offering all facilities; cabins. Hunting, fishing, horse-

back riding can be enjoyed. The extensive gardens of

azaleas, roses annuals and rare tropical flowers are par-

ticularly interesting. Admission 25

The Cotee River, famed in text and brush, flowing

from hidden springs about 15 mi inland, passes through

the town, and for miles the winding tropical river front-

age is dotted with small homes and estates. Native vari-

colored phosphate rock, taken from the high banks, is used

much for building purposes. Boat troops can be arranged

and the fishing is as inviting as the scenery. The wide

US Highway 19 follows the river for more than two miles.

Along it, huge magnolia trees, in bloom during the spring

are worth seeing.
