Re: “Learning the ropes of life on a boat in Charleston

That's how I started too! When I was 24 I bought a used powerboat for $1000 to live on. Sold it for a sailboat and am learning how to sail too! Living aboard a vessel is economical, and makes you very aware of how peoples daily lives effect the environment! To have this live style makes a person more conscientious and conservative of water and waste, and even what products you use daily. Like, washing dishes. You can't keep the water running and you have to use soap without harmful chemicals that will be rinsed out into the harbor!

Re: “A day in the life of Bert's Market

I used to live a few doors down and always we would make a late night run to get the BBQ in the crock pot.....I think it was $1 back then, as much as you could fit on the bun. A smile and a wave always greeted you and let you know you were welcome back as you left....

Bert's is the best one time I needed a paddle for my kayak and they let me borrow paddle with no questions asked. Super cool place to get food before surfing.

Re: “A day in the life of Bert's Market

Bert is my next door neighbor and a very nice person. That is the kind of personality that makes a business successful along with Omar & Julie & all the great people at "BERT'S".

Re: “The Windjammer is taking their decades-long bikini bash back to its roots

Do you have any older pics. But it was in the late 70's. I wish you could find older pics.

Re: “Sullivan's Island is the Lowcountry's family-friendly beach town

You should really mention something about the rip tides. Believe me when I say that the rip tide will take you away. There are more water missions for ignorant and misinformed people and anything on the Island. Trust me. My family has been there since 1906.

Re: “Sullivan's Island is the Lowcountry's family-friendly beach town

VRBO has all the rental places on SI. Some of the older, non-beachfront ones aren't very expensive.

A trip to the top of the SI lighthouse was a standard outing for SI Elementary students in the early 80's. Great view unmatched from any other local building except the Morris Island lighthouse.

How hipster kool is Folly Beach? Just look at all the plaid and craft beer being peddled to CofC kool kids.

Re: “Gearing up for a sober summer on Folly Beach

We are Folly Beach lovers and have been vacationing here for years. This ban will completely detour us and send us elsewhere. That's so sad to say considering we just started looking for a second home their. You can not ban something so significant from the beach without consequences. Put restrictions in place but not a ban. It will hurt businesses overall and Folly Beaches economy.

Re: “When and where to take your furry friends

It's a bit of a hike (1 hr n. of MTP) but the best dog-friendly beach is actually in Georgetown County. North Litchfield Beach on the northern end of Pawleys Island allows dogs all day everyday. Dogs are supposed to be leashed but there's very little enforcement because the patrol is so laid-back and friendly there. The beach is beautiful, spacious, safe for swimming, alcohol-friendly, and uncrowded. Perfect for families because it's not over-run with knuckleheads. Here is a dog-friendly vacation beach home that's close to the beach that we love: www.ShackNLB.com.

Re: “When and where to take your furry friends

You can bring your dog to PawPurri For Pets Boarding Day Care, Grooming and DayCare for the day while you are at the beach. www.PawPurri4Pets.com Why don't they talk about this service in this article? We can make your dog happy while you enjoy the beach... then he/she can go back to enjoy the beach after six with you.
