I visited the beautiful Boneyard Beach on Bulls Island which is a barrier island in Charleston, SC. It is home to one of the cleanest and healthiest ecosystems in the US. The changing tides and currents combined with the salt, sand and sun have caused great erosion on this part of the island producing an eerie "bone yard" of sun bleached fallen oaks, pines, cedars and palmettos. It is a battle with the ever changing surf and it has been estimated that in 60 years these barrier islands will cease to exist. Is is heartbreaking to imagine such a peaceful place as this being gone.
I was in quiet awe when my eyes landed upon Boneyard Beach. It was absolutely breathtaking...the sights, sounds and the feeling of peaceful calmness as the waves crashed upon the broken shoreline. My photos taken with my cell phone don't even come close to capturing the breathtaking beauty of God's handiwork. I have never seen or experienced anything as stunning in nature and feel blessed to have stood on that gorgeous beach. I definitely did not have enough time on this little peace of earth..I found it hard to fully take in its beauty and greatness.
It was so hard to leave trying to remember everything, to soak in every ounce of beauty, to attempt to take just a sliver of that peace home with me. I will always want to go back of that I am sure.
