Mom and dad had a chance to get out and explore the area recently, and have come across some pretty cool things. The Chapel of Ease, the ruins of an old church nearby, looks kind of scary.
lighthouse pictures are from Hunting Island, and this is one of South
Carolina's only lighthouses that you can actually climb up. The very
top isn't accessible, but mom and dad were able to get all the way up to
the observation deck that rings the outside of the structure just below the windows at
Mom said dad freaked when they got to the top and stepped out onto the deck. What a sissy. I guess he eventually started breathing again, and walked around the whole thing with her. Apparently he let go of the railing long
enough to take some pictures, including this one of the beach and picnic area. Where we moved to isn't quite as close to a beach as they'd like to be, but it's not a bad drive.
This is a view of the steps in the lighthouse, a dizzying spiral that worms its way to the top, with a small landing at each level.
