1. SC Pictures of the Month – From the Mountains to the Sea

As you'll see in the next section, we had to skimp a little on our May Calendar of Events, so we're making it up to you by featuring TWO "SC Pictures of the Month"! These photos celebrate South Carolina "from the mountains to the sea"!


Located in Greenville County, Caesars Head State Park is an ideal place to enjoy fishing, hiking, camping, and bird watching. With gorgeous views of the Blue Ridge Escarpment, it is home to Raven Cliff Falls – our state's highest waterfall.

This picture was submitted to the SC Picture Project by Josh Jones of Greenville, a professional photographer who specializes in weddings, architecture, and nature photography. Check out his website for more pictures.

Little River

The quiet village of Little River, located along the Grand Strand, is one of the oldest coastal settlements in South Carolina. The community is growing quickly and holds an annual Blue Crab Festival. Visitors and residents alike enjoy evening boat cruises and all-day deep-sea fishing excursions year-round.

Local resident Cathy Fullager took this picture during an evening stroll. She says the village's natural beauty and serenity are why she loves living there.

If you would like your picture to be featured in our newsletter, please send it to SCIWAY. We select photos for the newsletter from the ones we receive, and it's a great way to bring publicity to you or your town.

2. Upcoming SC Festivals & Events – May 2009

Last month we promised to start sending you our entire South Carolina Calendar of Events every month, but we ran into a huge problem. The calendar contained so many links, mail servers around the state marked it as spam. In all, about a quarter of our 40,000 subscribers never even received it!

This month, we are only sending links to the first 10 events – all of which happen to take place on May 1. Please click here to find links for ALL May events. There are close to 100, and we don't want you to miss out on any of them.

If you are interested in adding your SC event to our calendar, please visit our calendar options.

Last but not least, remember that all of our calendars of events, for every month of the year, are available on SCIway website's 24/7/365 – just go to https://www.sciway.net/calendar.html
