This, my friends, was the glorious drive down to Botany Bay Plantation in Edisto Island, South Carolina. The trees in the South are truly beautiful. They tend to reach across the road and hold hands, creating the most gorgeous canopy I’ve ever seen. While I love the North, you can’t find such a spectacle…not with the Spanish moss hanging down. Dreamy!
I’ve been holding onto these pictures to share with you at the perfect time: summer, and after I got my MacBook. Mainly because, duh, it’s summer and it’s the perfect time to go see all of these gorgeous trees, but also because my MacBook is capable of processing these RAW files in Photoshop without conking out on me. Apple FTW!
When friends invited us to spend a few days in Edisto, I immediately searched what there was to do and I fell in love with the strange tree “cemetery” still holding on despite the salty ocean tides. We arrived at high tide, and at one point I had to climb onto a tree to avoid the wave. I still got drenched, in case you were wondering. With splinters to boot.
After we got our fill of what this gorgeous natural wonder had to offer, we made our way back to the car. You pass the Salt Marsh on your way back. Again, unbelieveable colors.
