Brookgreen Gardens

While visiting a friend in Murrrells Inlet, SC, we went to Brookgreen Gardens, a sculpture garden and wildlife preserve, located just south of Murrells Inlet, in South Carolina. The 9,100-acre property includes several themed gardens featuring American figurative sculptures, the Lowcountry Zoo, and trails through several ecosystems in nature reserves on the property.

In October, 2015, I visited again.  I arrived for the last day or two of the storm system from Hurricane Joaquin.  The airport cleared in time to land.  Roads, ponds, streams, boat launch ramps, etc. were flooded.

These dunes usually tapered gently onto the beach.  But the storm washed away much of the sand.  Several houses which faced the beach were left with a six to ten foot drop to the beach.
