There is so much more to do at the beach then plant your umbrella and watch the waves roll in. Of course there is swimming, castle building, throwing things (like Frisbees, footballs, beach balls etc) and just sitting in a chair people watching (like I did).
I ran into a guy at the bird feeding station at Huntington Beach State Park and he told me that there was a nesting pair of Oyster Catchers near the Marshwalk in Murrells Inlet. They were to be seen just off Veterans Pier. Really cool looking water fowl, just wish I had a longer lens. This is the same place that I took all the Pelican photos.
I finally got my little cottage rented out this morning!
Imagine my surprise when I heard a wren singing in my back garden when I got up. I watched as they busily finished a nest that was already in the house. The female is already sitting in there. I'm guessing this must be their second brood. Love to hear their singing....like a babbling brook. Hope they stay and successfully raise their chicks in my cute little cottage.
Thinking of my Dad on this Father's Day weekend and missing him very much. This is such a typical pose for him and the white shoes......He had a great sense of humor and my kids still quote his words of wisdom which were often pretty silly but that was just Grandpa. I don't think that we appreciate people until after they are gone from this world so I am taking today to remember a great Dad.
This church graveyard is right next door to the Nathaniel Russell House as you can see. I didn't take too many photos because rain was threatening. Some very old stones, many unreadable but the cemetery was well cared for.
This one reads:
Captain Duncan Hill
Who departed this life April 18th, 1790
Old stones lines up against the wall...these were in better condition. I love reading the inscriptions
