4 days of beach camping = 8 loads of laundry

We went to the beach again.  We spent 4 days and 3 nights on Hunting Island in South Carolina.  It is just a few islands away from our last camping spot on Edisto Island.  Alex, Stephanie and Ian came down for a couple of nights and our neighbors Pat and Sheila got the site next to us for 3 nights too.  It was fun to be surrounded by friends at the campground.  Oliver and Benton had a bit of freedom and wandered between the 3 sites. 

The weather was nice, windy one day, rainy one night, but for the most part, pleasant.  The mosquitos, on the other hand, were terrible.  Although there were no visible swarms, they were as bad as they are on any backcountry hike in Alaska.  Since, I hate smothering myself with DEET, I came home with plenty of bites.  Oh, there were raccoons again.  I think they searched every campsite every night for food.

Unfortunately, my camera is not working right, and is headed for the repair shop, but click here to see some of the pictures I got at the beach one day.
