I spent last week at the beach, on Edisto Island, a barrier island off the coast of South Carolina, south of Charleston. Edisto Beach is a quiet place, well off the beaten track. There are no high-rise hotels, no amusement parks, no movie theaters, just a few restaurants and only a couple of souvenir shops. But it has a glorious beach. Except for the first couple of days, the weather was near-perfect, warm enough to make strolling on the beach and paddling in the water pleasant, but not sizzling hot.
We ate lots of seafood, spent time reading while sitting on the deck soaking up the sunlight and the sea breeze. Slept well with the sound of the ocean soothing us. More to come. There was a lot of interesting wildlife and things found on the beach.
