Yes, it's Sullivan's Island, just across the harbor from downtown Charleston. This particular spot has changed dramatically in the last few years, going from a normal beach to where the sand has been washed out, causing a very long, shallow area. It was low tide, so the waves were breaking quite far out, but on high tide they are breaking much closer. Part of the re-sculpturing of the beach has created the tide pools that you see in these photos, which are replenished with each high tide. It has become a big play spot for wind surfing. On the down side, some multi-million dollar ocean front houses are one big storm away from disappearing.



On the left forefront you can see a concrete structure which is also at risk; it's a civil war canon platform.

Yes, sadly it seems most of the beaches from the North Carolina coast all the way down to Georgia are one or two storms from disappearing. The Outer Banks of NC, I fear, will not last much longer as we know them.
