On our way to Port Royal, we stopped at Fort Fremont on St. Helena Island, South Carolina. It was built at the beginning of the Spanish-American War to protect the U.S. Naval Station in Port Royal.
Since no part of the Spanish-American War took place in the States, the fort never engaged in battle.
Port Royal was a disappointment, as I expected stories of Pirates and Swashbucklers.
Being the first settlement on the continent, I also expected elegant homes.
However, there was an oyster festival going on, and I got to shuck my first oyster. A skill omitted in my traditional upbringing.
On our way back home, it is weird calling a trailer home, we stopped at The Cypress Wetlands of Port Royal.
