Fish Creek

A small tidal creek, noted for its fine flounders, shrimp and crabs, drains Chaplin Plantation directly into the Atlantic Ocean, cutting through the sand dunes and across the sandy beach.  During the 1893 hurricane it is reported that ocean waves flooded Fish Creek, spilling wildly into Broad Creek and cutting the island asunder.
