SC Vacation Pictures

We were in South Carolina for vacation which explains the lack of posts in August. We had a blast and Benjamin enjoyed himself and learned a lot about nature in the process. Among the activities we did in addition to playing at the beach was a round of putt putt golf, a trip to Charleston SC, an adventure to Brookgreen Gardens and a lot of playtime both at the beach and in Mom's golf course back yard.

We had a nice visit from Uncle David and Mom's friends Ed and June. We read, did jigsaw puzzles and played games too. We ate well all week and went on a shopping trip at an outlet in Myrtle Beach and I even got to take in a Myrtle Beach Pelicans game (pics to follow in a later post). I'll let these pictures do the talking. As usual, please click for an enlargement. Enjoy!

I have no idea what kind of spider this is but I would
check on it daily.

Birds would nest here. The barrier below keeps snakes
and other animals from eating the eggs and birds.
