Charleston’s lesser known places:
At the end of a long day of showing property, making calls and battling traffic (and I mean battling), I get to go home to one of the peaceful and less known areas of Charleston. I hesitate to tell you where, because frankly, I’m not sure I want anyone else to find out about this oasis only a short drive from the city. What I will tell you is that it’s filled with off the road, breathtaking views of creeks, tributaries and waterways. The beauty is unmatched. Take a grassy, dirt or gravel road off of one of the main roads and soon you’ll find yourself in paradise. It’s so quiet you can hear every bird, cricket, and cicada around. Just watch for a minute or two and you’ll be surprised at the variety of birds you’ll see. The great blue heron dives into the creek and comes out with a mouthful of fish flapping desperately to drop back into the water. The egrets wading at the edge of the marsh patiently waiting to dip in for just the right shrimp. There are deer swimming across the creeks to get to the wooded sidelines before anyone sees them. I see them almost daily out of window. Don’t even be surprised to see a red mama fox leading her two little ones to a new place to sleep the day away. It’s magical, this secret place.
There are beautiful homes here, and not so beautiful ones—but who cares when you get to walk out to your dock, cast your net a few times and catch your own dinner. If that’s too much work, maybe you’ll sit on the dock with a cold glass of ice tea or a cocktail and wait for the sun to slowly drop behind the tree line. Peace! That’s what it is…
