Cape Romain


Intracoastal waterway meanders through Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge in  South Carolina

From Sewee Indians to pirates, from a Confederate tower to two nineteenth-century lighthouses, Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge houses a rich history across the refuge’s maze of tidal creeks, marshes, and barrier islands off the coast of South Carolina.

I seem to collect a ton of pictures of trees. 
Mother nature provides fascinating art. 

 St. James Episcopal Church
Built 126 years ago in 1890
Significant Architectural Features:
Gothic arched windows; stained and painted glass windows with gothic arched transoms; traceried transom in gothic arched surround. Square belfry with hipped roof and cross finial. Sawn bargeboards and trim. Decorative trim at gable end and on porch. Bay projection at south elevation. Exterior brick chimney on east fa├žade.



I am fascinated by this surreal view. Just beyond the grassy water is the Atlantic Ocean. 
That green clump is an island, possibly Raccoon Key

 I would love to explore Cape Romain, but sadly dogs are not allowed. 
There is a ferry that will let me take my bicycle and then go ride around some of the islands, but doggy would have to stay behind in the parking lot in the RV with  the generator running. Lately the heat and humidity have had record highs. 
I shall be more than content to ride my bicycle around the camp area with doggy. 

 When the fishing pier is empty, I ride my bike out to gaze at the marsh lands.

6.5 pounds... of pure trouble!

Plenty of fresh water is critical for pets and humans year round and even more so in the summer. Harley dog has an inside water bowl, an outside water bowl and thanks to "product testing and review"  he earned a free silicone collapsible travel water bowl he has become quite fond of. In the past he had no trouble drinking from my personal water container, including leaving behind doggy sauce and beard fur. The new little collapsible travel bowl means a lot less doggy drool in my personal water bottle. Thank goodness for small favors!

But...

Harley dog plays so hard that he forgets to drink enough water! Recently we were out on my bicycle and stopped for a spirited game of ball. At one point I had to take the ball away from him and plop down his water, refusing to let him have his toy back until he drank his bowl dry. 

Then yesterday we were playing doggy soccer when suddenly he sat down, then fell over. Good grief. Poor little fellow had to be picked up and hand carried back to his water bowl. He wanted to race around for more play time, but the big mean old human made him go inside with the air conditioning. 

A few minutes later, he was contentedly napping. 

I never thought it would be so hard to keep one human and one doggy alive. 

Thank you for stopping by. 
We woke up alive and life is goof!

Harley dog recommends it.

  2. I get up at 4am so I have an hour or two to wake up with coffee. Then around sunrise I take the garbage and the doggy out.

    It's hot all over, not just Florida. Find a way to love the early mornings and nap away the hot afternoons.
