The writer is showing his ignorance. There is no such thing as "wasted marsh" It's this attitude that has destroyed so much of SC's valuable coast. The marsh is a nursery where most marine life is born or nurtured. The "wasted" Battery creek marsh is a rich ecosystem that should be protected, not developed. If this truly is the writers attitude, I would be happy to provide him a map on how to get back to Ohio and I'll even chip in on the gas if he promises never to return.
