Show us your life Friday.....Vacation spot

I am joining Kelly's Friday link party-Show us your life. I can't wait to see all the great places. You can, too, if you go here.
This week, we're sharing our favorite vacation spot(s).
I actually have two favorite places.
First because we go more often is Charleston, SC.
We have alot of friends that live there and it's pretty close. We also got married there, on Sullivan's Island, in front of the lighthouse. You can read about that lighthouse here.
And you can see more about our wedding here.
This was a house we passed walking down the walkway to the beach. Can't you picture yourself sitting there in that swing with a nice glass of wine, or cup of coffee.

And there is nothing like the sunset at Shem Creek. I just love seeing the shrimp boats as the sun sets. I wonderful place to stay is the Shem Creek Inn. It overlooks the creek and has restaurants within walking distance.

Of course, I would be remiss if I didn't mention our new favorite vacation spot, Edisto Beach SC. You can read a little more about our vacation here.
This was the view from our house. So relaxing.
As the sunset.
This was actually from the front of our house.
We took our boat and went out to the marshes one day. We saw dolphins jumping-sorry I don't have a picture of them (close up that is) but I was so amazed by them, I just watched and didn't snap.
Here is a view of the marsh.
A previous renter had left us this sand dollar. We left it for the next family.
As I said we loved Edisto.
Well, for the most part that is.......

Thanks for stopping in!

Thanks for the comment. Love your pics too. We were thinking about Folly but son really wanted Myrtle Beach. I do plan on a few other places up that coase, like Emerald Isle, Folley, Carolina Beach, and places hopefully with less people. Your children are beautiful

Reid, saw your note on Polyshades & yes, it will be sticky for awhile. 2 hrs. is not enough dry time. Let it sit at least overnight. Oil based takes longer to dry. Test a larger area & see what you think. It worked great for me. I used throw away brushes so I wouldn't have to wash them, so you might need to get a smaller brush to get close to the wall. I had a few spatters but nothing major. Good luck with it!
