When I woke up, ready to get set for teaching at 5:55am, I decided that I should go to the beach and see the sunrise. It was still dark and starry, and the sunrise was due at 7:22am. I stayed in the living room, reading, until 6:45 or so, when I noticed that it was really getting light out. I took the camera and the car, and figured that I could easily find one of the accesses to the beach here on Fripp Island.

The tides seem to move more slowly in the salt marsh, but they can be measured in feet. Our hostess left a note saying only to launch from the back of the house in very high tides: 8 to 9 feet!

On our second visit, we went to the City Market area -- honestly, I thought it was have more shops. It was a lot of bars, and art galleries (which were nice) but I didn't expect it to be as bar-ish as it was. So...we went to a bar. Always fun.
Overall, a very relaxing month.
