Camellia Garden Walk

Hilton Head Island, South Carolina

Honey Horn Plantation-Coastal Discovery Museum

This is a path I frequently walk since it seems to offer different scenery each time. The flowers are ever-changing, like the trees, and the marsh.  My fit-bit noted 4,928 steps, on a 1.95-mile walk.  I’ll take it, more would be better but there is something to be said about relaxation.

 

Perfect timing, so many flowers to see along the oyster shell path.

 

 

 

And there’s more beauty to enjoy under the 300-year-old oak trees

 

And there are more flowers

 

 

Honey Horn Plantation is on the north end of Hilton Head Island.  The Coastal Discovery Museum is located there along with the Camellia Garden, a butterfly enclosure, the salt marsh, a variety of local trees, nature trails, and a vegetable and herb garden customary in the Gullah culture.  The location also hosts many planned events throughout the year.

 

There is also an old cemetery on the property  that visitors are allowed to walk through

 

And if you ever get the urge to walk on the “pluff mud” or in the marsh grass wear high rubber boots because you this is how far you may sink in or cut your feet on an oyster shell.

 

South Carolina has an oyster shell recycling program and a collection site is located at the site.
