South Carolina Adventure

Our visit to the  Ernest F. Hollings Ace Basin National Wildlife Refuge

Dixie “Had The Eye” as per usual… noticing what I had not seen.

Two Nested Juveniles which to most would have stood out…but, not me today.


2 small alligators

HOW did She DO this… picking out the reptiles from out of All This?

From out of acres and acres of vastness…

I must have been distracted by whatever…

Ace Basin Rice Field


Agitators…Well, Of COURSE… The American Alligator… this 8-Footer.

8 Feet Below… In a old rice field with moss-stagnant water

Unmoving…Sunning…so, obviously he/she was not perturbed by our presence.





Experiencing South Carolina – a Treat…camping, photography, sharing togetherness with sweetness…struggling through photography settings and wildlife finds.

Then…we walked thru the Moody Overhead Spanish Moss…Giving pause to the foggy over-lite dank foliage…above moist mowed vastness.

Spanish Moss


And ON to the Grove Plantation House…originally built by George Washington Morris in 1828.

Passing through several hands until 1992 when it was acquired by the US Fish & Wildlife Service.

We wondered; what would it have been like to Live There and Then…

Objections, Acknowledgements, Confessions, Corrections…

Journey, Distance, Time, History, and Reflections…
