Old cars are a common sight in Hog Hammock. Due to the difficulty and cost in removing them from the island, they are frequently encountered. On my visits with a part-time resident, I’ve ridden in a wide variety of “gently used” vehicles. Gently used is putting it kindly.
The image below illustrates what’s left of Mr. Ernest Walker’s fall garden, who was working hard to remove weeds the day before so he could plant his summer crops. The people of Hog Hammock are very self-sufficient and I have great respect for that; when I visited the day before with my friend who lives nearby, I learned that Mr. Walker is legally blind.
