Saturday Morning in Charleston

At 7:15 AM, the sun had made its place in the sky, there is a nice soothing breeze and the temperature has settled in the low to mid 70’s.  A perfect way to make an official start to the weekend.  We decided on Folly Beach and Sunrise Park to take in some sun and fresh air.  We took some pictures to help you be a part of our journey.

It is even a little too early for the lifeguards to be out on Folly Beach.

It is not too early for the fisherman on the pier.

You are never lost on Folly as long as you stay on the Center.  Center Street that is….

We saw many beautiful Southern homes on our drive to Sunrise Park.  All ordained with rocking chairs, palmetto trees, porch fans and windows for all the eye to see.

Not only does this beach offer a beautiful distant view of the Charleston peninsula and the Cooper River Bridge, but it is untainted as we witnessed over a dozen crabs crawling all around.  Wear your flip flops and be careful for the fire ants in the grass.  They sting.

From the distance you can see the peninsula.

Some locals just want to escape the crowds and catch a little dinner.

The sun is now bright in the sky.  All this before 10 AM.  What a nice way to start the weekend.  The lesson here is that some of the most memorable places in Charleston are hidden away just far enough from the tourists and kept preserved for us to enjoy.
