I do have an outstanding immune system...due largely, I believe, to the supplements I have taken for many years at the direction of my beloved chiropractor/homeopath.

He is in his 80's and takes no prescription meds. Good enough for me.

I found the person who left the beautiful scallop shells for me yesterday....my neighbor who is in a UHaul travel trailer 50-60 years old, as I recall.

She goes miles down the beach to an inlet where huge, beautiful and intact shells can be found.....and promised to bring me some more.

I will reward her kind gesture with a candle made from the largest and prettiest.

We are having a near perfect day, warm and actually wind-calm enough that I sat outside for late coffee and to crochet this morning.

Also was able to unfurl my Sunbrella for our second beach walk a bit ago.

Life on the beach. Good to be here.


Maggie

72 outside, sunny and calm.

My neighbor brought me another sack of beautiful scallop shells....I have more shells than I know what to do with at this point. Have been weeding out and returning some to the shore...but, need to do more.

When I was out for water and to mail T's to the grands yesterday, went by Edisto Ace Hardware to pick up my glass percolator tops they had ordered for me last
Sunday.

They were in, but somewhere in the total, unpacked shipment, so I told them I would be back in a couple of days for them.

They called me this afternoon, had them.....and brought them directly to me so that I would not have to unhook et al to come back for them.

I love this place.


Maggie

We "love it too" and haven't even been yet.

Great thing about this forum is that it's highly likely someone had been to a place your considering and can pass on great information.

Remembering where all that great info is, is something else.

Two years ago today, I took my sweet hubby off life support, and he died 2 hours later.

I know for a fact that I am a better person for having known him, and for having had his love and presence in my life....and for that, I am grateful.

Rest in peace, honey.


Know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love. ~Leo Buscaglia

Thanks, folks.

For those who don't know, 2 years ago tomorrow I began the 975 or so mile drive home in the Interstate from Brunswick, GA....talking with Doug and planning his funeral in my head all the way there.

I drove it in 2 days, after dumping the holding tanks for the first time, ever. Yikes.

The overwhelming emotional support of the Airstream community here... thru this and since....has meant more to me than y'all will ever know, and I thank you.

We have had a long and fruitful walk on the beach already this morning....


Maggie

God bless you, Maggie. May your day be filled with fond memories of Doug.
(I'd be the same way if "PaulnGina" suddenly became "Paul".)

I think you are extremely blessed because you got to experience "two become one". Gina and I are enjoying that phenomenon..... 13 years last month.

Maggie,

I had just been looking back at the photo of Doug driving while Lily intently sat next to him.

You've come a long way, with Doug smiling and guiding your ways.

The only constant in life is change.

Thanks, ladies.

We were indeed fortunate to be bonded, and soul mates.

Everyone doesn't get that, and there ain't nothin' quite like it.

I miss him every day, but am doing quite well, I think, remembering him saying so often..."death is a part of life, and we don't get to choose". He who had too much experience with the sudden death of people close to him...he knew.

I don't feel him as closely with me as this time last year, but then my need for him is not as intense, and I'm sure that figures in. It's been an experience I could have done without, but....


My shell fairy brought me more huge scallop shells yesterday, as did an accomplice of hers.

I will not even try to turn all of these into candles for Alumalina, so will have some to foist off onto Moraine View friends and others who may want them this summer.

My neighbor and her friends camping here....a group of women from around SC who have known each other all their lives ...also gathered up some Indian pottery pieces from the same inlet area, arrowheads and a nearly perfect spearhead...intact but for the piece that would have been lashed onto the spear. Wow.

There are a lot of folks here with golf carts, that some take down the beach to the gazillion shells inlet that is a good 1 1/2 miles or so away. A very long walk....with no bathrooms.

Might rent a cart next year for part of my stay.

We are off for a walk to drop off garbage and to the grocery store here.


Maggie

Maggie, you are in my thoughts today. My evening rosary will be dedicated to Doug and you. You were both truly blessed in finding each other. You are so correct....not everyone finds that special bonded relationship. God bless you. Evelyn.

Some of my shells from Edisto and Saint George Island being watched over by a friend. The beach is guarded by this other fellow who was still there last time I was by. I think you have seen him before. JimClick image for larger version

Thanks, Evelyn.

Your shells are so very neat and organized, Jim. I'm impressed.

You should see the rats nest of shells I have right now. I'm going to have to leave some of them behind....but not the big scallop shells, they will stay.

Yes, the dragon is still in place. I walk by him every day, and my selected spot for next year is near there.

It is warm and beautiful here, and the winds remain calm. Warm enough that I'm going to have to dive beneath the benches to pull out warmer weather clothing, as it's going to be near 80 later in the week.

I think the Microfleece is done for the season.

Three good walks today, two on the beach, and Lily is down for the count....tho someone near us walks a cat on a leash, which nearly makes her apoplectic every single time she gets a whiff of that cat.

Why a cat on a leash...I do not know.


Maggie
