Ian's Journal

In this webisode, as we left the Santee Lakes area we paddled the historic Upper Cooper River passing by Mepkin Abbey and through Chicken Creek. As we neared the Charleston area the landscape became industrial and I have to admit after three weeks on the river it felt very good to pass the old navy yards of North Charleston and see the Cooper River Bridge in the distance. On Sunday we stopped at the South Carolina Aquarium, meeting the Charleston Kids with Cameras group to discuss historic Charleston Harbor. The next morning we went around the peninsula and up the Ashley River to end our trip at beautiful Magnolia Gardens. We took a tour of the grounds with the middle schoolers from Haute Gap, sharing a great time with them on the river to end our Web of Water adventure.
