I recently had the pleasure of listening to naturalist, Rudy Mancke and writer, Florence Williams speak at an event hosted by The Palmetto Conservation Foundation on the importance of experiencing nature. Having grown up in a family that spent endless hours hunting, fishing, socializing and just playing outside, I have taken it for granted and never stopped to think that not everyone gets that experience, especially in today's crazy rat race. I am keenly aware that getting to spend my time working outside at Wavering Place is a real gift. Shana and I both admit that sometimes when we are having a bad day, we just "go to work" and everything is taken down a few notches. We also really appreciate our clients for supporting our mission in preservation and conservation. If it weren't for them, we would not be able to maintain this beautiful place and in turn share it with others. And so the wheel goes around. Event guests get to experience our unique, native garden and grounds while guests of our Bed and Breakfast will also find world class hiking and biking just down the road. The Congaree National Park and sections of The Palmetto Trail are within a 15 minute drive. Let us be your home base while you venture out for day trips hiking and paddling through these glorious natural resources. We will be sure to leave a copy of Florence Williams' The Nature Fix by the bed so you can learn more about why being in nature makes us so happy!
