EDISTO BEACH, S.C. — The curled silvery Spanish moss dangles from the limbs of the live oaks forming a canopy over South Carolina Highway 174 — the shaded passageway signaling to me I’ve almost arrived at my home away from home.

With each mile, familiar points of interest come into view – the Pr...

  1. Charmain, A GRAND-SLAMMER, YOU “HIT IT OUT OF THE PARK, WITH BASES LOADED”! As one reads and looks at the different pictures of the sea, beach, shells, birds, and sunset, YOU WERE LOADING THE BASES…THEN, THE HOME RUN, the video of the shark!!! Again, A GRAND-SLAM HOME RUN! You are a pro! Keep on, keeping on, such articles as this is another great reason for us to continue to press our friends TO SUBSCRIBE TO theaugustapress.com! THANK YOU!
    Made my morning!

  2. My wife and I are earnestly want to go to a “new” beach. Hilton Head is just too crammed with inconsiderate people, traffic, and bustle! We want to go to a beach, just for the beach itself. But we have no idea where to park or go or anything. Is there a website that could help us get started?
    Thanks!

  3. I admire your ability to keep quiet while that baby shark was trying ever so much to just take a bite out of you! When I was in Banff on my honeymoon years ago I filmed the mountains, with an actual 8mm camera, and didn’t say a word. My wife (ex now) got mad at me for being too quiet! Oh well.

    • I promise you that when we go a try it out, whether we like it or not, we will not praise or complain about it. I’ve been too many, many away football games and know how it is to have “secret” place to eat or to tailgate!

  4. I make it a policy not to comment on anything in our newspaper, but Charmain, I have to break that policy, you have outdone yourself! Those photos are breathtaking. I am so proud to see you blossom as the head of both our newsroom and our cultural and arts coverage. Those pictures are just stunning, absolute photojournalism and in my opinion, art.

  5. Thanks Charmain – beautifully done ! A very nice, relaxing article – readers can sense the serenity of a “nature lover’s slice of paradise”. Your professional journalism captures the wonderful essence of Edisto.
