Welcome to my weekly update for February 27, 2022!
We finally had warm, sunny weather this week. It felt heavenly! On Sunday, we went to the Caw Caw Interpretive Center, a county park that has trails through several different ecosystems. It’s a wildlife refuge but in late winter, we didn’t see many animals. Apparently there’s an exhibit about the Stono River Slave Rebellion in the gift shop but we were in such a hurry to hit the trails, we missed it.
