Waccamaw River, Wacca Wache Landing

by bgvt

Trip Overview

On a beautiful, sunny, extremely windy day, I followed a boat landing sign to find this. There was enough rough water in the middle of the river to make crossing - especially as I was solo - unappealing. I went south, and turned in to the first creek; it was very small, with a reasonable amount of current, and went a surprising distance. I surprised a pair of wood storks, saw a swallow-tailed kite, and great blue and little green herons, and a rather large turtle. Irises were in bloom, and the cypress' feathery foliage leafed out overhead. But I had many more miles to go to make it to Morehead City, NC, so didn't spend the time this place deserves.
