Looking Back: Trip to Edisto Island, South Carolina

April 14, 2011

Today we left with the tide at 7am. The water and sky had been painted in a pastel rainbow. The water was still in the calm of the morning. Manatee noses and dolphin fins peeked from the surface. Spinny was back out on the deck with me, looking out for her sea going distant cousins.

The boat at the dock.

The rest of the trip was uneventful. By 3pm we had made it to the mouth of the Edisto River Sound. My nerves tingled slightly with excitement. This is the island my family has been coming to for spring break since I was seven, and I get to see it from the ocean instead of simply from shore.

We docked at the Edisto Marina a little ways down the river. Spin made a friend with the dock master’s dog. Kris and I rode the bikes down the tree lined Jungle Road to the Waterfront Restaurant for dinner. It was a longer but lovely ride.

Tomorrow my mom will be heading down to join us here at Edisto. I’m looking forward to her visit as I haven’t seen her in over 2 months!
