Gregg entertains hundreds for Memorial Day under the Old Oak Tree

Gregg Russell plays his guitar and sings folk and children’s songs to hundreds of young and old under one of the largest and oldest oak trees in Harbour Town, Sea Pines Plantation, Hilton Head Island. The Memorial Day concert has been free during the entire time of Gregg’s 26-year run. The youngest toddlers sit on the stage with Gregg, clapping their hands and singing some of their favorite songs, Memorial Day 2013.

Road Scholars on Tour on the Intracoastal Waterway

Group of Road Scholars on tour of the Intracoastal Waterway in Fort Lauderdale led by Lawyer/Historian Bill Crawford. To amplify voice and screen out boat noise, I wore a head set and a microphone while the ‘Scholars’ wore adjustable ear buds to increase/decrease sound as needed.

In the distance is the relatively recent E. Clay Shaw, Jr. Bridge, named in honor of the area’s longtime congressman who recently passed away. Clay was responsible for obtaining a significant amount of the funding needed for construction. Beyond the bridge lies Port Everglades, one of the busiest passenger cruise line ports on the Atlantic coast, opened in 1927. Courtesy, Claire M. Crawford.
