Grand Strand, South Carolina, USA

Sea oats (real name uniola paniculata) waving in the sunrise.

Is this sign really necessary?  How many Tsunamis have ever occurred along the South Carolina coast?    Perhaps we should put up signs at the beaches saying, "Danger - sunshine may cause skin cancer." Or, "Danger - stepping on sharp broken shells may cause foot damage."  Maybe we should require footwear for all beach goers.  Maybe we should require full length clothing covering all skin to keep the sun away. Maybe we should stop acting like a bunch of idiots by expecting towns, cities, and governments to legislate common sense.  Whatever happened to personal responsibility anyway?

Look at all the footprints - must be all the people running from the Tsunamis!!

Meanwhile, a touch of sanity (?) and unselfish commitment is displayed elsewhere by Worldguy.  Erik Bendl and his trusty dog Nice had just walked from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida over the past two months as part of his ongoing effort to raise awareness for diabetes. Like he says, would you walk up to a strange man with a dog and start chatting with him?  Probably not, but a strange man with a dog walking a six foot diameter globe - that's a whole different story - everyone walks up to him and chats and he gets to share his concern about diabetes.  (His mother was a victim of diabetes).

Elsewhere at lunch in a local Ethiopian restaurant, tourist Amy is attempting to cure her hiccups by drinking from a straw while plugging her ears - not sure it worked - I think the laughter of her tablemates at this visual spectacle may have been the real cure.
