Boneyard Beach is named for the driftwood that is pulled in on the tide and deposited on the beach to be bleached bone white by the sun, salt and sand. It's a quick 30-minute excursion from Isle of Palms Marina and well worth the trip. The island really lights up as the sun sets, drawing long shadows on the "bones" that litter the beach.
We visited Southport for the first time last weekend. It was a quintessential North Carolina coastal town with a waterfront stretch of a dozen restaurants and bars. We had a great time relaxing with the kids and Lori's parents and even ran into some old friends who used to be our neighbors 15 years ago (Hi Dena & Lisa!).
There must be hundreds of Disney photographers throughout the parks on any given day. Some you notice and some you don't. On our last trip to Hollywood Studios, there was one photographer that you couldn't miss. As we were leaving during a lull in the afternoon, Jaide was absolutely owning Main Street, posing with her hands on her hips right in the middle of it all. I imagine most photographers would have been happy for a few minutes of peace but she was showing everyone exactly what a great Main Street photo could look like rather than waiting for somebody to approach her.
