Photos from Edisto Beach, SC

Copyright 2007 Jo O'Keefe All Rights Reserved

This was my final day on Edisto Island. I tasted the beauty of one back road, photographed two beautiful churches and photographed two of the very narrow homes that fascinated me. I would love to return to photograph more of the beauty of Edisto Island, especially wading birds and sunsets. I wanted to see more than the beach, but had little time. These are my final photos. I am indebted to Dan Carter, Executive Director of the Edisto Chamber of Commerce, for directing me to these beautiful sites. As soon as I can, I will make an overall Edisto Island webpage that combines photos from each day I spent there.

Black Skimmers -- There is a colony on the west end of Edisto Beach near St. Helena Sound. After 62 years I have identified a list of things that give me great joy. Black skimmers are among them. Feeding gulls by hand also does although I can't do that and take photos at the same time. Usually I recruit volunteers and teach them how to feed the gulls. On my last three walks I took Cheetos to have the pleasure.
