It was a pretty awesome week!


  1. You sure saw some beautiful sights, Mary! So happy y'all had a fun time!

  2. We have been to Charleston and Folly Beach twice, for a week each time. It is such a beautiful place to vacation. Your photos are stunning, and it looks like you had a wonderful time!

  3. It seemed like a great way to spend fall break!


  4. Last year, as part of my 50th jubilee celebration I took a bus trip to Charleston and Savannah. Absolutely loved it! Thanks for the book tips--I'll add them to my list of books to look for. Always glad for recommendations!

  5. I want to be there sharing in your adventures, they look like so much fun! Thank you for all the photos, I enjoyed looking at them and you set up such a beautiful campsite and it looks like you eat pretty good meals too!

  6. Mary! What a break! This is just awesome and boy do I covet you and your camping time!!!!

  7. I love the beach!

    We are hoping to move to Wilmington, N.C. next summer.
    So we'll be right close to the beach...love, love, love
