We slept 100 feet from the ocean in a tent and listened to the waves and raccoons all night. We then took a boat to the uninhabited Otter Island and spent a day without any fresh water or plumbing. This was a real adventure. Not the wussy kind. So thankful for my buggy, smelly, sandy, blistered, exhausting adventure! Thank you South Carolina for giving me spring in January!

*Photos were taken with both iPhone and DSLR and edited with Florabella and Addy Lane Actions. Thanks to Christy of Addy Lane for letting me sample her actions.

This is Wordless Wednesday. But as you can see, I have a hard time keeping it wordless, so Wordful or Not So Wordless posts are always welcome here. You can grab my button in the sidebar but it is not required to participate. Just grab any photo and come link up! And if you'd like to connect with other WW participants, click HERE or one of the thumbnails below. It's a fun way to meet some new folks!

    I am a big fan of your photography. I think it's the third shot, I just love the way you capture that beach misty feeling, and the one with you on the tree, completely captures that feeling of relaxing on the beach.  x Tamara Red Coat Studio

  24. Isn't it great?  Others are talking about winter doldrums. We've had a bit of spring in the middle of winter.  I love SC (and Edisto).

    ReplyDelete
  25. Your photography is breath taking as always...wish I could go shell picking here (our beaches are lame)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Spring in January...oh it sounds as lovely as your pictures make it look.  Even with the sand and the lack of easy to get to showers, you make it seem beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Amazing photos you have taken part in they are wonderful. It is so cold here, its nice to see other places that are warm.

    ReplyDelete
  28. That looks like such a great experience and your photos are amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh my, so many great pictures. You have captured some wonderful memories. Lovely

    ReplyDelete
  30. They're all wonderful! I wouldn't have been able to narrow it down either!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Love all these photos! so beautiful, I miss summer :( I am surrounded by snow right now.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Breathtaking photos! It looks like an amazing place! x

    ReplyDelete
  33. What a treasure!  The trip and the photos are simply amazing!  I love the sand dollar shot.

    ReplyDelete
  34. its been awhile since I been on your site and could kick myself. I just love your photos every week. They are just beautifully done and makes me my jaw drop every week. 

    ReplyDelete
  35. Living just minutes away from the beach, I know just what you mean about limiting photos you share....I, still to this day, take way too many photos of the daily adventures on the sandy walks.  It's beautiful, isn't it?!!  And your shell collection....gotta love that.   - http://hootin--anni.blogspot.com

  36. Wow. Stunning and evocative as always, Lysh.
    I can almost smell the salt on the breeze.
    Beautiful.

  37. Beautiful. What a huge expanse of clean beach! Wish Galveston was more like this! My fave shots are the ones with the trees. I have a thing about trees though. LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  38. That is incredible! What precious family moments you're collecting.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I must confess... I will always be one of your biggest fans. Your pics are heaven to me. Your black and whites make my heart sigh.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Aw, thanks so much Claudia. So happy that my work resonates with you. 

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love trees as well. Being new to SC, I'm loving all of my new photo ops, but I'm learning that all beaches are uniquely different. Edisto is a more family friendly beach and rarely packed with crowds. It's great for shelling and meditating, especially in the winter. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Thanks Simone! I'm so happy to hear it. That was my hope by sharing so many. I saw that you recently had a camping adventure at a beach as well... Are you recovered yet? 

    ReplyDelete
  43. That's a huge compliment. Thanks so much! Stop back any time! 

    ReplyDelete
  44. That isn't even all of them, lol! Those were the ones I was allowed to photograph. My daughter actually got a slew as well including a small black one (not photographed here).

    ReplyDelete
  45. It really is, Charlotte! 

    ReplyDelete
  46. Thanks so much Corsage. I'm always my worst critic, but I do love that we have so many photos to  remember our adventure.

    ReplyDelete
  47. That's the goal. ;) Just wish the fam was more accepting of the camera sometimes. haha

    ReplyDelete
  48. Thanks so much! Appreciate the visit!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I do remember what it was like to long for a little hint of spring, but try to enjoy the white stuff. Although cold, it really is beautiful! 

    ReplyDelete
  50. Thanks. It's sometimes tough to balance playing and documenting, so this time around I actually relied on my iphone more. 

    ReplyDelete
  51. Thank you. It was a blast. So sad our adventure had to end...

    ReplyDelete
  52. We had a crazy warm weekend. Hit some record highs, but it's supposed to dip in the 50s (and maybe even 40s) next week.

    ReplyDelete
  53. It was a real adventure with breathtaking beauty. Just what I needed. 

    ReplyDelete
  54. If you ever make your way to SC, Edisto is really great for shelling. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  55. Hon, it's amazing! There are no words. I'm loving every single minute of it! 

    ReplyDelete
  56. Edisto, SC- but if you want to camp in the summer you better book early. haha

    ReplyDelete
  57. Thanks so much! It was a beautiful weekend! Great memories! So glad my 11 and 13 yr old still enjoy treasure hunting. :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. Thanks Tabitha! Not always easy getting family shots, but so worth the effort! You should definitely check out the actions. Really loving Addy Lane's.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Yes, I've tried to share some on IG here and there, but internet was patchy while we were there. ;) It was definitely a blast! 

    ReplyDelete
  60. Thanks so much Amanda! One of my fav beaches!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Haha. Thanks so much Paula! I was afraid to put too many, but I think they all tell a great story! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  62. lol. Sure, come on down! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  63. Gorgeous shots! Even though I live in SC, Edisto isn't a beach I go to very often. After seeing your pics, now I want to go. :)

    I'd love to have you link up over at Tales of a Pee Dee Mama.

  123. It's so beautiful there.  So let me ask you a weather question for our trip planning this year.  If we come down mid May, will the water be warm enough to swim?

    ReplyDelete
  124. Wow! Those photos are gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  125. This is the reason why I take my camera with me wherever I go. Hoping to get this good. Fantastic.
