A visit to Charlestowne Landing

Paid a visit to Charles Towne Landing for the first time today. Buried in the middle of the city, it's a remarkably quiet place with a lot of gorgeous scenery, wide marsh views, native Carolina animals and lots of history.

While I was sitting around waiting for my fellow photowalkers, the person manning the visitor's center told me an alligator had just swam up to the bridge, so I walked out to get a few photos.

There's a lot to see and a lot of trails to wander around. Head down to the creek and check out the Adventure, a replica cargo vessel that would have carried cargo to ports up and down the east coast.

There's also the Animal Forest, where you can see animals native to the Carolinas, including a few bison!

While you're walking along the trails, keep an eye out to avoid stumbling into things like this

Charles Towne Landing is a gem of a place and definitely worth multiple visits.
