Just so you know, we stayed at the beach with my in-laws (mother, father, sister, and brother) and my niece and nephew.
On Sunday, I was the first person up so I could see the sunrise. It was not as spectacular as it ended up being by the end of the week. After the kids got up (niece, nephew, the Wee One, and the Imaginative One), the Imaginative One and I went for a walk on the beach. While we were walking, I talked to a local who was out taking pictures. He even took my picture. Then the Imaginative One and I ended up getting rained because of a pop up rainstorm.
I then got ready for church but ended up not going because of a mix up in times. One place said church started at 9:00 am and the other said it started at 11:15. I realized the mix up some time after 10. I decided to walk down to the church anyway just in case. Since I missed the church service, I continued walking and ended up at Black Magic and ordered a chocolate croissant. It was delicious but on the day we left, they gave Hubby a moldy cheese Danish so I don’t recommend this place for pastries.
Since we had some time, we took the boys to the Piggly Wiggly to buy groceries. Hubby was having fun trying to find local goodies to eat. Every time I turned around, he was putting new items into our I had a list in mind and deviated a little from the list.
We got back to the condo and quickly ate lunch because Hubby and I had a date. We were going to go to a cooking demo at Charleston Cooks. We didn’t know what they were going to make so when I saw shrimp and grits and chocolate pecan pie my heart skipped a beat. Now Hubby was not so happy because he loves grits but is not so keen on shrimp. He tried the shrimp and actually loved it! (My mother and father – in – law had the boys.)
After the cooking demo, we walked around the market. We knew if we did that with the Wee One, he would beg us for everything and anything.
Then it was back to the condo. As the rest of the family were making dinner, we noticed there was something on the beach because a huge crowd gathered around it. Since we couldn’t see what it was, I ran/walked fast down to the beach with the four kids to be nosy. I’m glad we were nosy because it ended up being a live horseshoe crab. The Imaginative One really loved seeing it.
We were going to have dinner but since I was still mostly full from the cooking demo, I ate a yogurt parfait with the family since we were all sitting down for dinner as a family.
After dinner, the boys went down to the beach with the aunt and uncle while Hubby, my mother-in-law, and I walked on the pier. We got to see the sunset which was absolutely beautiful. It was a perfect end to a great day.
