You know that old saying “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all?” That will explain why this review of Poinsett State Park is shorter than most reviews. The good things? It has some really lovely hiking trails. The camping sites are large and well-maintained. And it’s the closest state park to Congaree National Park, which was why we were here.

52 Frames: Catching Up (Again)
I’m still on a weekly streak with my 52 Frames challenges, but I am a bit remiss in sharing them here. So let’s look at the last month or so of challenge images. This is a lightweight post, folks, so sit back and enjoy them on a screen bigger than your phone and enjoy that you don’t have to do much reading if you want to skip the words and just look at the pretty pictures.

I’ve been to this state park twice, and each time I wonder why I didn’t stay longer, always on my way to somewhere else. It’s a nice park, quiet, smallish, and right on a lake. A lake with gators.

In case you’re wondering that works out to 13 feet and 4 inches of gator that came out of Lake Blackshear here.
Love Letter to Site 11
There are 60 sites at Modoc Campground in South Carolina, and 59 of them have electricity. Site 11 does not. In the middle of a Southeastern summer, that would be a definite drawback. In Spring, though, it might be cold but with a good battery and a propane heater, you’d be all right. Every time I camped at Modoc, my heart wanted Site 11 but it was either too hot or someone else had reserved it before I could. Last week, I finally got it. Breeze and I went all in on Site 11 for five amazing days.
