Had a couple hours to kill, so I decided to take a longer trip to Cypress Gardens...the warmer weather rewarded me handsomely

CRITTERS great & small...and some ugly, too.


This is a little guy...about 3' long. He looks bigger 'cause I was about 10' away at full zoom...




And slightly bigger (like 8' bigger)...



What is it with squirrels and not sharing?






I love the water reflection in this place...




COLOR BREAK!!













And a cool old well pump...love rustic old things like this...and barns, houses & tractors...

Hey Dude! Thanks, Man. Funny that I've lived in SC nearly all my life, and until last Oct, I had never been to Cypress Gardens.

Good to see you over here!

I used to live up in Goose Creek by the weapons station, worked there too, Navy and all that. Man, I loved SC, what a beutiful place. I can't believe how it has changed for the worst with the massive build up of homes and people, particularly near Charleston. Sad! It has lost its unique charm, that southern charm. However, there are beutiful places and sites to see. One of my most favorite places on this planet. Thanks for the pics, they bring me back many years to happier times.

Really enjoying this tour , check ourt cypress gardens when it's at full bloom ( which should be soon) the combo of the blackwater and azaleas blooming are spectacular

Snapped a few pics, but mostly just rode, tucked down behind the meager fairing on the ever faithful KLR. The first batch of pics are hardly coastal SC (up near Columbia on US176), but the last few are from Shem Creek, in Mt. Pleasant.

I would have loved to rummage around inside this old place, but if the porch floor was any indication of the condition of the floor inside the place, I would have fallen thru...









These are from what I'd geuss to be an old sharecropper's cabin along rural 176...





It was getting on into the afternoon by this time, so I headed to Shem Creek in Mt Pleasant for some sunset action...

An old shrimp boat on the docks



A not so old powerboat. A Harbor tour on this thing would be fun, I bet!



And finally, the setting sun along the coast @ Shem Creek...






Time spent



in the Fortress of Solitude is always good
