Oyster Roast at Tombee Plantation

This year's annual oyster roast to benefit the historic foundation was held at Tombee Plantation, c. 1795.

The marsh

The beauty of the lowcountry

Lowcountry bluegrass

All the oysers you could eat!

Front parlor-all of the woodwork is original.

Talk about a fridge!

Beautiful farm sink and brick backsplash

A kitchen I could cook in!

The evening surrounds the house as the sun goes down for the night.

Antique chandelier in the upstairs hall.

Garden fountain detail.

Tombee gardens beneath the night sky.

Oysters roasted, wine poured, and music drifted beneath a star studded Lowcountry sky. Cool temperatures made the steam rise from the freshly cooked oysters on time-worn wooden tables. Live oak trees laden with lacey Spanish moss stood watch over the marshes setting the stage for an historic 18th century treasure known as Tombee Plantation.

What a beautiful place ~ I do really love old places.

Your chair in your header is just lovely also. Looks like you would want to sit with a good book or some embroidery.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Oh my, do you live near this plantation? I became a plantation lover many years ago after visiting my first one. Thankfully there are still many left to enjoy!
