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 was 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 walking, I talked to a local who was out taking pictures. He even took my picture. Then the Imaginative One and I got 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 the church started at 9:00 am, and the other said it started at 11:15. I realized the mix-up sometime after 10. I decided to walk down to the church anyway, just in case. Since I missed the church service, I continued walking, ended up at Black Magic, and ordered a chocolate croissant. It was delicious, but they gave Hubby a moldy cheese Danish on the day we left, 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. Whenever I turned around, he was putting new items into our I had a list in mind and deviated a little from the list.
We returned 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 would make, so when I saw shrimp, grits, and chocolate pecan pie, my heart skipped a beat. My hubby was unhappy because he loves grits but is not so sure about 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 was making dinner, we noticed 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 was 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.
After dinner, the boys went 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.
