Lowcountry Dreamin' On Such An Inner City Day

This is where my dear pals JoeBob and Annie live. JoeBob switches to just Joe when in the "da buhg suddy" (that's Gullah for "the big city") of Atlanta. Above is the view from their Lowcountry kitchen window. JoeBob says he can go for hours without a single car going by the house. On the other hand, the nearest place to hear live music is 45 minutes away, in Savannah. The nearest take-out is 20 minutes away. Life in the Lowcountry means learning to like your own cooking, little excitement, calming beauty all around, and being at one at being left to your own devices.
