I also loved seeing the alligators, and all of the beautiful birds in the marsh. I almost got a picture of a pink spoonbill bird but just as I got the camera set up it flew off. It makes me want to take pictures of wildlife more than ever. I talked to several people who lived at the beach that come out a lot and take pictures of the wildlife. Two different days while sitting on the beach we saw a bald eagle fly over the beach. One of the times the eagle was fighting with a osprey. I wish I would have had my camera with me then but not that lucky. We also saw around 30 dolphins right beyond the swimmers in the ocean one day. They were beautiful I tried to get a picture of them but you could not see them in the photo.
Seth also had a good time at the beach. His first day always plays on his anxiety but by bedtime he has regrouped and had a great time. He was talking about see a pretty girl on the beach when we got home. Frank was washing the car and Seth said "that girl just said "who is that good looking boy sitting beside Frank?" I play along with him and say " yeah wonder what his name is?" He sure is handsome!" He said " she just likes me don't she". I said "yes" she just wants your phone number but she was to scared to come and ask you." I just love that boy! We love to go to the lazy gator at Murrell's Inlet. We enjoyed sitting on the porch in the cool breeze in the rocking chairs.
We have often talked about living at the beach but I am not sure we would fit in. My dream is to just stay there all summer and live at home the rest of the year.
