Hilton Head, South Carolina

The most beautiful view in Hilton Head? Dining on the deck of the Old Oyster Factory, where all of these photos were taken.

Truly, I’ve never seen anything like it. Multi-level outdoor seating surrounded on all sides by nothing but marsh. We found ourselves whispering unconsciously during dinner as if our breaths had literally been taken away or as if we thought we’d disturb the wilderness that we were privileged to step into.

A story beneath us, a reef of oysters waited for the tide to rise so they could unclamp their shells. We even saw a cat (a cat!) swim clear across the river and disappear into the grass on the other side. Only a stately white house in the distance reminded us that people lived nearby, that and our waiter breaking our spell with the occassional crab cake and glass of wine. (Speaking of, the food was excellent.)

If you ever have the chance to go, aim to be there during sunset. Then you’ll really see the most beautiful view in Hilton Head.
