Homer and I visited Edisto Beach, South Carolina in October 2010 and were lucky enough to stay in a beach-front house. Each morning the waves rushed in as we sipped our coffee. I ran down to the beach with my tripod on this particular morning and got this shot (and my feet wet!)

Taken with a Panasonic 12X zoom compact camera.

Edisto Island is a beautiful, quiet family vacation spot with a rich history. The first known occupants of Edisto Island were the Edistow Indians, members of the Cusabo family of tribes. The Spanish arrived in the 1500’s with the English settlers following in the 1600’s. Planters grew rich producing Sea Island Cotton during the 1700’s until after the Civil War. Many of the plantation sites are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism offers a wonderful vacation experience at Edisto Beach State Park with camping facilities, cabins, nature trails and much more.

    Very beautiful Tibby, love your exposure!! – sounds like a lovely place to visit!!

  • Thanks so much, Kate. We discovered Edisto just a few years ago even though I grew up in South Carolina and have decided it’s THE place to be. Very family oriented and quiet.
