You can only reach Daufuskie Island, South Carolina, by boat. We rode the new ferry, The Delta Lady , over to Daufuskie this past Memorial Day. Even though we are just a mile from the tourist-choked Hilton Head … there is a single paved road on Daufuskie. Only residents, approximately 400, can drive cars on the island. The Delta Lady escorted us to the island’s 5,200 hundred acres, Daufuskie-ites take extreme pride in resisting any development. During the ferry ride I read how far back the island’s history goes back … long before the Revolutionary War. We drove on dirt roads passing rustic Gullah shacks, the Silver Dew Winery and the school where Pat Conroy taught. Conroy’s book The Water Is Wide revolves around Daufuskie, which Conroy referred to as “Yamacraw Island” in his novel. Bald eagles live on Daufuskie. We visited the oldest building on the island: The First Union Baptist Church, which is still used as a place of worship. Just Chase’s inimitable metal sculptures are worth a trip to Daufuskie. Unfortunately, the Daufuskie Rum Company was closed today. We ate at the Old Daufuskie Crab Company , where I met the owner’s son, Doc Scurry.
Visitors to Buenos Aires invariably fall in love with it and want to stay forever, but locals would rather be in Spain, Italy, or anywhere else. At least so say the lyrics of the song “ Puerto Madero ,” written in Spanglish by half Argentine, half American musician Kevin Johansen, about one of the city’s shiniest neighborhoods. It is surprisingly easy to slip into daily life in. Buenos Aires’s food scene is essentially divided into two camps. In one you’ll find time-warp cafés and no-frills parrillas (steakhouses), most of which serve up the same dishes: steak of varying cuts, potato fries, slightly overcooked pasta, juicy empanadas, and simple salads. Buenos Aires lives to party. When the clock strikes midnight, you’ll spot older diners mulling dessert options and young children running around full of pep.
