Walk on the beach and learn along the way.

Serenity Sea Stroll & Stretch

Yet another fun, new beach activity sponsored by the nice folks at the IOP Recreation Department.... and it's right nearby our Isle of Palms vacation rentals!

It’s a social walk along the ocean, as ocean life experts share educational tid-bits.

Here’s how new Recreation Director Karrie Ferrell describes it: “Salt air, soothing waves, sunshine, and friends!  What a wonderful way to get moving in the morning and prepare for the day. The Recreation Department is so excited to offer this no cost program for all. As we stroll along our beautiful Isle of Palms beach, the instructor will provide" information about the sea life we encounter on the journey.

The Serenity Sea Stroll & Learn is happening the second Thursday morning of the month at 7:30 a.m., right on the beach overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.  They started out just offering it in July and August, but it's proven so popular, they've added dates through November.
