Near the North Edisto river lies the Botany Bay Plantation Heritage Reserve, one of the largest undeveloped wetland ecosystems along the Atlantic coast. I already posted photos of Botany Bay, a beloved island painted with oyster shells, haunting driftwood, and solitude. At Botany Bay, Pelicans stream by, creating an avian rush hour in the sky, cemeteries of gnarly driftwood outnumber people, and the sand sticks with you, calling you back like a siren song.
But the back waters are interesting too. Follow my feet...
