"N0T The First Key" Daufuskie Island by grandmaR
Daufuskie Island Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 15 photos
The story that everyone loves to tell about this island is that it was the Gullah for "The First Key". The idea was that the little islands or keys were numbered instead of names. It is interesting that there's no Second Key or Third Key or Fourth Key.
So, only the first key was named this way? - NOT.
It is more likely that it is an Indian name. BobbyMcGee, a boat capt. for Daufuskie Island Resort & Breathe Spa, said he was told that it was given that name by the Chechessee Indians and means "sharp feather".
- Pros:Only accessable by boat - no bridge
- Cons:Only accessable by boat - no bridge
