Next time a sunrise steals your breath or a meadow of flowers leave you speechless, remain that way. Say nothing, and listen as Heaven whispers, do you like it? I did it just for you.
If you've never had the chance to watch the sun rise over the water, check out the hidden gem of Demetre Park, aka Sunrise Park on James Island. You can see the whole harbor from a bench. Regrann from @roofcdkayaker - Good morning! Here is a shot of the sun popping out of the clouds over a silhouette of Ft Sumter this morning from Demetre Park with a telephoto lens!
Hope everyone has a great and blessed Sunday!

One of the most common food items that could be found in the armies of both North and South during the Civil War was Hardtack. These square hand-sized biscuit crackers were tough and compact, thus the name, and were issued in massive quantities to soldiers on both sides, becoming a staple item of their diet. Made from only a few ingredients, the unleavened snack was light and did not crumble or spoil, making it optimal for use in long campaigns. Most soldiers did not prefer to eat it in its current state, so many would soften up the cracker in boiling liquids. From here they would turn it into a mushy dough and cook it into meals similar to pancakes or to sometimes what they called "pudding". Though not an enjoyable substance by any means, hardtack was still an essential part of the nutrition of frontline troops and gave them the energy they needed to perform long marches across the country.
Reynolds's Ridiculously Fun Tours went on its inaugural trip this afternoon, visiting two monumental sites throughout the Civil War. The first site visited was Fort Sumter which was the first military event of the long war. Students were able to see cannons, military soldiers, and even a submarine. The next place was Gettysburg Battlefield. They virtually walked through the cemetery and were able to see where Honest Abe gave his famous two minute speech among many other things.
Student reflections on the virtual field trip today... "OH MY GOD....this is so COOOOOL!" "Can we do this everyday?" "Someone left their water bottle at Fort Sumter!" "This does not look like a submarine.." ."I wish I could sit there." #agchater#powerof1#charter#charterschool#schoolchoice#school#education#pa#pennsylvania#chestercounty#chestercountypa#chesco#googleexpedition#fortsumter#gettysburgbattlefield
