Beach Time

We just got back from the South Carolina coast and a little beach time with our adult kids and grands. Even though our end of Summer beach trip was fun, we spent a lot of time watching the Weather Channel, and sending good thoughts and prayers for those with homes and loved ones in the path of Isaac.


Here's a gorgeous early morning view from our 20th floor balcony...I was holding on to the railing...and my camera...for dear life. :)  I'm a nervous nellie when it comes to heights.


We did the typical fun things, like strolling the boardwalk and checking out all the things to see and do...


...Tsunami zone? Uh...ok...moving on...


...fins to the left...fins to the right...early supper at LandShark Bar and Grill...fish sandwiches, shrimp baskets and burgers. Yum!


Speaking of fins...here's one of the shark's teeth I found on the beach. We guessed it was over an inch and a quarter long. We also found two others, but forgot to take a photo before "B" put them in his back pack to take home.

There was lots of time for our DIL and 4 yr. old to play in the water...


...and 15-month-old to stroll with Daddy, and look for sea shells.


We enjoyed shelling and looking for shark's teeth. Just look at some of the shells the grands found for us to take home. LOL, and these are the "pretty" ones.


Well, it's almost time to put away the beach towels and flip flops. Fall will be here soon.
Y'all have a great Labor Day weekend!
Hugs,
Babs

Have a safe and Happy Labor Day…

Looks like you had great weather and wonderful beach time. I haven't been to the Atlantic since I was a child. We used to camp at Myrtle Beach in the 60's, there was a camping location right on the beach. What fun!

What an awesome vacation! Tsunamis? Who knew? Thanks for thinking of us down in NOLA. We weathered the storm well but still no electricity. xo

Looks like you had a wonderful time! You have such GORGEOUS PICTURES to remember it by! The water looks so inviting, and seeing as the shark have LOST THEIR TEETH it's safe to go into the water(I could not resist saying that, hehe). WOW what a view from your balcony!!!
When we visit California I always found the earthquake signs disturbing. I've never seen a TSUNAMI sign, "YIKES"!!!
Thank you for sharing your fun,
Have a wonderful week,
Hugs,
Donna
