“I’ve got peace like a river in my soul.” – African American SpiritualLiving in a place where I can actually see the rivers flowing to the ocean reminds me every day that water, so gently, flows to the sea… where all things start and end. This photograph is from the McKinley Washington Jr. Bridge, on the newly designated National Scenic Byway, the 16 mile highway 174, over this bridge, to Edisto Island, the last undeveloped barrier island in South Carolina, a place where peace lives. The ribbon cutting was Saturday, and was celebrated with much adieu!

“Moved by the sacred places of this historic land called the Lowcountry, I am here in spirit and I hope to infect you with my love of this place.” I for one am officially infected!!! We are coming down in May and I can’t wait!

This is wonderful. Keep these coming. I love to see these pictures and read your stories. This was my childhood beach, and beyond. So many good memories, family, friends, shabby beach house, wonderful food, week long rummy games! Memories flooding into me! Thank you, Charlotte!
