Love Letter to Charleston, Part 2

After a busy day gallivanting around Savannah and arriving back at our hotel around 10 pm, my mom and I slept in on our third day in Charleston.

Walking along this amazingly beautiful hidden beach opened my eyes to how much we can miss out on if…

Title: The Otherside of the Breezeway

Story: As we crested the end of the seemingly endless breezeway, all of a sudden the path turned sandy and the surrounding grounds became a haven of trees and dense bushes. A little further in the distance, a beach was blooming right in front of my eyes. It was magical.   #boneyardbeach #picoftheday #potd #photooftheday…

Title: The Breezeway

Early one morning while in Charleston, I went on a photography tour at Boneyad Beach. To get to the beach, you have to walk down a really long and creepy breezeway. There was a high level of fear of what was lurking in the murky depths of the water, but once I reached the other…
