I’ve lived in Charleston for 8 weeks, and never made it to the beach. Unfortunately, I am about a 35 minute drive. But, I have to remind myself, it’s a lot closer than the 13 hour drive I used to have! Today, I spend a couple of hours strolling the beach on Sullivan’s Island. This is probably my favorite beach in the Charleston area because it’s not a large tourist attraction, there are small, charming restaurants and shops, and the people on the beach are mostly locals walking their dogs and kids. Here are moments from a beautiful September evening.
