Beaufort , SC and Tidal area islands.

Beaufort has so many photo opportunities. Mansions, homes with gardens, tidal areas, fishing boats, light house, neat bird feeder near fishing pier.
Some of my pics of the area,

We can meet at the Steamer Oyster and Steak House for an early lunch, then I recommend a caravan and we first go to the shrimp boats on the right side while heading toward Fripp Island. Fripp Island is restricted to residents.

    Carol, you have login to the Aiken Photography Meetup Group, and then you will see some photos to the right before the attended pictures, and the word "upload" underneath. Click that, and then the upload dialog begins.

    I'm back from Va. and ready to post some photos. This is the first time I'll be doing that. Where do I go, how do I post?

    Was a great meetup - covered lots of territory, and enjoyed the photoshoot with Carol Grady. The weather turned out great most of the time - just a few sprinkles that weren't enough to bother us. We ate at some really delicious food sat Steamer and the Pannini (shrimp hoagie out of this world!). Guess I will upload a bunch of pictures since there were just the two of us tough women!

    What a wonderful Friday and Saturday spent in Beaufort. So many pics - so little time. I won't be able to post for two weeks since I'm leaving on Monday for Virginia. Had a great time!

    July 12, 2013

    Carol Grady and Carolyn Cloe said they are going anyway, They are headed there now and staying overnight. Sure hope they can take pics between rain.

      Everyone canceled but the two of you. I hope you make us all jealous with wonderful Pics :D And we were a bunch of wimps :)

    From the Weather Channel.

    Scattered thunderstorms in the morning, then windy in the afternoon with more widespread storms. High near 85F. Winds ESE at 15 to 25 mph. Chance of rain 80%. Locally heavy rainfall possible.

    If no one says anything, I am going to cancel and make for another day. Sorry Carolyn about your hotel. :(

    I will hold off until later today.

    July 12, 2013

  • Kristie K.

    I think we should reschedule this one!

    Local news this morning said we should be getting rain starting around 6 am and it not letting up all day. The remnants of Chantal will be smacking the Beaufort area tomorrow. The major thunderstorms associated with this storm coming onshore between 6-7 pm. If there aren't any breaks or the wind is too strong I will not be heading out there. I don't want to try to drive across the big bridge while fighting the winds. Plus cameras and rain don't tend to mix too well. :o) If anyone goes, I wish you well!! I pray we get a little bit of sun though.

    Great place for pics. Shrimp boats.

    Located on highway 21 as you head east towards Fripp Island, just before the bridge to Harbor Island and is a great place to buy fresh seafood. If you time it right, you can watch the trawlers come in.

    July 12, 2013

  • Lloyd F.

    They are saying 70% chance of rain tomorrow and flooding today. Do you want to move the trip to another day or just go and at least we will have lunch at the Steamer?

    July 12, 2013

  • Carolyn Cagle C.

    I have one friend in Beaufort today and says the weather there is beautiful, and another one who lives there who says the same.

    It would be good if everyone who is going would furnish their cell phone numbers, so everyone can put them into their cell phones in case we need to contact each other while there. I will start:

    I received an e-mail today saying that the plans were changed for the meetup. I don't see anything different. Am I missing something?

    June 27, 2013

    • Carolyn Cagle C.

      I think Lloyd is saying we will meet at Steamers for lunch on Saturday and then we will go on the photoshoot in a caravan. I made our hotel reservation (paid in adv for better rate) for Fri night. Will email you and get your phone number so we can make our plans, etc.

      June 27, 2013

    • Lloyd F.

      I had to change my we page due to spammers so I changed the links here. no real change. It tells people automatically, no real plan changes.

  • Lloyd F.

    I picked the Steamer Oyster and Steakhouse @ 11 am, we can meet up there and have an early lunch, then head out to take our pictures.

    Yes tentatively - sounds like fun, but I may be having eye surgery around that time. If I go I think I would like to stay overnight there and wondered if there were any ladies who would like to share a hotel room there -- tossing ideas.

    1 · May 20, 2013

    • Carolyn C.

      I had a response for sharing a hotel room, so we will be discussing/planning it further.

      Wonderful, glad you're going to make it.

    It depends on what day you're looking at going. If you go on a Saturday or Sunday there is free parking in the parking lots downtown by the marina and the riverwalk. It's a pretty safe area. If you go during the week you have to pay to park there. Downtown is literally right across the street from there. And there are horse drawn carriage rides that depart from there too.
    I'm not sure where the shrimp boats come in and leave from in Beaufort but I do know where they come in and leave from in Bluffton (20-30 minutes away). There's a historic church that is somewhere near downtown Beaufort as well and lots of really old historic homes to shoot. Could easily be a full day of shooting. Bring a large SD card!! If you're interested in the parking lot by the water, let me know and I will get you an address.

    1 · May 20, 2013

    • Lloyd F.

      I know from experience that parking lots downtown can be packed. I was thinking maybe a school or something. The location part of this site requires an address. The shrimp boats are out of town headed toward Fripp Island, but I don't remember which island they are on.

      May 20, 2013

  • Kristie K.

    This sounds like fun!

    May 20, 2013

  • suziey q.

    I live 20 minutes from Beaufort. The downtown river / marina area is great for photography as well.

    May 19, 2013

    • Lloyd F.

      Could you give us a good meeting place, with address? Also maybe gps coordinates of the shrimp boats? That way we could firm up a meeting place.

      May 19, 2013

    • Lloyd F.

      Yes, downtown is great, I also like to walk 2 or 3 blocks back from downtown and shoot the old houses. Everything has so much character !!! And with me, one more character LOL
