Last night was the book signing for Salt Water in My Blood: The Life Story of Legendary Seaman Capn Sonny Morrison at the town hall. The event was hosted by The Village Museum and Bud Hill gave the introductory speech to standing-room-only crowd. Sonnys wife, Jackie Morrison then spoke about her challenges trying to get Sonny to tell his life story. Finally, the man of the hour, Captain Sonny Morrison rose from his seat to recount a few of his favorite stories of growing up in McClellanville.
Sonny is a life-long resident of McClellanville and has spent that entire life on the water. The book tells many of his stories and adventures ranging from growing up on Jeremy Creek, serving his country in the Navy in World War II, and his very successful shrimping career.
The book is available at The Village Museum where all proceeds have been graciously donated. Please stop by, tour the museum, and pick up a copy of this great example of life in McClellanville.
