Headed down the road....Edisto Island.  #edisto #sclowcountry #trees #endofday  #beauty #islandsofsc
A different type of sunrise for #sunrisesunday today. This is blue hour on Pawleys Island. Blue hour lighting hits different. Especially in places like this where there's such a vastness to the sky and you can see a gradient from stars to blues to the earliest purples from the sun's first rays in the sky, long before it even crests the horizon. Added benefit, no one in their right mind wakes up this early to be out an hour before sunrise. Except for me, that is. So, with my gas station coffee in hand, I get to enjoy this beautiful beach without another soul around. Just me, the waves, and the noseeums aggressively attacking me.
Beautiful Hinting Island State Park Sunset.

The shore gently recedes beneath the stunning Pawleys Island Pier. The unique island town, located about 25 miles south of Myrtle Beach and 70 miles north of Charleston, exudes laid-back, beachy vibes. Locals have definitely adopted an island state of mind and encourage visitors to as well. When you go, make sure to relax on the beach, explore the famous sand dunes, or fish in one of the many adjacent creeks.⏰ Best time of the day to visit: We guarantee that you’re going to want to spend a whole day here. We recommend getting to the beach at around 10am.🗓️ Best time of the year: Pawleys Island has the best weather during the spring and early summer months.🏖️ Things to do while there: Pawleys Island Nature Park, Pawleys Island Chapel, Hopsewee Plantation.🐠 Things to visit in the area: Brookgreen Gardens (brookgreen_gardens), take a walking ghost tour, Myrtle Beach (mymyrtlebeach), Harborwalk Marina, South Carolina Maritime Museum (southcarolinamaritimemuseum).🏨 Where to stay: The Oceanfront Litchfield Inn (oceanfrontlitchfieldinn), Litchfield Beach and Golf Resort (litchfieldbeachandgolf), Sea View Inn (seaviewinn), 620 Prince (620prince).Photo by qcphotographer

"The Beach in Winter Is Still the Beach"
-Melinda MorgensternAt the bottom of this post are the top 6 reasons why we love the beach in winter.*My husband and I love a winter beach getaway! We both needed this time away to press pause and to unwind from the last twelve months and to prepare for a major home project that we have coming up.
We boarded our kitty and drove from central North Carolina to our favorite getaway spot in the lowcountry of South Carolina, at Isle of Palms. We are staying in Wild Dunes (at IOP) for five nights to rest and rejuvenate. Yay!Starting tomorrow (Saturday) until we return on Thursday, we are unplugging and unwinding. No working, no business and no social media. I may even delete my social media apps from my phone so I won't be tempted. When I return home, I will ease back into things and be more mindful of my time and how I use it (in all areas of my life). I hope this time away will help me recenter and come home refreshed and ready for the next steps in my personal art practice and for the new collaborative things I'm planning to share with the collage community at large. I plan to send out my first Studio News email to my subscribers near the end of January. If you would like to receive occasional updates directly in your inbox, and you are not already a subscriber, you can signup with the link in my bio.*Why we love getting away to the beach in winter:
1. There are no crowds anywhere
2. It is so much quieter (and more romantic)
3. You almost have the beach to yourself (which is great for long walks or sitting and reading as you listen to the waves)
4. The local year-round restaurants and shops are uncrowded, so you can mingle with the locals who are more relaxed and friendlier in the off-season
5. It feels way more relaxing
6. The rates for accommodations are WAY less expensive than during the peak summer season (so you can spring for a much nicer place located even closer to the beach).Ten-four. Signing off...
Fort Fremont was built in 1899 by the Army Corps of Engineers using local labor on condemned private property on St. Helena Island, across the Beaufort River from the Naval Station. It was designed to play a vital role in the protection of the strategic dry dock and coaling station which remained critical to the Atlantic Fleet during the Spanish American War period.
