12/6/13 Friday at Yemassee, SC (The Oaks at Point South-TT/MA-John and Trish at Hilton Head Island)
Lazy morning. I managed to work on the blog and Greg helped me make some changes. Now if you check our tentative schedule (top menu), you’ll see our most recent entries at the top.
In the afternoon John and Greg played ping pong (Greg won 2 games, John 1) while Marcia and I walked the beach. So soothing. This beach, at least, is different than our northwest beaches: Here it’s fine white sand which gets so hard packed where the ocean rolls over it that it feels like smooth concrete. Ours is just sand, with rocks or pebbles sometimes and generally not fine. We have tide pools filled with all sorts of fun sea creatures like tiny crabs, sea anemones, big sea stars and even little fish. The areas of water that the low tide leaves here are not nearly as full of life. I did find that one small, thin sea star you saw in yesterday’s blog. Of course the water is much warmer here than there. Smaller surf, though. When we got back from our walk Marcia played ping pong with Greg while I read and John shot a little pool. The wind picked up, I was in the shadows, so I let them know I was headed for a sunny seat. John soon joined me. Pretty soon I needed a restroom, so we just headed for our condo then read on our sunny balcony. When Greg and Marcia couldn’t find us they played some Bocce ball.
When they returned Greg helped me learn how to navigate “Paint”, then we went to play “Corntoss” (also called “corn hole”). My first time. It’s fun. He won both games, but I got close a couple times!
For the evening we had grilled chicken with tator tots, then John and I hit the hot tub outside. Mmmm-so warm. Back for tonight’s movie: “Olympus Has Fallen”. Greg and Marcia had seen it already so they enjoyed the hot tub then. Off to bed around 10 pm so we could get up early tomorrow.
Such a perfectly restful, wonderful day.
