I took an overnight road trip with two of my long-time friends. We went to downtown Charleston and enjoyed a lot of things like the vendor market, visiting stores, eating crab cakes and a detour (in cloudy, rainy weather just before sunset) to Folly Beach which is part of Charleston, but about a 15-minute ride from the edge of downtown. I just read on follybeach.com that it is the loggerhead turtle nesting place. Too bad we missed the turtles, maybe next time. Despite the ominous weather, we had a blast and we found some “beach flowers” that were absolutely gorgeous – flowers I’ve never seen before.
