Litchfield Beach – Litchfield, South Carolina

South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Georgetown County Photos  |  Litchfield Beach

Lovely Litchfield Beach is located just north of Pawleys Island. The area was settled in the early 1700s and its name comes from Litchfield Plantation, a former rice plantation in the community.

Below, a tiny loggerhead turtle – the South Carolina state reptile – makes its way towards the ocean at North Litchfield Beach. The turtle and its nest were being monitored by the South Carolina United Turtle Enthusiasts (SCUTE), a nonprofit group dedicated to turtle conservation in both Georgetown and Horry counties. A scute is also the term for the bony plate on a turtle’s shell.

Reflections on Litchfield Beach

Photographer Michaele Duke writes: “There are many inviting places to explore while in Litchfield. The early morning light complements a pathway while the soft sounds of the surf rolling onto shore call out for a barefoot stroll.”

SCIWAY visitor Elizabeth Cranmer of Lexington also says that the best things about Litchfield are “the pull of the ocean waves, the sounds of the water and birds, the smells of the coast, the view of the Atlantic, and the feel of salt and sand on your skin.”

Turtle conservationist and photographer Lisa Schneider shares of her above photo: “I belong to SCUTE, and this was my very first time doing a nest inventory. This little guy was the only one in the nest.”

Looks like Jim Harrison’s “Pathway to the Beach”
