Afternoon Beach Activities Provide Relief From Heat

A family that fishes together, stays together!
The reality of July is here, and the dog days of summer translates into another week with forecast temperatures into the upper 90’s. A trip to the mountains for heat relief requires hours of travel and reservations for a place to stay. The good news for Lowcountry residents is that they are only a short drive to the coastline for a range of afternoon activities that can provide relief from the heat.

Another good option to beat the heat.
The Edisto Beach Lions Clubs offers family fun in the form of BINGO games each Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. This afternoon plan begins with an arrival at 2907 Myrtle Street by 5:30 in order to get in line for when the doors open, and the games begin at 6. This summertime tradition runs from June 7 through August 2, so there is still lots of time to pick a date, head to Edisto Beach, and try your luck to win some fun prizes.

Saltwater anglers can bring their family to the water’s edge on Edisto Beach in order to try their luck and enjoy the sunset too. During hot weather the fish tend to bite early in the day and late in the day, when the hot sun is not directly overhead. This makes the chance of getting a bite in the late afternoon very enticing, and it provides plenty of motivation to gather the fishing rods, some bait and a beach chair. Passing time on the beach with a fishing line in the surf can be a very pleasant way to pass the time.
