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!
I think my post today should have been ” Falling MORE in love with Edisto! ”
… 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…
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!
So until tomorrow…
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!
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.
