Exploring Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge aboard the Osprey

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

Because we have so many partnerships with the Cape Romain National Wildlife refuge in terms of turtles and sea and shorebirds, we wanted to take a look at the beautiful resources up that way.  Captain Donnie Buhrmaster, of the Osprey, is also an occasional captain for Dewees Island. He and Captain Lisa and mate Joey provided us with an incredible evening along the waterway.

Dewees Island sits at the southern end of 60 miles of protected shoreline, and together we provide one of the largest tracts of undeveloped and lightly developed land along the eastern seaboard.  We headed north on a spectacular evening with great friends, great food, great captains, and great fun!

The clouds miraculously cleared for the evening, and we boarded on time at the Dewees dock.

Jane P created a fabulous spread of food.

Artus taught grandson Eli to use binoculars.

The stars came out and the full moon rose just as we came back into Dewees inlet.

All in all, it was a magical evening on the waterway. All of the photos can be accessed (and ordered) here.
