It seems we're always backed up to gates which are not open to us. We are likewise not invited inside of this adorned gate. There can, however, be no question as to were we are as it's spelled out right on top of the gate's header:

H O N D A R O S A !

Doesn't it roll nicely off the tongue ? It fairly resonates in the chest when you belt it out. We think that Rogers and Hammerstein missed a great musical opportunity on this one. They would almost certainly have chosen us for the lead. Can't you just see us in first gear cruising the furrowed ruts of a corn field and singing, " Oh, what a beautiful morning, Oh, what a beautiful day, We've got a beautiful feeling, HONDAROSA is going our way ". " Our sign is as high as an elephant's eye and it looks like it's growing right up to the sky ".

In our ongoing roll call of Low Country gems, HONDAROSA ! answers loud and strong. This, too, is the Low Country, folks.
