Morning to night

I'm visiting my good friends Marilyn and Paul in Surfside, South Carolina and it's heavenly here. 

The view from their balcony is amazing.  First thing this morning this woman was enjoying the sound of the waves while she walked her dog.

We went to the Prince Creek Diner for breakfast and then spent the day at Brookgreene Gardens - a wonderful combination of trees, flowers, sculptures, critters (a zoo) and birds, birds, birds.

We finished the day back at the condo with this sunset.


  1. Oh my goodness...what fabulous pictures. Especially the birds. You are so lucky to be there, we are expecting a big winter storm to come rolling through tonight.

  2. How absolutely beautiful. Was that a squirrel curled up on a tree branch? And I loved the birds as well. Thank you so much.

  3. Hope you are enjoying all the fun and sun, not to mention all the great birds! - Margy

  4. Really surprised to see that little fox in a tree. Can't say that I've ever seen one like that before. I imagine it's beautiful down there in comparison to our northern life! We just got about four inches of snow yesterday and it's all melted {about} today. Your weather must have been similar in Canada, not being too far from me, this winter. Crazy weather we've had, unlike any I've ever witnessed before.

    Enjoy the remainder of your time there, Elaine :)
