Water slapped the kayak as a group of students sailed the Kaiwah River headed for a salt marsh where they would study small fish. They stopped. Then they noticed a rope, dangling in the water. It looked like a rope covered white paint, but it wasn’t paint. It was a tunicate – a sea squirt tunicate – that was small, beautiful. It was a life form that existed within the river's waters. And it was right there in front of them. Amazed, they extended their hands and touched it. That’s how it is here. Coastal living in South Carolina is far from ordinary. It is a palatial paradise where nature beckons you to step out and take a look and touch it if you can.

Wildlife finds Charleston’s coast as ethereal as its human inhabitants. It is a place where a carnivorous Lightning Whelk can be found consuming smaller shelled creatures. A omnivorous female Loggerhead Sea Turtle, the largest hard-shelled turtle, that also happens to be the state reptile of South Carolina, makes her way ashore to lay her eggs. Or, perched on a tree branch just above eye-line a Green Heron rests before taking off leaving you breathless.
