The preserve is
located at Land's
End on St. Helena Island, a mere half hour or so from here, and they made a day
of it, soaking up some early morning sun, picnicking on the beach, and then spending the rest of the afternoon exploring the ruins.
There are all sorts of doorways that lead through a maze of rooms and little compartments, and some of the doors actually still work.
The place is open to the public, but you wander at your own risk. As you can see, there are sections where the corrugated ceiling has rotted, causing the concrete overhead to fall. Mom and dad forgot to bring a flashlight with them, but I heard them
talking about going back today to check out more of the dark sections they couldn't see into.
Better them than me!
The site is pretty well preserved, but it's unfortunate that people feel the need to deface such places with graffiti the way they have here.

The happy wanderers got back late in the day, toting a movie, a six pack, and a slight sunburn, and spent the rest of this beautiful day relaxing. Like they worked hard or something!
