FORTUNE HAS BESTOWED upon me the opportunity to spend much of my life on islands. First, Cuba (pre-Fidel), then four decades on Hilton Head Island interspersed with a stint on Oahu, Hawaii. There is something about island living. Not just the sparkling sea, soft moist air, or laid-back lifestyle. What One Thing makes living on this island — Hilton Head — so desired, so enriching? To discover the secret, we will take a Walkabout — a meandering, maybe mystical, and definitely eyeopening journey of discovery across this grand old isle. Perhaps we shall find the One Thing, the True Secret Place — and in the process, rediscover ourselves.

In a place known for thousands of luxury homes, vacation condos and guest houses, there are other residential enclaves tucked away on the island. They are feral cat colonies, outdoor areas in the woods where a loyal team of volunteers help trap stray and wild cats and have them spayed or neutered, as well as inoculated for rabies and other diseases. Due to their lifestyle, they are basically unadoptable and therefore returned to their natural habitat after treatment.

It’s there in these selfdescribed colonies where the volunteers provide the feral cats with food and water daily which enables them to maintain a healthy lifestyle on the island.


Do you recall the verse, “All things wise and wonderful, all creatures great and small, all things bright and beautiful, the Lord God made them all?”

Perhaps it was this thought back in 2008 that motivated Debi Boies of Landrum, and pilot Jon Wehrenberg to start the non-profit Pilots N Paws organization. Wouldn’t it be wonderful, they thought, if needy animals could be flown to people and destinations where they would be loved and cared for?

Could they mobilize people, pilots, planes to transport “all creatures great and small” to the right places for love and healing?

Today, Pilots N Paws has recruited more than 3,400 pilots, according to executive director Kathleen Quinn. There are nearly 13,000 registered users on their site and more than 60,000 Facebook fans following their activities. Pilots N Paws have volunteers in all 50 states and “creatures great and small,” their rescue animals, number 12,000 in one year.

marinaEach year, tons of plastics and other litter are tossed into rivers, left on beaches, or dumped overboard from recreational and commercial vessels. Litter not only looks bad, but can put people and wildlife in danger. Marine debris can last a long time. Let’s keep South Carolina’s beaches safe and beautiful. Do your part to prevent trash from becoming marine debris.
