We took our trusty (and trust worthy) sea kayak -
as we were headed to Charleston, SC.
I'm not going to add a lot of verbiage...
just photos and to tell you where we went.
On Saturday, we kayaked out of Shem Creek.
There is a boat ramp around the corner from Coastal Expeditions.
We went over to Crab Bank - it opened up on Friday Oct. 15.
We found TONS of fossilized shark teeth!
We love to look for sharks' teeth.
On Sunday, we put our kayak in at Wapoo Cut Landing, near the Ashley River Bridge (Folly Road Drawbridge).
We kayaked around the Battery.
Which was just awesome!
It looked different from the water side...
As you go past the Battery, this is what comes into view (not quite as close).
The Cooper River Bridge.
Such a beautiful bridge, especially at night.
We went over to the USS Yorktown.
We found this sign (after we got out onto the island), tossed into the shrubs.
If you're interested in the history of the island (pre-civil war) follow the link.
A shot of the crumbling fort with a fantastic little tree on top.
The island is slowly being reclaimed by nature.
It is beautiful.
The ship, the fort and the beach.
NOT for beginners or the faint of heart.
We were in the water, paddling for about 7 hours.
All I can say is
"Look at those biceps!"
