Edisto Beach

We have been wanting to try Edisto Beach State Park for quite a while. Back in February I tried to make reservations for a beach campsite and was only able to get a few week days. Thats when we decided to go to Charleston for the weekend then move to the beach.

Edisto is a beautiful place. As you enter the campground ther are many sites that are suitable for tents or small campers. Then the campground opens up and there is a loop with a number of campsites that are near the beach. Even the sites that are not on the beach, are no more than a hundred yards away, so you can't go wrong here.

We left OPC at about 10 AM and arrived at Edisto SP at about 11. But check in time is not until 2:00 we were told. The registrar let us unhook the Tracker and go check out the site we had reserved; #44. Yea.. it was empty. The previous campers were already gone, so we could move in.

Backing in was no problem and in no time we were on the beach trying out our new umbrella. Pam bought it at the Umbrella Factory near Rockingham NC and it worked great. Hopefully it will last quite a while.

It was rather windy so late afternoon brought a slight chill with the wind comming off the water. We decided to go ride around the island a little and check out a place to get some seafood. Again I call on Roadfood.com and Michael Stern's strong recommendation of the Old Post Office.

This is an outstanding upscale restaurant with top notch food. Crabcakes were great! It is a meal to remember.

After another cruise around this beautiful island, it was back to our campsite for a late walk on the beach and watching the sunset over the salt marsh right behind our camper. What a beautiful campground this is!

Tuesday was another beautiful day, and we literally spent the whole day on the beach. Reading, watching the Dolphins, talking to other campers, looking at the shrimp boats fising. That night we fired up the charcoal grill for hamburgers and a veggie burger for you know who.

I haven't said much about Bobbi on this trip. Edisto is such a natural place, there were birds of all kinds in the air and on the ground that kept her occupied all day. Her spot is in the front window where she can keep an eye on everything going on. At night, she likes the same spot but she is between the window shade and the window so she can see the activities in the campground.

Wednesday morning we spend as long as we could on the beach, then packed up, unhooked, dumped our holding tanks and were on the way home.

Can't wait to go again!
