My sweetie and I are going to Charleston, SC all by ourselves. Remember last post I said we were on Plan B. Well, we ended up on like Plan D or E.....maybe F or G. But, ahh, at last, we found THE place. The place that we both liked the looks of and the location and the atmosphere. We will actually be staying across the harbor in Mount Pleasant, but the hotel is right on the harbor, with a marina out front, a sandy beach ~no swimming, but sand to stick your toes in, overlooking huge amounts of water! There are chairs and swings out on the beach, low lit at night. And, we can take the shuttle over to Charleston to the historic district and shops. I'm just too excited. It quickly became obvious that one of the things I had my heart set on as we were looking for somewhere to go was water. Big water. I love the rivers and streams we have here, but nothing does my spirit good like looking out over big water~~calm lakes, the ocean, or a harbor. Did I mention how excited I am? Just the two of us, big water, and sand! I will miss my girls, but.......did I mention how excited I am?
I'm also happily looking forward to August when the whole family will be going to the Gulf Coast, FL. We have a 3 bedroom townhouse right on the gulf.....nothing but sand between my door and the water.
I guess I'm going through "big water and sand" withdrawals. We didn't go to the beach last year. However, I did remember as I was typing that I did get an hour on the water and some sand to wiggle my toes in when we went to Jamestown in Oct.
I love to go new places and see new sites, but there's just something about the sand and water (most especially the gulf) that draws me and ministers to me. That was the best hour of the whole trip to me. : ) I guess I have it pretty bad.
