12/1/13 Sunday at Yemassee, SC (The Oaks at Point South-TT/MA-John and Trish at Hilton Head Island)
Slept in. Ah. Connect with Deb re our plans for today: head for their place in Sun City at 9 am.
John left with Dave for golf west of Hilton Head Island (much cheaper there) while Deb and I visited as we enjoyed our tea/hot water.
We explored Sun City, a huge association of 8,000 homeowners. This is part of Deb’s garden. She grows cool weather plants now, in winter.
Their theater seats 500.
Deb in the stain glass room. She is a member of that club. There are numerous clubs you can get involved in.
These were taken at Riverbend-a kind of sister city to Sun City where the houses are custom built and start at a million dollars. Love that Heron shot.
These are images from Honey Horn, the Coastal Discovery Museum, which is free:
These are Marsh Tacky horses.
Festival of Trees images. Money made from their sales benefits the Hilton Head Elementary School.
Deb dropped me off at the condo around 4 pm. John got there about 5 pm. He’d had a good time playing golf, especially enjoying his driving shots flying straight. We enjoyed a leftover supper of spaghetti again, then watched another “free” movie: “Turbo”. Just about the time it ended, our friends appeared at the door! We shared hugs, helped them get their things up and settle in. They’d driven from Milwaukee, WI to here in 2 days. Unfortunately, they ran into a lot of congestion -we figure people returning from Thanksgiving celebrations. So we offered them some time in the Jacuzzi. Greg’s back was sore, so he took us up on the offer. John and I watched “The Mentalist” while he enjoyed his private hot tub. Marcia played on her computer. By midnight John and I made it to bed. Full day, I’d say. We’re ready for some quiet time.
