Since it was lightening when I woke up, I did not go for a walk on the beach. I stayed on the balcony and watched the waves come in. No sunrise pictures were taken on day 7 because there was no beautiful sunrise :(. I do have a picture or two of the clouds though.
After everyone got up for the day, we headed to do some geocaching, If you don’t know what it is, Google it. While we were at the first park, I got to take pictures of the Bridge and watched a family crabbing. That was cool!
After we left that park, we headed to another park to get a geocache. I stayed in the car because there wasn’t any cool scenery for me to take a picture of. By that time, we were tired of the bugs eating us. So we headed to Piggly Wiggly and got some bug spray.
Hubby and I both wanted to eat at the ‘Wich Doctor for lunch but it was not open until noon so we headed out to the beach that overlooks Morris Island Lighthouse before hitting up that local joint. Once we got to the beach, we found my sister-in-law, brother-in-law, and nephew there. They had been fishing out there all morning. My nephew caught his first ocean fish! We got to see dolphins swimming out in the water while we were at the beach. That was cool seeing their fins while swimming.
We took our usual pictures with the Morris Island Lighthouse as the backdrop. The Imaginative One and Wee One were not so cooperative when I was trying to get their picture taken together. Argh!
Once we left the beach and got to the car, I discovered my foot had red ants on it. The Imaginative One with all his random knowledge told me not to put water on my foot because it would make them attack more. I was able to brush them off and immediately put the topical Benadryl on my toes that were bitten.
We did end up going to the ‘Wich Doctor for lunch. Hubby tried their pizza and I got a Greek tuna salad sandwich with olives and capers and pickled green bananas, carrots and daikon. A local told us how it is favorite local restaurant. 🙂 The food was delicious.
While we were waiting for our food to be cooked, the boys and I went to get them shaved ice. They were promised the shaved ice the night before but because of the rain, we could not get it.
The rest of the day was spent being out on the beach. I once again cooked supper for the whole family. This time I made sloppy joes. The hamburger was still not fully defrosted even though it had been in the fridge for almost 24 hours. I was able to work around it this time though.
After dinner, the Wee One and I went for a walk on the pier. We watched a young adult throw peanuts into the air and the sea gulls catching it. They even gave the Wee One a peanut so he could feed the sea gulls.
After our walk on the pier, we went to Sugartime and got some treats and ice cream. It was nice to spend quality time with the Wee One.
After we got back from our walk, we sang “Happy Birthday” to my father-in-law and sister-in-law. Then we enjoyed the brownies that were baked to celebrate their birthdays.
More adventures later . . .
