The reason I show this photo is that it portrays a South Carolina that most folks in this state would not even be aware exists. Palm trees on beaches start to get much less frequent north of here. This beach is seldom visited, maybe one person a day. Mine were the only footprints on this particular day. Unfortunately biting sand flies made this photograph a chore to take. I was cycling along the beach at high speed to avoid them and stopping invited a swarm on to your legs and arms.
