I feel nostalgia for the pluff mud and I didn't even grow up in the low country.
Plough or Pluff?
Plough AKA Plow: farmers had used this stuff as nutrients for growing in the fields
Pluff: an Onomatopoeia, the word means the sound it makes, “pluff pluff pluff.”
What really baffles me is how you can see the pluff mud in all its glory during the day and it’s, well, real muddy and gross looking and I’ll be thinking I guess it’s not all pretty…and then later on when the sun is close to setting the mud settles with a glossy top-coat, that very poetically reflects the colors of the sky and surroundings. So admittedly yes, even the mud is pretty here.
