Finally the Beach – Day 3 Part 2

Join me on Saturdays for posts about our South Carolina trip.

We finally got to Folly Beach. It took us 20 to 30 extra minutes at the very end of the drive.

Folly Beach is a barrier island with only one road going in and out of town. Since it was Saturday afternoon, tourists were traveling to the beach for their vacations or local people were going to the beach.

We got stuck in the traffic because of that back up.

Since we were the first of our family to get to Folly, we picked up the keys and headed to the house. When we got to the house, there were two vehicles in the parking area. We were confused until Hubby went into the house. The vehicles belonged to the cleaning ladies. Whoever rented the house the week before had left a mess. It was taking them longer to get it clean.

So what did we do while they were cleaning? We went out to the beach. The Wee One was anxious to get into the ocean.

A little bit later, my mother-in-law showed up with food for us to cook. It was interesting trying to figure out how to use a gas stove because neither of us had ever used a gas stove before.

We sent out Hubby to the local store to get butter, ketchup, mayo, and mustard because we didn’t have any of that in the house. He came back with everything but butter. He heard the b sound so he thought we said buns.

As we sat down to eat, my sister-in-law and her family showed up. Fortunately, she had frozen some butter and had brought it down. She saved the day because we were eating corn on the cob with our dinner.

The rest of the evening was spent unpacking, walking on the beach, and sitting on the porch.

Here photos from the beach that evening.

We had to be careful on the beach because there were loggerhead turtle nesting areas throughout the area. The Imaginative One even said he saw the flipper imprints of a loggerhead turtle close to one of the nesting areas. So cool.

Join me next Saturday when I attend church at the Folly Beach United Methodist Church.

Have a magical day,
