We did quite a bit of sitting around and catching up with family, playing outside Della, and watching her try to chase cats and dogs around the house. We also went to the beach (yay for warm weather!), took a boat ride, spent a few minutes in downtown Charleston (if you haven't been there, you need to go), and I got to catch up with my bff from high school.
We took the boat out on the Intracoastal Waterway off Edisto. Can I just say that I love being on the boat? I do. My dad won this boat in a Carp tournament many years ago, so it's been part of many fantastic memories in my life. I'm a water girl and I could have spent the week on the boat.
We were out during high tide, so we got to explore some of the tide creeks and look for alligators. We didn't see any, but we did see an eagle and an osprey.
I wasn't sure if Della would love the boat or hate it, but thankfully she loved it. This was her first time, and she was not scared in the least--not even when we went fast!
I just think this is a cute shot. She enjoyed sporting her summer clothes and exploring the house. Rocking chairs on the front porch? Yep, she has that one down.
This was actually a few days before we left for vacation when we had something akin to Spring weather here. I'm not sure what happened, but the day after we returned from 80 degrees in Charleston it snowed here. I made this dangerous* pasta with tomato cream sauce (*dangerous=delicious and I can't stop thinking about it two weeks later), which we both enjoyed at dinner for several nights in a row.
Up later this week: a baby update and some preview shots of the living room quilt!
One more shot of a side creek of the Intracoastal.
