This sunset view was taken from Skull Creek at Hilton Head Island over the Calibogue Sound. The Sound is a section of the federally controlled Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway. The Waterway extends some 1,400 miles from Miami, Florida, to Norfolk, Virginia.
Of all the barrier islands protecting the Atlantic coast, the longest is Long Island, New York. The second longest is Hilton Head Island. (Photo courtesy, the author)
