The Conformity of Leisure

[Above] Condos, Hilton Head Island
South Carolina

Off Season. Four million dollar homes sit abandoned on the fingernail of beach that surrounds Hilton Head Island. Perfectly manicured lawns and 9 foot plate glass windows wait for butterfly crosswinds somewhere in western Africa to push a wave out into the Atlantic. That wave, Neptune's rage, will erase millions of dollars of real estate only to have insurance dollars come to the rescue.

And the outside world will watch while CNN provides both the theme music and live satellite shots from hotel balconies. Eventually, the weather from Cape Fear to 31 North will boil. It is only a matter of time. But this is the off season, and the only drama here is based around the air temperature reaching 70 degrees in the morning. It is a constant source of contention among the snowbirds from Long Island and Westchester.
