Found A River

Found A River

While this may seem like an odd title, it’s not for me. I have ‘minimal’ sense of direction. I’m convinced it comes from being born in NYC, everything is in a grid. You don’t need any spatial skills, there were signs on every corner.

This is the Cooper river, north of Charleston and flows to the Atlantic Ocean past the city.

I say I found it since it was on the end of a trail I walked, in a new area. I knew it should be right there, but really, that doesn’t mean much with me.

Because we are flat (hence Lowcountry name) it winds around lazy like. If you know the George Gershwin musical Porgy And Bess, or the song ‘Summertime’ you know the area. it was written in Charleston.  Actually the Folly Beach part of town where this river hits the back end of Folly.

And as expected wildlife followed. When I hit the river I heard Osprey, they came over the tree line.

Of course I took the shot. Short lens, but a beautiful raptor right over my head.
