Welcome...I'm delighted that you chose to visit! I started this blog in March 2010 and I am so happy that I did. It has made me more aware of the many ways that God is blessing my life. I have made some special friends who bless,teach,encourage,and entertain me! My desire is to be an encouragement to you. I hope you will tarry for a while and that you will come back to visit often.

beach trip...the rest of the story!

As I said, this was a new rental for us. We have been renting
 the same house on the island for 13 years. 
This one was much bigger...very spacious and comfortable.

It has a big kitchen and the  large bar was
perfect for serving all of us!
There were two tables for eating...

 ...and playing games.

 We actually had two canopies, but on Sun,
 only 5 of us were there. So one was enough.
Great to be able to retreat from the sun!
Look how blue the sky is!

We played on the beach and in the water...

There was lots of "togetherness"! :-)

   The kids had to play golf...

 ...and the parents joined in!

 The shrimp were scarce this year, 
but they did catch some crabs...

 ...that had to be cleaned...

 ...and boiled.

Fresh crab and our low country boil...
made for a fine dinner our last night!

We chose to take our picture in the historic district
 this year. Love the green and the Spanish moss!
We added three to the family
 this year...our two new grands
and our sweet new daughter-in-law!

 Everybody pulling out... headed for home.

 One last wave!
Already looking forward to next year!


  1. Looks like a great house and spot for a multi family vacation for sure! Glad you all had a good time.

  2. WoW...looks and sounds perfect!! love the family photo, that tree was a great spot!!

  3. Looks like the perfect spot for all your growing bunch! I'm so glad the new accomodations were just right. What a wonderful "memory-maker" for all the kids!

  4. Looks like you had a great time with family at the beach, Debbie. Were you in St. Augustine? My brother used to live there on the island --and that area looks familiar....

    You asked how we keep the names straight when it comes to our flowers.. Hubby keeps a spreadsheet ---and we also try to mark each plant.... It's still not easy!!!!!! ha


  5. Looks beautiful! I want to do this when my kids have kids. Thanks for sharing!

  6. It looks like your vacation was "awesome!" in a fabulous kind of way. Your grandchildren will always have the memories that are made with family during these vacations. What a good tradition. Family photo is wonderful.

  7. Don't you just do a double take when you actually see your family on a photo, all together? I still find it hard to believe sometimes.
    Great photos!
