The shore of this barrier island has no seen activity for a long time. When storms hit there is no ‘cleanup’. It’s whatever nature throws at it next time.
The island has always been under private ownership but only one person did anything here. The wealthy business man Ted Turner (who is the 2nd largest land owner in the US) had a house built at some point.
South Carolina now owns the land and it is to be a wildlife area with access only via a company who has experience, and knowledge, with scientific eco-tours. We were the first day people allowed to explore the island.
A shoreline with ‘old bones’ like this is magical.
