We headed out of Florence at 8AM and were soon on our way. I found a Super Walmart right off of I-95 and was able to quickly do the grocery shopping.

We're here!

There's the house beyond the trees.

It was great having a houseful of people to help unload the car. I'm used to doing all the heavy work myself.

Everyone put on their suits and headed out on the creek. My sister and I stayed in and put everything away. Then we went to Piggly Wiggly to buy chicken necks and ice cream. The chicken is for the crabbing I'll be doing first thing in the morning. The ice cream is because I'm an addict.

This is me, and the water is at low tide, so I'm standing. You can see the pfluff mud that gets exposed as the tide gets lower. We had so much fun in it. We were covered from head to toe. We slid in it, rolled in it, and acted like, well, kids.

We stayed in the water for hours. When we got out, I did 3 haircuts. I have 2 more to go.

We had a late night dinner of Roasted Vegetable Sandwiches (Southern Living and delicious) and salad. Yum.

There's a line to get on this computer, so I better give it up. I'll update tomorrow.

Looks like you are really enjoying yourselves! I don't know about all that mud though. :-)
I just LOVE ice cream too. I have a small bowl almost EVERY night.
Have fun!!

I'm so unhappy, I just finished my book. I wish there was a follow up of Scout and Jem's lives so that finishing the book wouldn't be so hard... Now I have to do all of the journals to finish this all up :[
