated Low Country community in Bluffton, South Carolina. The setting is movie set gorgeous, with it's drooping Spanish Moss and glorious Low Country architecture. The cornerstones of life in Palmetto Bluff are Low Country Culture, Nature and Conservation, Community and Connection, and Outdoor Pursuits. My favorite three activities are oogling the gorgeous homes, eating all the awesome Low Country food, and hacking my way around the Jack Nicholas signature golf course with beloved brother-in-law Phil.
