One of the many perks of being a member of the nonprofit Ogeechee Riverkeeper organization is their seasonal kayaking trips. Their August trip was a mellow six-mile paddle around Pigeon Island in the coastal area near Savannah, Georgia.
For lunch, we stopped at the Pin Point Heritage Museum in the restored buildings of the former A.S. Varn & Son oyster and crab factory. According to the museum’s website, “For nearly one hundred years, Pin Point was isolated and self sustained, a Gullah/Geechee enclave founded by first-generation freedmen where family, religion and work were deeply connected to the water.”
A professional video (in a beautifully air-conditioned room) brought the cohesive nature of the community to life.
