then take a walk over to where these delicious Scuppernong berries are grown, then when your curiosity is satisfied you can wander over to the actual Bloody Point museum, where, while you’re there, be sure to taste a sample of their legendary Scuppernong wine produced and bottled on Daufuskie Island and sold directly to you from the gift shop.
From the Lighthouse museum, you can enjoy a unique, meander, stopping over at dozens of clearly demarcated historical points of interest.
