Folly Beach certainly has a personality of its own. Isn't that what we love about this beachside village? It's part funky. Part hip. Part quaint. Part artsy. All beach. And 100% fun. If you haven't visited lately, put it on your Must Do list! August through October is an especially good time to visit Folly. In the meantime, did you know...?

For my second diary post on the Heyward-Washington House, we'll be investigating 87 Church Street's connection to President George Washington and the building's history to present.

During President Washington's Southern Tour in 1791, the City of Charleston leased 87 Church for the President and his retinue (which was far less than the number required to travel with presidents now) for one week. That single week seared Washington's stamp on both Charleston and 87 Church Street.

This is not the first time that I have brought my attention to the culinary Mecca that Charleston has become. As we all know, many of America's finest chefs now call the Lowcountry home. Attention is often drawn to the magic they weave into their dinner creations, yet little focus is placed on the many diverse sandwiches that make Charleston proud. Some fancy; some not. All are fabulous!

We understand the grumbles that come from paying more for day-to-day necessities and the parts of “adulting” that make us all want to roll our eyes. At the same time, the much bigger issue is the dramatic need to make things safer for ALL of us. Regardless if you drive on rural roads alone at night, or on any of the crowded 932 miles of interstate highway weaving through our cities, safer roads are better for EVERYONE.  Here is why.

It has been a warm day. By now a cool breeze has picked up and is moving away the warmth of the day. It is around 7pm, and the City Market in Charleston is bustling with people. Chelle Fazal is part of the Night Market and has her paintings set up here. She has brought out her new jellyfish painting and is looking forward to a great night.

Her journey has required due diligence. It has taken her almost two decades of windy roads, dry spells and hectic schedules to get here...

It’s been a while since I tried out O-Ku, so a friend and I decided to go back and check out their dinner menu for the purposes of a review (my previous review only covered their lunch selections). We had a veritable sushi feast, which I would happily repeat anytime, if anyone would like to go with me (and pay, of course).

The first thing they brought out was the Poké (diced salmon, tuna, Hamachi, Asian pear, mango, seaweed salad, dandash, $14). It was really refreshing and the kind of thing that is perfect for snacking on in the summer.

Part I - Thomas Heyward

We get a double portion of Founding Fathers with the Heyward-Washington House at 87 Church Street, as this building is associated with both Thomas Heyward, one of South Carolina's four signers of the Declaration of Independence, and George Washington, General of the American forces during the Revolutionary War and the first President of the United States. In 1770, the rice planter Daniel Heyward bought the property at 87 Church Street and later sold it to his son Thomas...
