Sweet Sunny South

That neighborhood, the Point?  Several of the houses have been used as sets for lots of movies you've seen.  The bridge in the top picture got the funeral procession over the bay in The Big Chill (at 4:00 minute of this video, don't suffer through the whole clip.) The house they used for that film was around the corner of the one pictured, it had extensive obstructions to keep the riff-raff away.  Had it been warmer we'd would have gladly kayaked past it.  Also filmed here were films of local resident Pat Conroy's books The Prince of Tides and The Great Santini.  Forest Gump ran across the bridge as well.
