It’s a good time of year to revisit this post from 2011: Loggerhead Sea Turtles in South Carolina.
For some reason, and I’m not exactly sure how, our summer visit with one side of the family resulted in parties from New York, Michigan, and Oklahoma converging on . . . South Carolina. I didn’t mind, of course: a week on a South Carolina beach is appealing to me at any time of year and under just about any condition. We ended up in lovely Isle of Palms, a barrier island just north of Charleston.
(not the place we rented, but gives you an idea of the area)
We enjoyed a week of sand and surf, seafood, and sightseeing. We toured a plantation, Fort Sumter, the I’on Swamp in the Francis Marion Forest, Caper’s Island, etc. We even took in a Carolina Riverdogs game. The highlight had to be, however, the sea turtles.

There’s not much room for beach-nesting birds on Isle of Palms…
