We had beautiful weather while were there, and spent a lot of time just laying on the beach and playing in the waves.
The waves were good sized when the tide was coming in...we loved to ride the waves on our floats!
We visited an old rice plantation, that has been converted into a sculpture garden, wildlife refuge, and small zoo. It was very interesting and beautiful. The nice thing about it was once you had purchased your ticket, you could visit for 6 more days! So we went there two days and just wandered around...it was very relaxing.
I love Spanish Moss in the old trees...I learned that Spanish Moss is neither Spanish nor moss! It is actually part of the pineapple family...can you believe that?
My sister and I took a day for shopping while our dad stayed at the house. I found a neat cat store in one of the shopping areas, and bought a very strong smelling catnip toy for each of the boys. Devon and Tanner loved theirs! Smokey sniffed and then moved on...has anyone else noticed with older cats that they don't care as much for catnip? Smokey is 13, and I've noticed he doesn't get as crazy with it as the other boys.
Tanner was a happy boy when I got home...he loved his gift, and was in need of many snuggles. The petsitter said he had played with her some, so maybe he is getting better :)
Auntie's cat Pirate enjoyed his catnip toy too...he only has three legs. AARRGGHH!
All in all the time away was nice. The boys loved having me home and they slept hard all day on Saturday...they were worn out! Everyone came in the night for snuggles, which I was happy to give them. It's nice to be loved :)
