June ran off

The day after school ended, my kids and I went to Hilton Head Island to have some fun. It had been ages since I had been on the island. I was relieved to see the low country rules of keeping signs at street level were still in place so most of my views were pines and palm trees for miles.

By far the biggest hits of the trip were Pirate Golf, feeding the turtles in the pond next to our dinner restaurant all the strawberries from our meals, and floating on inner tubes in the water.

After I dropped them off with their father and they headed off to summer camp, I got some much needed rest under tent on the beach, with a good book, poor cell signal, and a overly-friendly crab.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Beyond


Snapped this picture in Lisbon, Portugal during a November trip. The sun was setting and the castle was quickly becoming too dark to photograph with an iPhone.

If you visit the Castle of São Jorge, be sure to check out the periscope that gives you 360 degree views of the city.
