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.
I'm ready for a trip back to Wild Dunes. Even if it's just a weekend, I'll take it!
I spot five pools in this photograph, not including the beach... perfect!
When I was a kid, the only thing that would have been in this photograph was the old restaurant, called Edgar's, and an even older, open air beach pavilion full of windsurfboards and two-person Sunfish sailboats.
Hurricane Hugo devastated Isle of Palms but they rebuilt it like the Six Million Dollar Man. From the ashes of Hugo, all of this grew.
This photograph was captured with a DJI Phantom 3 Professional drone.
Who is going to the beach this weekend? I took this aerial photograph of Figure Eight Island on a brisk January day a few months ago and we were just about the only people on the island. I guess this qualifies as a selfie — I'm on the back deck of the house directly behind the little marsh beach on the second row.
I imagine Figure Eight Island is going to be a really fun place to be this weekend as everybody jets out to the coast for some R&R!
