The Easy and Pleasant Life

"The Inhabitants of Carolina, thro' the Richness of the Soil, live an easy and pleasant Life."
~John Lawson 

Our first vacation with the Munchkin was a complete success. We spent a week on the beach in South Carolina and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It also helped to jump start the spring for us Northerners (though, I'm currently in sandy beach/sundress withdrawal). I took lots of pictures and even did some sandy crafting. We went to a gorgeous botanical garden, spent part of every day lounging on the beach, ate some grits, and saw some gators. I even discovered my inner Kookaburra at a local zoo.  Here is a brief photo recap:
We flew. 

We found the beach.

We built with an intention to fail.

  We gathered.

We connected with our inner Kookaburra.
We sculpted mermaids.

We were thankful we did not have these back home.
We wandered in a garden.

We were jealous of the rosemary (and in awe of the buns). 

We giggled at a piggle.

We found tranquility.

 We intend to return. :-)
