Folly Creek Salt Marsh

Folly Creek Salt Marsh
The low country of South Carolina is an area of outstanding natural beauty and draws me back to Hilton Head time and time again.

Our timeshare resort enjoys a unique position on the east side of the island.

It overlooks the low lying salt marsh, fed twice daily by the ocean's ebb and flow, at Folly Creek Inlet.
The long boardwalk that crosses the salt marsh allows us to stop and observe the ever changing landscape during high and low tides.

Information about the salt marsh, the wildlife that inhabits the region and the maritime forest that encloses it is provided to educate us further.

Finally, as we cross the sand dunes and arrive at the wide, flat beach itself we turn left to begin our early morning walk.

The gang's all here.
We usually set ourselves a target to reach, before turning around and heading back, we try and walk about 3 miles each day.

This morning the skies are grey and overcast, although it hasn't rained yet we expect some later today.
Perhaps we'll be mall walking instead!
Linking this post about one of my favourite places to Lauries A Few of My Favourite Things gathering so, why not head on over to see who else is participating this week?

  7. Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos of South Carolina. I love the coastal areas and history that South Carolina offers. Is Folly Creek anywhere near Folly Island? I have a friend with a beach house there and have visited a few times.

  8. Just the words 'low country of South Carolina' send me into a state of blissful imagination. How many wonderful books have been set there?
    I hope your time away continues to be lots of fun!
