I just returned from a short family vacation on Edisto Beach in South Carolina. The weather was absolutely glorious with sunny 70+ degree days and moderate nighttime temperatures. My routine each morning consisted of rising early, before anyone else was stirring, to brew a pot of coffee and watch the sunrise. I generally poured my first cup into an insulated thermos and headed for the beach. We rented a small beachfront cottage that made access to the shoreline exceptional as well as providing us with a front row seat to the sunrise! What a great way to start the day! I walked for an hour each morning along the shoreline – taking photos and enjoying the antics of the shorebirds and the flying skills of the brown pelicans as they skimmed the surface of the water in search of food. For the rest of the week, I’ll share some of my photographs and adventures of the trip!
