The coast during the winter is beautiful. The colors are so serene, with soothing tones, and often a crispness in the air that you don’t get around here in South Carolina during the summer. As I was glancing through our travel photos, I ran across these photos I posted when I wrote about Botany Bay last year.

Botany Bay is an old residence, turned nature preserve located just outside of Edisto Beach, South Carolina.

Such an unusual beach compared to most of the coastline in the Carolinas.

So extreme, exotic, and mysterious.

Of course, Botany Bay is a mighty nice place to visit during the popular spring and summer vacation times. If you’re looking for a weekend getaway or passing through, near Hwy. 17, take a detour, and stop by to check it out.

Happy travels!
