The Setting: 100 acres of pluff mud and marsh grass about 30 minutes outside of downtown Charleston.

Marshlands and Pluff MudThe Plot: 5 friends plan to go camping with two mutts and a German Short Haired Pointer. At the last minute, one of the friends decides to dog sit and bring a Golden Retriever, and another friend brings his father’s Chocolate Lab and junkyard dog, along with his sister’s Labra Doodle (did I spell that right? Is that even a real dog? Yes, yes it is.) All are in for a fun filled night of incessant barking. Who knew a dog pack 7 strong would stay up ALL night on constant alert for raccoons and abominable marshmen?

The Characters:

The Beast - Linus

Clearly I am still in the honeymoon phase of living in Charleston. It has been a year since I moved here and my drive to and from work still amazes me. I cross two rivers and the intracoastal waterway every morning, each day seeing something new. (Could be a fun photography project to shoot my drive to work one morning?)

Maybe everyone living in Charleston is in a honeymoon phase with their city – how can you not be when you are surrounded by a landscape like this?

I imagine this is what Pat Conroy describes in his many novels set in this beautiful Low Country landscape. I took these photos between 6:30 and 8:30 last Friday when Hurricane Irene spared our coastlines and salt water marshes of Charleston. And sunsets like these make me so so thankful.
