What a romantic name for this Sea Pines neighborhood. The plant, Spanish moss is often associated with Southern Gothic imagery. It was introduced in the 19th century and is often called “Pele’s hair” after Pele the Hawaiian goddess. Singer-songwriter Gordon Lightfoot wrote a ballad entitled “Spanish Moss.” Beautifully maintained golf course homes within walking distance to Harbour Town provide the perfect life. Homes in this neighborhood have large living rooms and dining areas, multiple bedrooms with private baths, lovely fireplaces, huge back yards, perfect landscaping, walnut flooring, wainscoting, and large windows. American Punk Rock band Against Me! has a song titled “Spanish Moss” on their 2010 album White Crosses. “Look into the Spanish moss. Let your mind conjure up old ghosts….” Spanish moss has an interesting history: It is known to have been worn by the women of the Timucua Indian tribe, it is used by some as the filling for traditional voodoo dolls, and is used today in arts and crafts or for bedding for flower gardens, or as an ingredient in the traditional wall covering material bosillage. What an interesting symbol!
Additional Information About Sea Pines Plantation On Hilton Head Island, SC
Sea Pines owners enjoy residency in a full-service plantation with a broad array of amenities. Three shopping districts exist within the Sea Pines gates at Sea Pines Center, the shops at Harbour Town, and also at South Beach Marina Village. Additionally, Park Plaza shopping center and the commercial district at Sea Pines Circle are just outside Sea Pines main gate. Going back into the plantation, the first amenity that one comes upon is the Sea Pines Forest Preserve - Greenwood entrance - which is a 605+ acre nature preserve filled with trails, lakes, historic sites, and more undisturbed nature than is available elsewhere on the island, and particularly behind gates. Further in on Greenwood Drive, the visitor will come upon the Six Oaks Cemetery, Lawton Stables and animal petting farm, and Heritage Farms, where garden plots of varying sizes are available to residents on a first-come/first-serve basis for those that are inclined to do their own planting. Sea Pines has two beach clubs, both on Sea Pines Drive: Tower Beach Club on South Beach is for owners only and the Sea Pines Beach Club, across from the Plantation Club, is for owners and guests (renters). Those desiring a historical perspective of Sea Pines would not want to miss the Stoney Baynard Ruins on Plantation Drive in the Heritage Woods subarea.
