Folly Beach in July

One of the thrills of going to Charleston, SC, is going to Folly Beach on James Island.


It’s my favorite beach. Not that my sheltered country girl self has been to many beaches. But this is my favorite so far. It’s where The Captain and I spent our honeymoon. So it has a special place in my heart.

We like to walk down Folly Road and check out all the little stores. Listen to the music of an open air bar.


Then, play in the water of the Atlantic Ocean.

I like to walk along the beach in search of the perfect seashell.

And in search of the perfect picture.

I like the feel of the sand between my toes, the wind blowing my hair and the ocean water lapping around my legs. It’s peaceful and serene.

It’s God’s beauty. And it reminds you who is in control.

This is what is left of a structure after hurricane Hugo blew through.

You can no longer build on this end of the island. And swimming is not allowed here due to strong currents.

I could sit on the beach for hours. Listening to the wind, the waves lapping, the birds singing and children playing. It’s when I am most at peace.

Where are you most at peace?

The beach, the mountains or another quiet retreat?
