Retro sign - Rita's

Rita's, Folly Beach
Photo from a recent visit to Rita's on Folly Beach. I am not enjoying it getting dark so early. It's pretty much impossible for me to get home, grab a bite to eat and get out for a walk while it is still light. It seems almost unreasonable to go out for a good walk when it is pitch dark. Blah. Hopefully I can get out this weekend and freshen up my Charleston photo album with some Christmas in the lowcounty shots.

I arrived home to find the police at my door today. They were making rounds in the neighborhood after the recent suspected arson fire on my street. There has been a string of arson fires in old Charleston houses in recent years but this is the first time one has been as far south as Vanderhorst St. and I don't like it. I'd really like them to catch the person doing this. They are all set in the middle of the night and mostly seem to be in rental properties. It's left me thinking of escape routes from the house and wondering if I could get out of my window if necessary.
