The Lowcoutry region around Charleston is very different from the Bluegrass of Kentucky that Ashley and I grew up in. One of the biggest differences are the cypress marshes — an ecosystem that's unique to coastal South Carolina and Georgia. Here are some pictures of the Lowcountry marshes we've visited, taken from my Instagram.
