Our family from back home in NWPA drove almost fifteen hours to stay with us for a week!
We decided other than beach time we would take them exploring nature – and the best way for that for us was Vareen Gardens – just across the border in S.C.
We explored the coast – ICW views and the trail then continues across the marsh and into the woods.

We have an enclosed lanai along with an open patio with a fire pit.
It does get really hot in the sun out in the open – but mornings are shaded and so are early evenings.
Needless to say – we are not happy with this – I spread snake-be-gone around and mow the grass short.
But – it is a protected area in the woods – and since I put down the snake-be-gone –
we have not seen anymore – but I warn the grandkids to watch what they are doing!
This one I later found out was not poisonous and as soon as I took the picture-
it turned around and very fast went back into the woods.
We have also seen them down by the pond!
At night – deer will set off our motion light in the backyard as I will look out and see them.
We are only four miles from the beach – but it is real country.
One of the reasons we picked this area.
In these trees are countless birds and sounds that I can not identify.
I smile when I look at them – and to me, that is all that counts!
But we have so much more back there.
We have SUNSETS that are to die for!
Soon we will add two more Palm trees back here!
All the family tends to end up on the back patio and lanai – with seating and a SOLO STOVE firepit.
We look for dead wood and pine combs to burn along with purchasing wood from the stores.
Once the fire gets going it is almost smokeless!
We choose this lot because of the woods and how it would be situated for SUNRISES and SUNSETS!
It does not disappoint!
