Move ’em on, head ’em up
Head ’em up, move ’em on
Move ’em on, head ’em up, rawhide
That’s always what I think of when we reach the last week in March. Every snowbird from the tip of Florida will be heading north this weekend. I started packing yesterday with the sewing machine and materials. The packing needs to get done so it doesn’t interfere with any fun outings this week.
What’s fun down here? Well, it can be a walk on the beach or just time spent on the balcony watching others walk on the beach. There are lunches and dinners with friends, walks at Brookgreen to see what’s blooming, maybe a fabric sale, and afternoon coffee with everyone in the community room. When we pull out on Saturday, I don’t want to feel like I missed anyone or anything. 🙂
I’ve got some good doors for Thursday so I’ll leave you this morning with some photos from last week. It was a good one.
I had a video of the swinging bridge just for Dan, but every time I tried to embed it, I lost the entire post. After two attempts, I stopped trying. 😦
So, here’s the narrative. The Socastee SC Swing Bridge built in 1935 was the final piece in a 2,700-mile Intracoastal Waterway started in 1824 running along the Eastern Seaboard from Maine to Florida. When demanded, it pivots at a quarter-to and a quarter-after to allow ships to pass through. The Bridge is part of the Socastee Historic District and is listed in the National Register. We have several drawbridges up north, but I’d never seen a bridge pivot. It was truly amazing.
Have a great week, as we push towards the 1st of April. 🙂
