Today I wanted to get out of the house. Mark suggested we see what Cane Bay was like. We checked it out, There were lots of houses and some shops, and it is getting bigger. We did not stop to see anything there but continued on to Holly Hill. Another town we had never seen !
We learned the swamp is called Four Hole Swamp. Why it is called Four Hole Swamp, no one has any memory of.
The boardwalk through the swamp was a 1 3/4 miles. It was all on a boardwalk, it made it an easy walk and protected the swamp.
swamp! It was not smelly. I thought swamps were bad smelling places. This was not.
There are going to be pictures of the swamp. It was beautiful
A three point cypress knee
A large downed tree and a part of the old boardwalk. We wondered why the boardwalk was left in the water.
Hurricane Hugo ripped through the area 25 years ago. It tore up the boardwalk, knocked down trees, and since this is a natural swamp, they left things were they lay.
We were told these can change colors.
On the board walk out to the lake, we saw some otter scat. It was the only smelly thing in the swamp!
We did see two splashes in the lake area and we are going to believe those were otters!
Lon thought the item 1462 Columbus was playing with boats in his bathtub was one of the funniest lines in the whole placard
One of the poisonous snakes in South Carolina.
He was not a danger to us, nor us to him.
We caught him just before he slipped into the water.
At the center, the naturalist brought out a stainless steel travel coffee mug that an 8 foot alligator got a hold of. He brought out an alligator skull to show Lon.
Lon thought this was really cool !
Even though it was bit chilly, in the low 50s, we had a great time! It was such a cool place.
We want to see what it is like in other seasons.
