SINHG members have been on the road and on the water during a busy month for the group’s signature SINHG Trips. A dozen members enjoyed a peaceful early spring kayak tour of Echaw Creek, a little known waterway within the ACE Basin’s national forest, famous for its “walking” cypresses. Earlier in the month, ten members learned about a catastrophic chapter in downtown’s history during a two-hour “Great Earthquake” tour of historic Charleston, stopping at key locations most affected by the devastation of the 1886 quake. Another group of SINHG members enjoyed a five-course “Death By Chocolate” dinner at downtown’s State Street dining room, each chocolate-derived course accompanied by ghostly tales from Charleston’s past, from the city’s most famous serial killer to the restless souls of the city’s 1854 yellow fever epidemic.
SINHG Trips continue through May. An autumn schedule of trips is under development.
