Noted photographer Frank Melvin Braden and writer Ellie Maas Davis combined their talents to tell an entertaining tale about a beautiful yet quirky place, Folly Beach, South Carolina. Their words and images vividly paint a joyous picture of a carefree summer spent on this beloved stretch of warm sand.

The Humours of Folly is certain to bring a smile to your face and fill your heart with the desire to visit the place to create your own vacation memories.
