Letter from the Editor: Passengers
By Leslie Moore
As most of us do who live along the Grand Strand, I love the beach. Growing up in Charlotte, N.C., my family visited various North and South Carolina beaches several times a year, and my parents finally moved our family here in the ’70s. Photos taken on one beach or another fill my albums and serve as a chronicle of my life. From sunrise swims with my father to building sand castles with my own children, the ocean and her soft, sandy beaches have been a constant presence throughout the years. Today I still go to the beach several times a week; to walk or run, to think, to watch the sunrise and, yes, to sit in the sun and read (under an umbrella and covered in sun block). Just the sound of the waves and the smell of salty air brings me peace. I have no extended vacation planned this year, only a couple of long weekends away, but living near the beach means a mini-vacation is always waiting when I need an escape.
I hope you enjoy this issue as much we enjoyed putting it together. It’ll be even better if you take it to the beach!
Happy Mother’s Day!
Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.
