Today, March 13, 2008, my friend Helon and I launched from Folly Beach boat landing for a circumnavigation of Long Island. We paddled down Folly River, then turned into Long River. On the map, you will see that we paddled around Oak Island before continuting on our journey.
Long Island, marked on the map, is slated for development. When we paddled past, we saw a 4-wheeler parked near the shore plus boards and skids ready for the landing party that didn't want to get their feet wet.
