Whether it is sunny and warm or cool, gray and foggy, life is good at the beach.
When I walk, there is always something interesting to see.
I only saw the dolphins once this week, and they barely broke the surface, but I was walking on the beach and caught a surfer enjoying the waves near the pier. He kind of reminded me of a pelican’s landing when his ride came to an end. 🙂
There are a lot of wonderful restaurants and food destinations here. We tried a new one this week – Parlor Doughnuts in Pawleys Island. Let me tell you, Dunkin Donuts will never be the same. 🙂 They’re a little pricey at $19 for half a dozen, but they were fun to try.
We also have someone in the building who likes to write in the sand, and their messages certainly bring a smile to this woman.
A group of six friends had a nice afternoon at Brookgreen chatting, laughing, and enjoying the gardens. Laughter really is the best medicine. The turtles are not out yet – too cool.
The rest of the time I’ve been reading (Beverly Connor and Linda Fairstein), sewing, and watching the new Reacher series on Prime. I made a really pretty bag for a friend and forgot to take a photo. I guess that’s because I was still sewing on it up until the hour before we went to enjoy an at-home dinner with them.
We enjoy restaurants and groups like everyone else, but we’ve found a real benefit to not eating in and avoiding crowds – we have wonderful conversations and enjoy the entire time more with a couple or a couple of friends. It’s quality over quantity.
The Walking Iris has provided eight blooms so far with a double on one day.
The plant itself looks like an iris, the flower looks more like an orchid, and the fact that the bloom only lasts one day reminds me of a day lily.
With the temperature at home set at 50°F, I bring one of my two pots with me in case the other one decides to expire because of the cold. It was given to me by a good friend who has since passed, and when it blooms I think of him.
I hope your have a great week, and we’ll do the same. ❤️
