Ernest Walker House, Hog Hammock

Old automobiles are a common sight in Hog Hammock. Due to the difficulty and cost in removing them from the island, they are frequently found in an abandoned state. 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 above illustrates Mr. Ernest Walker’s garden. He was working hard to remove weeds the day before. 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.
