Bulls Island Hint Of Sunrise

We hoped to get onto the bone yard beach, so named for dead trees that have toppled as the island’s sands shift, before sunrise. The tide chart was with us but strong winds pushed the ocean currents ashore.

So we made do with a second choice spot.

Near the same spot, the next day when it wasn’t nearly as windy, but we still had to opt for choice two.

Good Morning, Sun, Good Night, Moon

The rising sun made a grand entrance over South Carolina’s ACE Basin on Thursday.

Turn 180 degrees and the view wasn’t nearly as flashy, but the setting full moon casting a reflection in the canal was quite pretty.

South Carolina’s Ashepoo, Combahee and South Edisto (ACE) Basin represents one of the largest undeveloped estuaries on the east coast of the United States.

Pond Sunrise

It had been our intention to be at a different pond when the sun came up but between getting out the door a few minutes late and a truck ahead of us that was indecisive that didn’t happen. I don’t think our original destination could have been any prettier than this. Unless there was a bird, or two, in the water.
