Hope on Goat 2014


Hope on Goat, Goat Island, S.C.
I caught a boat for a short ride and stepped on Goat Island for the first time. Today was Hope on Goat, a benefit for Louie's Kids and the ticket included oysters, hot dogs, fish stew, music and a silent auction. What wasn't mentioned in the publicity was the delightful quirkiness of the place. My friend Josephine and I walked the length of the island grinning at all the fun signs and artsy odds and ends. We even found a few goats!
Louie's Kids is a tax-exempt, nonprofit organization that raises funds to help treat childhood obesity, which afflicts 25 million American children today. Louie's Kids works to find the best treatment options to meet the needs of each child. We find the fix that fits, one kid at a time.

    1. It was pretty sweet. Some of the houses are for vacation rentals but there are also permanent residents.

  4. When I first read the title of this post, I thought it said "Hop on Goat" - like Dr. Seuss' "Hop on Pop", only more rural.

    1. Ha! Good one :) I was pleased that I did track down the two remaining goats on the island.
