We went to the beach on Edisto Island while we were near Charleston. The waves broke too hard for Marcus and Caroline to ride them, but it was a really nice beach. There was no board walk or an businesses near by. Just plenty of free beach access. There were lots of shells, so Caroline was thrilled. They both had a great time jumping in the waves with their dad. It was about a thirty minute drive through some beautiful countryside. When we left Charleston we went over a really neat bridge.
