Arrived on Friday. Just in time for some lovely sunshine and a gorgeous sunset.
|This was the beach. Beautiful sugar sand and clear water.|
|Why is the rum always gone? :(|
Sadly, Friday was the best weather of the weekend. But I wasn't going to let that stop me. I am mesmerized by the ocean. I was content to stare at it and think for hours on end - no exaggeration.
It was overcast on Saturday, but I stayed out until the thunderstorms closed down the beach.
|This view was from the restaurant we escaped to after the storms rolled in.|
I discovered that I really like Shrimp & Grits, which (if you can't tell) is a very southern dish. It's also one of those things that everyone seems to make slightly differently. The version I had was sort of a shrimp & sausage stew on top of some cheesy grits.
|Yummy! Going to have to figure out how to make a this without sausage.|
Sunday was very sunny - but terrifically windy. No umbrellas. Like I cared. I sat on my beach chair, ignoring the sand blowing around, chasing after my hat - and shoes - a couple of times. And staring at the hypnotic waves.
|One of the friends I made on Sunday.|
|Perfect Monday. Sigh.|
I did not want to leave at all, but alas I have neither unlimited vacation days nor money, so I had to return home. I hope to return again someday!
