The week after Labor Day, my cousins and I spent time at Litchfield Beach, enjoying the sun, sand, waves, and relaxed atmosphere. Many of the summer visitors had departed and the coast was reclaimed by its residents. We visited with friends in nearby Conway and Murrells Inlet, eating at great local restaurants including the Hanser House, Rivertown Bistro, and Inlet Kitchen. One day, we shopped at the Original Hammock Shops and sampled some of the delicious fudge and wine offered there. From our screened porch, we watched an alligator sun itself beside a pond. Had a wonderful time being together!
