“Falling” for Edisto

Dear Reader:

Yesterday I got in my car to find fall on Edisto… but soon forgot my mission by just discovering scenes of sheer beauty… no matter the season… like these awe-inspiring marshes.

And I had to laugh … after a couple of miles on Jungle Road I happened to look in the rear view mirror and saw a skeleton driving a blue Jeep! I slowed down and as it got nearer I realized it was a young teenager’s head popping up from the car roof- another teenager was driving and the skeleton was fastened on the front.

When it turned off I circled around and found it parked in a deserted plaza. I pulled up and told the cute teenagers I was taking pictures of pumpkins and fall and now a skeleton… if they would let me!

They all laughed and of course wanted to be in the picture too… what a way to start finding fall! Too much fun!

” Dem Bones-Dem Bones, Dem Funny Bones…!”

I think my post today should have been ” Falling MORE in love with Edisto! ”

Too cute!

… and since a friend from Erskine invited us over for cocktails yesterday to see her new home… we were ready … taking our ” Witches Brew” along…

Very ” historical ” vino” too!” 😂

But the greatest simplest pleasure of all was eating boiled peanuts off the back porch-protected from the front porch winds-just a warming heat from the sun and an instant natural disposal below in the grass … easy clean-up! The best of southern living!

Boiled 🥜 Peanuts… a southern treat!

So until tomorrow…

So glad Tommy and Kaitlyn got to experience watching the Tigers live…up close and personal Saturday night in Boston!

Today is my favorite day-Winnie the Pooh

We were invited to our friend KA Stevenson’s new home on Edisto… it was beautiful and we had a great time!

We are so happy for our friend!
Beautiful decor and spacious open areas
Ka’s side yard and backyard!
Jackson loved Sunny Shores

Then … we just made the sunset traditional watch at the end of the island… a crowd had gathered as well as some clouds… but it was still magnificent.

God’s two greatest gifts… sunrise and sunset
Even a few clouds can’t deter this universal fireworks show of nature
If you are lucky enough to live on the beach … you’re lucky enough!

About Becky Dingle

I was born a Tarheel but ended up a Sandlapper. My grandparents were cotton farmers in Laurens, South Carolina and it was in my grandmother’s house that my love of storytelling began beside an old Franklin stove. When I graduated from Laurens High School, I attended Erskine College (Due West of what?) and would later get my Masters Degree in Education/Social Studies from Charleston Southern. I am presently an adjunct professor/clinical supervisor at CSU and have also taught at the College of Charleston. For 28 years I taught Social Studies through storytelling. My philosophy matched Rudyard Kipling’s quote: “If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.” Today I still spread this message through workshops and presentations throughout the state. The secret of success in teaching social studies is always in the story. I want to keep learning and being surprised by life…it is the greatest teacher. Like Kermit said, “When you’re green you grow, when you’re ripe you rot.”
