Spend the day fishing for red fish, trout, and snapper. If you are feeling lazy, throw a crab pot off the floating dock in the morning and enjoy blue crab for dinner. With Magnolia and Drayton Plantation located to the South and Middleton Place located to the North there is always plenty to explore and see including waterfowl like heron, egret, osprey and the occasional bald eagle along the Audubon Swamp Garden located just across the way at Magnolia Plantation! There are very few places in Charleston that you can literally watch the sun rise in the morning and set in the evening and this is one of those places!
