He's Just Whistlin' Dixie ...


“I find my happiness where the sun shines.”
            ~ Author Unknown

This alligator is just whistlin’ dixie on the sunny side of the lagoon on an October afternoon in the Lowcountry of Beaufort County, South Carolina.

This autumn day was the first time I had the chance to photograph an alligator, and this one lazed in the sun for a very long time!

Good Morning Dixie ...



“Oh, I wish I was in the land of cotton
Old times they are not forgotten
Look away, look away, look away Dixieland
Oh I wish I was in Dixie, away, away

In Dixieland I take my stand to live and die in Dixie
For Dixieland, that’s where I was born
Early Lord one frosty morn
Look away, look away, look away Dixieland

Glory, glory hallelujah
Glory, glory hallelujah
Glory, glory hallelujah
His truth is marching on …”

                 ~ “An American Trilogy”
             ~ songwriters Don Reedman, Nick Patrick and Robin Smith
          ~ recorded by the great Elvis Presley
                                           ~ 1972

The peace of a beautiful southern fall morning floats along with the Colleton River in the Lowcountry of Beaufort County, South Carolina on a late October day in Dixie.
