When you bicycled from Huntington Beach State Park up to Creek Ratz, you went right passed my house. I live adjacent to the wooden bridge that crosses the marsh, only on the other side of the road which is Rt. 17. You were on Business 17. How did you like H.B.S.P? I have taken thousands of pictures there as it's a photographers paradise. Did you visit Brookgreen Gardens? Another great place for photo ops. Murrells Inlet is full of seafood restaurants, some good and some not so good, if you like seafood. Things are getting a little pricey here as we are in the middle of a "tourist trap" area. (Myrtle Beach.)
If you're ever headed this way, let me know as I would be more than happy to meet you and your wife in person. And thank you for the welcome message!
Oops, I misspoke. It was Huntington Beach State Park instead of Murrell's Inlet State Park.
It was 1 of my all time favorite camping trips. I agree that it is a photographer's paradise, especially on the causeway coming into the park.
We did visit Brookgreen Gardens, but not spend near enough time there. It was on travel home day, and I was anxious to get a couple of miles under my belt.
Atalaya was also very interesting, and well worth the tour through that.
The nature museum was great, also.
We used the public boat ramp at Murrell's Inlet to launch our canoe, and had a pleasant afternoon paddling the marsh area there.
The sand on the beach for the most part is had packed between low and high tide marks, and it was great riding my bike on the beach. Sango the wonder dog enjoyed it, also.
I will definitely give you a heads up when we make it down that way again.
