Charleston is known not only for their historic architecture in Downtown, but also their picturesque beaches! The next two photos are from last night. I posted so many photos yesterday, I thought I’d save a couple of them for today!
Since Alexa was driving, I was able to take a photo while crossing the Arthur Ravenel, Jr. Bridge at sunset!
As we were driving across another bridge, I asked if we could stop because the view was breathtaking…
Sunday morning we went to Yoga! It wasn’t quite what I expected. The instructor was a lovely lady and she gave us a good workout, but she had very strong views on not killing anything, including animals for the purpose of eating them. During most of the 1 hour and 45 minute session, she either lectured or played tapes loudly espousing the negative karma associated with doing so! I still enjoyed it…because I’m learning how to take what I want from situations and leave the rest. I told Alexa I was in the mood for Steak and Shrimp after we exited the building (hee, hee)! Actually, I was a vegetarian for about six months a few years ago. Who knows, I may try it again!
We stopped at Harris Teeter, a local grocery store and purchased produce for a nice luncheon salad. And we picked out a juicy roasted chicken and asparagus for dinner! After lunch we drove to Sullivans Island…about 15 minutes from her condo and took a three-mile walk along the beach. Here are some of the photos from our jaunt.
How did they come up with a fine of $1040?
We both loved the foot prints in the sand. Not sure why they look raised, but we like it!
Here’s Alexa…I asked her to stand for a reflection shot…
She pointed out all of the birds surrounding a shrimping boat…
There were also a pod of Dolphins very close to the shore, frolicking in the water, that we enjoyed watching! I don’t have a photo though!
After leaving the Island, we stopped at a Red Box and picked up the movie “Magic Mike”! We both had heard a lot of positive reviews, but after watching it, felt it was a bit cheesy, although we did appreciate their physiques!
It was a nice Sunday and tomorrow I leave for Savannah! I’ve really enjoyed my time here in Charleston and with Alexa! I’m trying to play matchmaker, because she’s single, beautiful, intelligent, and personable!

Girl, you … and your camera take the breath out of me every time … love the footprint photo. How did you do that ?????
Alejandro explained it pretty well. Thanks Viveka!!
That second photo is fabulous. Now wonder you had to stop.
Thanks Jo!! 🙂
Since the sand you were walking on is close to the shoreline, it’s very wet and acts more like a solid than a liquid. After being compressed downward, it rises back up somewhat. If you stood there for a much longer time, though, they’d appear more sunken – until they fille up with water.
I think the $1,040 figure is to make people look twice and perhaps try to take it seriously.
I love vegetarians. I eat one almost every day. 🙂
Looking at them…they didn’t appear to be raised. Something with the photography changed it. I think you’re right about the dollar amount! You’re funny…eating vegetarians!!
I should have emphasized that footprints on very wet sand create something of an optical illusion. But, you’re right – the angle of the camera and the way the light hits it helps to play tricks on your vision. At least you had fun! I haven’t been to a beach in years. Just walking along the shoreline is always a soothing activity.
That’s a shame about not having been in years! I hope you get to go soon!!

The photo of the bridge is just AMAZING 🙂
Thanks very much!!
Those first two photos are amazing and I am really intrigues with the footprints one. Maybe someone will let us know how/why that happens.
I was a vegetarian for several years. It was probably the worse thing I ever did for my health.
Thanks Michelle…looks like Alejandro knows about the footprints!
I have enjoyed the stay in Charleston… those first two photos are stunners… wow, really good.. I love the way you captured that bridge…
Thanks for coming along…(smile)!
