David's World: Oorah! Sunrise from causeway to Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island a beauty

Staff photo

This iPhone shot of the sunrise blew me away this morning as I drove the causeway to Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island.

I went over to watch a drill instructor at work. He was three hours into his workday before the sun pierced the clear skies of the Lowcountry.

You can read about the DI in an upcoming keepsake edition of our paper for the 100th anniversary of Marine Corps recruit training on Parris Island in beautiful Port Royal, S.C.

The mile-long Gen. E.A. Pollock Memorial Causeway and bridge over Archer's Creek brought the first land access to the depot in 1929.

Oorah!
