Anytime is a good time for hobbies that bring joy

With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events – and just plain fun questions.

You might see us anywhere around town, with notepad and camera, randomly seeking out folks who are willing to participate. If we find you, we hope you will want to respond.

At Mitchelville Freedom Park on Beach City Road, during the Juneteenth Celebration, we asked, “Which of your hobbies brings you the most joy?”

Geneva Christopher, Hilton Head Island: “Traveling. I love to meet new people and see new places.”











Ryann Garrett, Walterboro: “I like to write – it’s therapeutic. I go out on my front porch with the birds and just write.”












Bronwyn Gilbert, Atlanta: “Definitely gardening. It’s peaceful, and I like seeing things grow.”











Tai Scott, Hilton Head Island: “Fishing. Being on the water is peaceful, even if I don’t catch anything.”












Larry Sanders, Bluffton: “I love community service and giving back. It’s just a joy to me to see joy in others.”
