SC Picture Project | Beaufort County | St. Helena Island
St Helena Island is a quiet sea island in Beaufort County and is perhaps best known for its historic connection to Gullah culture and language still abundant on the island today. The island is filled with many historic and famous sites such as the Penn Center and Chapel of Ease.
This is a photo of the famous TideRunner, a boat that once belonged to Emmett Paul who was a well-known Beaufort shrimper in the 1990s. The Tiderunner has been stuck in the marsh for years, and was made famous when it was featured in the movie the Prince of Tides. You can see the boat from the highway going into Hunting Island State Park.
