A day in Spring at Folly Beach

Beautiful colors of the water and the sky and some people were already enjoying the sunshine. This is the place to be on a day like this!


A place, where flying kites are not only for little boys...


A place where airplanes meet the clouds...


...and fourteen pelicans are flying over your head...


and you will find some still living shells in the water


and of course, where hubby has to take a closer look to it too - don't worry, we released it back to the sea.


The place also, where palm trees are giving a very tropical look to the scene - I felt almost like back in Key West :-)


...where the palm leafs have very strong colors...


..where black birds are singing in the limbs...


...and on the other side is his neighbor singing too, a brown bird. Can anyone tell me the real names for these little cute birdies?



Do this plant will have some flowers too? I'm pretty sure they'll do, later in the summer - because just now it's "only" springtime.

It's so much fun to spend some time at the beach - and it's big fun to live in Charleston!

Hi Sue! This week was another hectic one, so I’m sorry to have been a bit absent from here. Anyhow TGIF, so I managed to drop by to see some wonderful pictures. Loved the House Fronts, the Porches and the Spring Flowers, of course. The Harbour tour seems to have to deal with a sea not for admirals... ;) maybe just a bit windy. But my treat was today's blue sky and the beach! Wish I was there...
Thanks for your comments at Blogtrotter.
Have a great weekend!

Thank you for taking us with at the beach - very different from a Norwegian one at this time of the year (but you know that from one of my previous post:-).

The pics are breath taking! I loved the first one with the beautiful, so very blue coloured sky and of course the fauna is so exotic looking for a Norwegian.

Wishing you a great end to your week :-)

Hi Susanne, the beach looks great -I love those kind of days. In fact Charleston looks like a very good substitute for Key West.

Nice shots Sue. It's lovely to se blue skies and plants in bloom. We are having a very late spring here, the trees are just starting to get new growth and it's really still sad and gllomy here. Can't wait to see blue sies again LOL I loe your palm shot. great colour nad texture.

Have a nice weekend Sue

Good morning, Sue. These are beautiful pictures and such nice rich colors, too. I always feel choked up with nostalgia when I come and see your pictures. You capture the Charleston scene so perfectly.

I'm not sure what the bird is, but I think the plant in the last picture is a Yucca and has really pretty flowers.

Susanne49 said...
