Beaufort Bay

Beaufort South Carolina is a city on Port Royal Island, one of South Carolina’s coastal Sea Islands. It’s known for its antebellum mansions, especially in the downtown historic district. We decided to stay in Beaufort on one of our Southern trips to the Low Country. Beaufort is a beautiful small town filled with small shops in the Historic District, a nice quiet getaway where you can still experience the old South. I shot this on a walk around the Waterfront Park and downtown marina area, the sun was going down and made for a nice scene on the bay.


Thanks for stopping!

Hunting Island Lighthouse-Hunting Island State Park, South Carolina

Hunting Island State Park is located just 16 miles east of the historic town of Beaufort and is one of the most popular and beautiful beaches in South Carolina. This 5,000 acre park and it’s 3 miles of natural beach hosts more than a million visitors a year.

It’s a place where you can truly find yourself again. It’s a place where humans and nature have always seem to co-exist. From Pirates to State Park Hunting Island got its name when the island was once used by the locals for hunting deer, waterfowl and raccoon. Hunting Island, as well as Beaufort, were a popular layover spot for sailors and pirates, including Blackbeard and his crew.

This was a shot I grabbed just after sunrise on my way out of the park to grab breakfast back at the B&B.
