Life's a Beach

Edisto Sunset

We spent last week at Edisto Beach. We rented a house with a few of our friends. It’s the first time in a long time that I’ve spent so much vacation time in one place, and it was very relaxing. The weather was decent, the kids loved the beach, and cooking for each other, we ate better than if we had gone to restaurants. Sharing a house is pretty inexpensive too. I found time for some photography, kayaking, swimming in the ocean, and heated battles of NCAA Football on the PS2.

One day we took the kids to the South Carolina Aquarium in Charleston, which I think I enjoyed more than they did.

Mike's Shark

One neighbor brought his boat and we went out on St. Helena Sound for some saltwater fishing, which I’ve never tried before. The first day we all caught stingrays; the second day we all caught sharks. Certainly fun to see what you can pull out of the deep. We took pictures and put them all back.

Thanks to my friends who made it a fun week and I hope we can all do it again sometime.
