Beach Time

I finally finished editing the photos from my trip south with M. 

It took long enough. 

Of course I wasn't able to work on them for a while. The Man has been a bit under the weather. I have been trying to pamper him this past week.

Let's just say the words, "Poor little bunny" have been used quite frequently.

An oldie but goodie from the Brits.

In case you haven't seen this a billion times already.

A heart seashell. 

I told you I'm a heart whisperer.

Wandering around the island one day, C took us to a quiet spot at the end of a dock. 

All four of us plunked ourselves down and started chatting. Then we got quiet and sprawled out all over the dock. Eyes closed, faces turned up towards the glorious sun, warm breezes blowing across us, we listened to the snuffles of a pair of dolphins playing not too far from the dock.

Ah, peace.

Until two men came with their motorboat, that had not been run for two years, and put her into the water right next to our dock.


There goes the neighborhood. Smelly exhaust, loud motor, and men talking. 

Pooh. No more peace.

I was not feeling too kindly towards these men until that southern charm came oozing out.

"Are we in your way?" C or M might have asked. Since we were sprawled out on the dock and one of them had to maneuver around us to get to the boat. 

"No, ma'am," this charmer said. "The property values just went up with you ladies sitting here."

Isn't he just the sweetest thing?
Beautiful blue sky.

I think we had only one morning of light rain. And we were sleeping in that morning anyway.

So we enjoyed our breakfast and watched the starfish we had drying out on the back steps turn into slightly mushy starfish.

Oops. Forget to pull them inside before the rains came.
We explored Botany Bay.

An absolutely beautiful beach.

Actually, it takes your breath away.

I have never seen such big seashells on a beach. But they are all protected at this beach and you can't take any home with you.

It was tres difficile to leave them behind.

Botany Bay is where part of the movie "The Patriot" was filmed.

One of my favorite scenes. 

Makes me cry every time.

More photos another day.


Time for bed.
