Our intention was to drive to Walterboro, SC today, along another stretch of unremarkable real estate along I-95. Again, the “excitement” was where we could find it.
However, as we were making good time and with rainy weather forecast for later in the week, we decided to make it a long day and drive through to
and on to
the smallest of Georgia’s four barrier islands that is accessible by a single paved causeway.
The island measures roughly 7 miles in length and 1½ miles in width, much of its area being tidal marshland. Under law, 65% of its area must remain undeveloped. Over the next couple of days, we hope to explore some of its 8 miles of wide, flat beaches and 20 miles of walking, biking, and hiking trails.
