If you live on the East Coast of the United States and want to see something completely different without traveling very far, look no further than the Waccamaw River in South Carolina.
The water is still and tranquil creating reflected images of the trees on the waters surface.
The trees grow right out of the water! It will be 20 feet deep right up next to the trees.
In the trees lives a plethora of creatures that you can view and listen to from the safety and comfort of your boat.
Remants of old rice fields are now covered in golden grasses that shine from between the trees.
The scenery around you might make you wonder how you got here because it looks like something out of a dream!
The water ranges from black (because of all the decomposing leaf matter) to brown following a heavy rain.
We spent several days leisurely going down this river, taking in all the sights that we could.
When you feel like stopping, all you need to do is drop the anchor and relax.
The Waccamaw River has definitely been a highlight of our trip so far!
