While exploring the general Charleston area, we discovered Kiawah Island, and 'strand feeding' Atlantic Bottlenose dolphins. These dolphins feed along the Kiawah River, creeks and inlets, in a manner unique to coastal regions in South Carolina and Georgia. A group of dolphins herd a school of fish or shrimp to the water's edge and toss them up onto the shore. The dolphins then launch their bodies onto the shore to feed. I missed getting a picture of this but the video here shows how they do it.
Unfortunately, the weather has not been cooperating. Rain, rain and more rain continue to put a damper on our attempts at outdoor activities. We're going to continue heading north. Planning on a few weeks in the Chesapeake Bay region.
