Repair crews are on the scene. We do not have a reconnection time estimate, but will keep you posted as new information comes in.
On Wednesday, October 18 at 4:30 pm, we received word that there is an accident at Plowground and Bohicket. There is also construction in that area. Expect delays. Consider taking River Road as an alternative.

The Seabrook Island Club and the Kiawah-Seabrook Exchange Club will be holding its Sixth Annual Veteran’s Day charitable golf outing on Monday, November 6, 2017 to honor veterans who have served the country and raise money to support the Ralph Johnson Veteran’s Hospital and Fisher House.
The Town of Seabrook Island is responsible for the rules regarding dogs on our beaches. As a gentle reminder, dogs must be on leash above the high water line at all times. Below the high water mark, there is a designated area of 550 yards to the east of Boardwalk #1 where dogs may be off leash at any time of the day from November 1st through April 30th (green on the map). East of the designated off-leash area, no dogs – either on or off leash – are permitted at any time (red on the map). West of the designated area (yellow on the map), dogs may be off leash below the high water mark before 10am and after 5pm. Please note, there are bouys embedded in the sand at North Beach designating the area where dogs may be off leash.

Drayton Hall Distinguished Speakers Series: Robert Hunter
A Peculiar Look at the 18th-Century
Ceramics of Drayton Hall
Archaeological research at Drayton Hall has produced some of the most significant 18th-century ceramic artifacts yet discovered in America. Vestiges of Greek and Roman mythology, Chinese mysticism, and the courtly practices of European kings and queens are reflected in the broken fragments that have been left behind. This beautifully illustrated lecture will examine the deeper economic, social, and psychological meanings underlying these ceramics as used in the Drayton family’s drinking and dining rituals. In addition, the mysterious acquisition by Charles Drayton of an English facsimile of the famous “Barberini Vase” will be highlighted. The first century Roman cameo glass vase is considered by many to be the finest glass object in all of antiquity. Continue reading
