Can you tell I'm a teacher by my headline? Well, yes. But, I went as a tourist on the jeep tour rather than a teacher. The great thing was that I learned plenty about the fascinating Myrtle Beach and South Carolina lowcountry area in the best way. This tour was geared to entertainly share history, nature and all the folk/ghostlore from the area. The jeep we went on held 14 passengers when we took the tour. We had a guide on with us who knew his stuff! He also made it fun and engaged with the different backgrounds and interests of the people who went along with us. I had no idea of the depth of history in this particular area of the world. The diversity of plant life and ecosystems (a lagoon, swamp, salt marsh) and the alligators and birds were most special. We saw an osprey catch a fish right in front of us. The barrier island featured planter's homes from the 19th century and slave cabins along with some lovely scenery. Have to say I adored the graveyard with the hanging most and ancient trees. The story of the ghost of a young woman was interesting and moving. We liked this tour tremendously. Great chance for good photographs (we have plenty) and a look away from the regular beat of the area.
