beautiful, but I don’t recommend going by plane. We
approached the island runway by plane from a cliff.
Actually, one side is a mountain, and three sides are
cliffs. The pilot missed the runway the first time—it was
only 2,500 feet long. Then, he tried to approach with
the tailwind. He landed and came to a stop on the edge
of a cliff—the wings were hanging on the edge of a cliff.
When we got out, there were three men standing next to a
truck with ladders to save us if needed, as this is a normal
occurrence. It’s an experience we’ll never forget.”
The Next Adventure
Every year the Ronson’s would travel up and down
the Intracoastal Waterway, stopping in destinations like
Southport, NC, Hilton Head, SC, and Savannah, GA.
Each trip, they’d stop in Brunswick, GA, where they
happened upon the Troupe Creek Marina, a quiet,
deep-water port. They fell in love with the area—with
the land, the wildlife and the weather—so much so that
the Ronson’s decided to buy it, develop it and live in it.
Today, Hidden Harbor is a private, gated community of
26 three-story, three-bedroom, three-bath townhomes,
each with unobstructed vistas of waterways, saltmarshes
and coastal islands.
With 868-feet of brand new deep-water docks offering
shore power, water and over 15 feet of depth at low tide
(MLW), it’s a perfect place to dock your boat and live
the boating lifestyle year-round.
“We are the owners, developers and builders,” Chris
said. “We’re a small, husband and wife team, who came
out of retirement because we love the area. We built
Hidden Harbor knowing that we would be one of the
owners. We’ve built the property to the highest stan-
dards, and the townhomes come with many significant
green aspects. We’ve even secured 90 percent financing
with Wells Fargo.”
What’s your next adventure? Perhaps, you won’t have
quite the excitement of the Ronsons, but adventures can
await retirees looking for a fun-filled lifestyle at any turn. |
