The 13th annual Yacht Hop took place on Oct. 8 at Harbor Town Yacht Basin in The Sea Pines Resort. Proceeds from Hilton Head’s favorite dock party were donated to Hospice Care of the Lowcountry. Attendees enjoyed wine and mouthwatering hors d’oeuvres freshly prepared by some of the area’s premier chefs. The fundraising event also included entertainment by The Headliners, as well as silent and live auctions. The evening closed with dessert and a champagne toast. All proceeds benefited patient care programs at Hospice Care of the Lowcountry. Special thanks to photographer Arno Dimmling for capturing all of these fantastic images.

As locals know, Tropical Storm Irma left behind an awesome gift — a 13,000 pound buoy with a giant No. 8 painted on it. The buoy, affectionately known as Buoy No. 8, quickly became one of the island’s hottest attractions before it was removed via pickup truck on Oct. 18. Photographer Thomas Love of TR Media World captured these awesome images while it was here. Find more of his buoy shots online at
