Reader Submission: Little Blue


“Hey, there. I was Googling Hunting Island and saw your post about the light house. I thought you might be interested in an experience I had at the park.

My family and I recently spent a week in Beaufort (South Carolina). We did the typical touristy stuff – carriage rides, history tours, lots of shrimp and grits – but one day we got bored with the scene in town and drove to Hunting Island State Park.

Reader Submission: The Bloody Rope


“My wife is from the Beaufort, SC area and we would camp at Hunting Island. After dark, we would go to Fort Fremont and walk down to the beach. Around midnight we’d sit near a tree hoping to see the Land’s End Lights. We never saw the lights, but we once shined a flashlight up a tree and saw a rope tied around a big branch which goes over the road and hangs down about a foot.

At the end of the rope, was a few inches of red stain that looked like blood. Thinking it must have been hard to get the rope tied that high in the tree, and feeling it was someone’s prank, we came back early the next morning to take a picture. However, the bloody rope was no longer there. I know the area, and I know we were at the right tree. I’m not saying it was anything supernatural, but if it was a prank someone went through a lot of trouble to put the rope there then take it back down. Has anyone else seen this?”
