beach trip

Saturday was a great day of enjoying the presence of family and extended family – our local family reunion. It is held the second Sat. in June each year at my older brother’s place a bit North of the Augusta, GA area.

My cousin and her husband came in from Tenn. Friday evening to spend a couple of nights with us and to attend the family event. The food was great as was the teasing and laughter. We started gathering around 11am with the official beginning shortly after 12.

Folks started gradually leaving a couple of hours later until it was down to the ‘hard core’ talkers and laughers. On toward 5pm we finally headed for home, bidding goodbye to folks from several cities in Georgia, South and North Carolina.

The Spice and I are leaving this morning (Sunday) for a week at Myrtle Beach, SC and they have no internet connections. My words for the week will be stored up and dumped on you folks when we get back next Saturday. This week will be a delayed anniversary trip – we were married 43 years back on the 2nd of June.

If the Lord wills and the creek don’t rise, I will see you on Saturday. ec

junierose - It was a wonderful getaway but good to be home.

AC - Some spice just improves with age. :)

boopchile - It is a very busy place in the summer. Where ever we go there is happiness because we take it with us.

granny - Thanks - our anniversary was actually back on the 2nd of June - 43 years together.

CGS - We had enough fun for several more folks.

merle - Thanks - it was a very good trip, even down to the sitting on the balcony the last night watching the fireworks on the beach.

bonita - It was a very happy journey, even though we had massive traffic on the way back.

jayleigh - We were as blessed as two best friends can be to be in each other's presence.

yours truly - Thanks - our time together doesn't seem long at all. Time flies when you are having fun. :) ec
