It’s not  unusual to hear travelers passing through South Carolina and Georgia comment on the outdoor smell.  Some make a quick assumption that it is industry when in fact it is from a very natural resource the salt marsh.   Natural wildlife inhabited areas are open to walk through on trails and you will have a “spa like” feeling after a short period of time from the quiet peaceful environment.   So hop off the I95 when your nose starts to itch in the low country and pamper yourself to a free retreat.

Happy travels 🙂

Step back to the 1890’s at Fort Fremont on Lands End Road-Beaufort S Carolina

I don’t have a whole lot to say about this Fort except that it was rather spooky to me even in the afternoon.  It is located in Beaufort County  a coastal S Carolina county and this is on St. Helena island that has a wealth of culture,  marshland, wildlife and the after life.

For those who seek out the hauntings  you may want to take the 2 mile drive from Frogmore to Lands end in the evening, there is a mysterious light that has been known to chase vehicles.

I’m a beleiver because I felt the chills on a hot humid afternoon.  Also, I would not rate this Fort as family friendly, so keep the young and old nearby.

For a reference point this is located not far off the I 95 between Charleston S Carolina and Savannah Georgia.
