|Lots of fine scenery like
this along the Edisto. There wasn't a mile where you didn't
pass some kind of camp, trailer, or home, but it was mostly
undeveloped riverside. There was also a steady, if not
constant, sound of hounds and gun shots. They hunt deer 6
months out of the year and they are allowed to run the deer
with dogs, including on Sunday. At one point we passed a man
and some kids on a dock and Bill was chatting with them.
Three gunshots sounded nearby, sounded like 100 yards

clearly see the bottom, and it was interesting to see the

outfitters two sites at this location. This is not the nicer
one. But the pavilion is a nice feature if it is going to
rain. There is another smaller pavilion, with a hard roof,
behind the photographer.
