They give you a rather thick brochure here with check in materials, too, entitled "Where to Eat at the Beach".

I did throw together this little phone holder for my wrist, which I don't know will hold up in the long run, but will do in the interim...

Made on the same principle as a two-sided pot holder, open at the top, with a reinforced strap.

Good morning, Maggie. Reading of your emotional reaction to your visit to Doug's bench......I could not help myself....I began to weep for you. (Sympathy tears, I suppose). It is not unusual for tears to flow at 3 years, or even later, when memories flow, or when even thinking of one loved and lost.

After my Lynn died, memories could start the tears up....even after ten years or more. And that is o.k. It is good to allow yourself those cathartic moments....clears the cobwebs off the heart.

God bless you and Lily. I am so relieved the tornados kept their distance! Continue having fun, you two! Evelyn.

I guess it's all just there, and will resolve in its own time, if ever....grief is the price we pay for love, as they say.

We had an early walk on the beach this morning, then a second one into the mash of funky little coffee and other shops just a matter of blocks from here.

Having a coffee, and sitting outside, a couple of women about my age stopped to chat....from not only New York, but from Huntington on Long Island, where my father and his siblings were raised by their Danish immigrant parents, and my favorite aunt & uncle lived.

They have a house in NY, also one here on Tybee Island...and invited me for dinner tomorrow night.

What?

I of course accepted, they will pick me up, and I will bring wine.

I extended my stay here til Sunday morning.

Maggie

Now, that sounds like an excellent adventure to me.

We snuck out to the beach for a long walk first thing this am....warm enough that Lily headed into the water without any persuasion from me.

After lamenting not having found any olives (seashells) yet this trip, the beach was littered with them this morning...mostly tiny ones, but a handful of larger ones just in the area we walked.

The state shell of South Carolina, you know. Lovely.

Dumped the tanks...I cooked yesterday, generating pots/pans and more than the average amount of dishes/dishwater...and then took a drive to look around Tybee a bit.

Unremarkable, but for its preservation, but very pretty.

Not Edisto, however, the bar by which all low country islands are compared.

Edisto is special, and if you've ever been there, you know why.

As darling daughter and her sweet hubby will be moving into their new house the third weekend of February, I moved my two weeks in Charleston up so that I can have that and still be there with them. My next major stop.

There is a young couple from Michigan here who are traveling for a month in a Rialto...with 3, 2 and 1 year old children.

They're having a blast, and the kids are loving the beach.

Maggie

The two women from New York, who spontaneously invited a complete stranger to come for dinner, cooked me a delicious meal and were absolutely delightful.

Friends for 44 years, raised their kids together, took vacations with their families together....cook together as if they've been doing it for decades, because they have.

A very enjoyable evening, and one of the nicest things anyone has ever done for me.

My host last evening mixed me a favorite cocktail of theirs..."Honey Jack & Ginger", which was delicious.

This, plus ginger ale or ginger beer, over ice... plus a dark, sweet, cherry immersed within, because she hates maraschinos.

Doug would have loved it.

Woo Maggie! I'm going to have to try that. Laura and I are in Bartlesville OK for her Dad's funeral. He was 95 years young,active right up to the end. She spoke with him over the phone last Saturday evening and he was fine. We got the call from her brother on Sunday noon that he had been found unconscious on the floor in his room. Massive stroke. He was still breathing but the spirit had departed. On Monday around noon the body figured it out and quit too. We were already on the road when we got the news. That took some of the pressure off as there was no point in hurrying any more.

So sorry to hear that, Gerard...my condolences to you both.

Yep, this little concoction was good.

I'm more a wine...or these days, Prosecco ...girl, but an occasional mixed drink is kind of fun.

We would mow, do housework, yardwork, laundry, etc., of a summer Saturday, and as the day was winding down and we were thinking about grilling something yummy, Doug would invariably say..can I mix you a drink, baby?

Gin and tonic or Jameson & Ginger were the standards, perhaps a Manhattan if his mixologist self was kicking in.

A nice change, a mixed drink, and I will be buying a bottle of this.

Maggie

It was a very enjoyable evening.

Did a little laundry this morning, then walked Lily back to a little shop that was not open when I was thru there the other day...I wanted a tshirt or hoodie or some such item from here and had not seen anything elsewhere that even remotely appealed to me.

Did find one in here, a nice little local place, with items not too flashy.

http://latitude32.us/

Everyone seems to have their own logo, and are selling coffee mugs, candles, etc., reflecting it.

I have enough mugs...having acquired two more already this trip...tho I was sorely tempted by the large cappuccino mug in Tybean, the coffee place where I stopped in again today. I didn't, tho.

One of the things I love about this campground is their asphalt interior roads, and their white graveled campsites...packed down into the sand, as if one of those big rollers has been over them.

Makes for a very clean outside surface, with very little sand then making its way inside.

I like.

Maggie

It has been warm enough in some recent days that the vicious little no-see-ums that inhabit these parts have been out, and Lily has been especially uncomfortable from bites.

Scratching vigorously just makes them inflame, and her to itch more, so last evening a neighbor suggested and offered a Benadryl tablet that they give their dogs...which helped tremendously, and I gave her another this morning.

She seems much more comfortable today, and so we took a late morning walk to the little pharmacia here to lay in a supply of our own.

Sitting outside afterwards, sharing a water with Lily, several people stopped to pet and admire my sweet doggie, one of whom shared that they had just lost a dog they'd had for 15 years.

So hard, and I don't even want to think about the reality that Lily's time with me actually has an expiration date.


Whatever our professional leanings have been, I have heard from others what I experience myself...that folks who have needs our particular expertise can help with find their way to us, over and over again, wherever they are.

For me, it is wounded souls who find their way to me.

Part of travel, it seems, practicing our respective craft wherever we happen to be..giving a little to those who need what we have, and taking a little from others in turn.

Seems a reasonably good way to continue to make small contributions to humanity and our fellow man, hmmm?

Maggie
