Spot the Moment the Grass turns Green


"I have been thinking about the change of the seasons.  I don't want to miss spring this year.  I want to be there on the spot the moment the grass turns green."

Fort Fremont at Saint Helena Island

Fort Fremont is located on Saint Helena Island, South Carolina.  The beach is not accessible except for a over grown trail and there needs to be cleanup from trash people have left on the beach.  The park is small and it only took us less then an hour to tour the fort. 

Among the Driftwood at Hunting Island Beach

Hunting Island Beach is covered in driftwood.  We visited the island in August and it was not very crowded since most people were interested in touring the Lighthouse and walking the trails.  Beaufort is part of the South Carolina low country famous for it's southern cooking, marshland, and beaches.

Lagoon Access and Marsh Boardwalk Trails, Hunting Island

The Lagoon Access Trail is 1.4 miles and winds along the lagoon.  It leads you through the maritime forest.  The Marsh Board Walk Trail and Crossover are easy hiking trails that connects the Lagoon Access Trail and the Maritime Forest.

Hunting Island State Park and Lighthouse

Hunting Island is South Carolina's most popular state park.  The island has 5 miles of beach, maritime forest, a saltwater lagoon and thousands of acres of marsh and tidal creeks.  The lighthouse was built in 1859.
