We were not sure how long or how far we would hike. Our plan was to start at Buck Hall and go as far as the canoe launch on Awendaw Creek and then back to Buck Hall. Looking at the map, we figured that would be somewhere around 9 miles or so!!
We had put on plenty of bug spray, but the mosquitos were still there in force at times;o(( If the breeze was blowing, we were OK. If not, they were EVERYWHERE;o( I had made note of a geocache located along our hike. The mosquitos were the worst right about the search location.
However, after about 10minutes, I found the ammo box and signed the log book so we could get out of there!!
Nancy snapped a ton of photos as we walked. Quite frankly, there was very little wildlife along the way.
However, the trail took you in and out of
Pine Needles everywhere
Our favorite was the Salt Marsh
All along the trail we did see pretty flowers.
When we finally reached the canoe launch at Awendaw Creek, we realized the map was not real accurate and our walk would be slightly over 11 miles.
We want to Kayak Awendaw Creek if the winds die down and we can figure out the tides;o))
We turned back at the canoe launch
Good breeze and NO mosquitos!!!
It was a longer walk than we thought it would be. By the time we got back, we were both tired. Our GPS indicated we had wallked about 11.5 miles!! Nancy took a power nap and I went to the bath house to take a long, hot shower. I know we both will be in bed early tonight. We need to do a lot more hiking and biking to get our legs in shape. As Nancy pointed out to me today, “We don’t have to do it all in one day!!” I guess she is right;o))
