This week’s travel theme is about the power of pallid. These photos are from a magical summer afternoon in June 2012, paddling near Edisto Island, South Carolina (aka, Heaven).
We launched from Cherry Point Landing (Wadmalaw) and headed for Deveaux Bird Sanctuary,
an “Important Bird Area” at the mouth of the North Edisto River.
Just us, the dolphins, seabirds, and Lord Willin.
Our plans changed due to weather and wind. We decided to visit serene, uninhabited (by people) Botany Bay, a 4687-acre wildlife preserve located on Edisto Island. It’s managed by the Department of Natural Resources as part of the agency’s Wildlife Management Area Program.
Another marvel—the tracks of a sea turtle, heading back to the ocean.
I love this. I went immediately to “Google” to check out this island. Did you do this as part of a symposium or just a “paddle for two”?
Hi, J. We were on vacation in Folly Beach (20 minutes from fabulous Charleston, SC). It warrants its own post… stay tuned 🙂
BTW, you should be able to click on the hot links in 2G3K and save yourself a google; if we didn’t goof up, the info should appear in a new window. Thanks for visiting!
How lucky to see those tracks! And the last photo is reminiscent of beaches on the Georgia Sea Islands, where I used to go with my family as a child. Love the whelk, too!
