05:26:13 – Mouth of Great Pee Dee, SC


I took a sunset paddle up the Waccamaw River to have a look at the mouth of the Great Pee Dee River. The tide was low and it exposed the remains of the rice planter’s docks that were built prior to the civil war. The river bank was lined with marsh reeds and groves of cypress trees. Beyond was a strip of land covered in thick woods. I thought about camping up in there one night. I left the Pee Dee and crossed over to the other side of the Waccamaw and paddled back along the shore as the sun set. On the next visit I plan to take a full day and push up the Pee Dee to explore a WMA.
