Serenity and Beauty on the approach to Botany Bay

This is the view from the unmarked dirt road that leads to Botany Bay on Edisto Island, South Carolina. Ancient live oaks frame the road, guarding the approach like Sentinels. Edisto Island is a secret paradise on the Atlantic Ocean between Charleton and Beaufort. To see it in person will take your breath away. There is no place else in the world like that of the American South's low country. It holds its own magic of nature that you wish to both share with the world, but at the same time keep all to yourself.
