A Break for Vacation (with pictures)

At the end of September and beginning of October, I went to a South Carolina island named, Fripp Island. Before our arrival, it rained, leaving the ground saturated. Plus, the supermoon brought higher than usual tides. And a hurricane churned in the Atlantic, which didn’t help anything. In addition to all or my usual vacation stuff, I had rain/flooding, too. Below are some pictures of my trip.

High tide as well as rain brought flooding. This picture is the main road on the island.

The picture below is a marsh boardwalk (yes, it does connect) to another observation deck that usually is a few feet above a smelly, salt water marsh the next island over, Hunting Island.

At high tide during a rain storm, I got lunch at Johnson Creek Tavern. I don’t eat seafood, but the locals say the seafood is excellent. I enjoy their burgers and bbq. The picture below is looking out at the marsh the outside dining area borders. It’s usually green.

Enough of rain and flooding. Fripp Island is a wildlife preserve. Currently, they have 400-500 deer roaming the island. I typically take about 20 or 30 deer pictures a visit. This was no different. I’ll share a few below.

I also saw egrets and ospreys. This egret is between the tees of the 17th hole of Ocean Creek Golf course. The osprey was in the courtyard of villas, a first time seeing one there.

My favorite time of day is sunrise, so I’ll end with these photos.

I’m interested in many things, from Mars to space travel, music to books, movies to creating my own stories. My sci-fi novel, The Music of Mars, is available now.
