2015 Toyota Camry XSE at Folly Beach for Memorial Day

Folly Beach surfers at the Washout and Camry XSE
Gorgeous weather on Memorial Day set flags flapping
A cool Northeast wind began to blow on Friday morning May 22, and it didn't stall out until after the Memorial Day holiday. We are always thankful for those who served our country, and mindful of those in the armed services now! While choppy seas might not have been the best for boating weather, it was spectacular beach weather at Folly Beach, cordially known as the Edge of America. Driving the 2015 Toyota Camry XSE Sport sedan with moonroof along East Arctic Avenue in the cooler weather felt great, riding to the washout to watch the surfers.

The sport Camry XSE with a 3.5-liter V6 motor comes in a special color called Ruby Flare, which is not the same as candy apple red. When fully loaded with options, this auto costs $35,768 and comes with remote start, Illuminated door enhancements, Pre-collision system, dynamic radar cruise control, paddle shifters and of course the EnTune Premium JBL sound system. The navigation and app suite is easily accessed with fingertips, and the black leather trim and ultra suede interior with red stitching sets this model apart.

It's only a short walk to view The Morris Island Lighthouse 
The American flags display on the Folly Beach fishing pier for Memorial Day reminds all beachgoers of the patriotic message behind the holiday. The lifeguards were on high alert for swimmers during the weekend since NE winds also means increased chance of rip currents. To say that Folly Beach was jam packed would be an understatement as beach volleyball courts were a active, frisbee and football tosses were ongoing, and of course suntanning until lobster red was in full effect as well.

At 25 miles per gallon the XSE drives with some zip while being frugal on gas. When switching into sport drive I could use the paddle shifters located on the steering wheel to use all 6 gears to rev up the feel of driving performance. The trunk space was ample, but by using two quick release buttons I could lay down the backseats and easily load up my surfboard or fishing rod. The XSE is a a cool ride in summer for cruising the East coast, just make sure that the windows are rolled down and that the satellite radio is turned up.
