Fourth of July- Back at the Beach!

What better way to start Independence Day than head to the beach! It has been hot, humid and muggy- typical for Charleston in the summer. We got to Sullivan’s Island just before 11 and even found a good parking spot, a nice surprise.

The ocean water felt really good. Skies were partly cloudy. Boat and ship activity kept my camera clicking. Here are some of my favorite shots.

Commerce takes no day's off! 

Fish on! Nice catch!

The crowds increased as the day went on, but we were at a spot much quieter. 
This cargo ship had Monrovia registry.  It's the Maersk Kowloon.

Ship location sites says the Kowloon flies for Liberia, but click on the photo and see it's Monrovia.

Happy Birthday America!  

Later, it was dinner at Edmond's Oast restaurant downtown then we watched fireworks coming from Patriots Point in Mt. Pleasant. We were at the Irish Memorial located near the South Carolina Aquarium on the Charleston side.
