Edisto Island

One of my favorite places in the whole wide world is Edisto Island, SC. Of course, I haven't traveled the whole wide world, nor do I have a desire to. I'm a creature of habit. I love going to Myrtle Beach every year. I'd love to go to Cape Cod every year. If I could only go to one place, it would be Edisto Island. If you read Pat Conroy novels, they take place in the South Carolina low country. The land of Live Oaks and Spanish Moss and creeks and marshes and beaches. That's Edisto. It's about an hour from Charleston. The island, accessible from a land bridge, has one gas station and a little Piggly Wiggly grocery store. People who rent at the beach probably can't imagine why anyone would rent a creek-front house. Well, check out my pics and you'll see why. Click on the Tabblo to biggify. I've been there twice with my GA sister and her family. The house belongs to a friend of theirs, but they don't rent it out. My brother-in-law has to ask and he's reluctant to do so. I would drop everything to go there again. The property has been in the family for 6 generations. The plantation house is just down the creek. It's magical.

Why am I thinking about Edisto? You've heard enough about the snow, that's why. You don't want to hear about how plow operations have been suspended because of white-out conditions. Right? Right.

Yesterday, I called the lady that works the front desk at the hotel we stay at in MB. I just had to tell her how much I hate snow!

Awesome, no wonder you love it there. Are you able to get around in the snow? Are business's open in your area?

Hang in, spring has to show up.

Very beautiful. Hope you get to go there again!

We are getting the snow today. Even Starbucks closed down.

You are so very lucky to have this available for you. The pictures are out of this world wonderful. I could be happy living in SC's Low Country.

Hang in there. Surely the snow will end soon. Thinking happy thoughts for you.

Simply beautiful! Thanks for the virtual mini vacation - I needed a break from ice, snow, and wind.

I love the South. So much history and a much slower way of life. Love the spanish moss.

Those are such beautiful pictures! I've read novels set in that area too - sounds like such a neat place. Your snow pictures are pretty amazing too though.

I love your new template! Where did you get it? I'm feeling a need for a change too.

Hugs!

I've been thinking of warm, sunny places too . . . and we don't have anything like your amount of snow.
