Chuck (Cubby) Pruitt Doran and I, Manuela stayed at the main house with owners Uncle Wallace and Aunt Shirley. We enjoyed visiting with them for two days and enjoyed visiting the island. They have a very clean beach and we enjoyed their fantastic breakfast. The soft crab sandwich was so good. We enjoyed visiting the museum and bought a few souvenirs, especially the wind chime made out of driftwood and old broken bottles. Our love to you, Uncle Wallace and Aunt Shirley. We will come again.
