Charleston April 2019

Well,  just got back from the first paddling trip of the year.  Outside of Alaska the gang didn't do much paddling.  We have a renewed purpose to now get in as much as possible.  The time for the bucket list is upon us.

That being said, Helpdesk, Hiking Geer and Gusto made the trip to Sullivan's Island for a couple of days as paddling.  On Friday we did a short trip to Cat Island on the Wando River.  It rained hard in the morning so we waited until as late as possible to catch the last of low tide for the trip down river.  Once there, the low tide had exposed a lot of beach and this area is great for finding sharks teeth.  We probably found close to a dozen or so.  Mostly small but nice nonetheless.   You can see the rows of dark rock and shells that are the hiding places for small sharks teeth in the photo below.

On Saturday it was a great day with no rain early.  We took the tide out to Bull Island for lunch and a long walk on the many trails found there.  Saw a couple of very small gators but no big ones this time out.

Look closely... can you see the gator?
