I am in awe of all those of you have consistently posted each day this month. Congratulations to all of you!
I took a bit of a break for over a week. My husband and I were traveling for spring break to Hilton Head, South Carolina. The posts I have written this March have been about relationships. That continues today. I have a deep love for, and relationship with, Hilton Head.
Spring break was both a literal and figurative breath of fresh air for me this year. I took some time for myself, and time with my husband, to regroup after several very difficult and emotional winter months. So, it seemed perfect to have planned a trip to Hilton Head, a place where I can always find some happiness and some inner peace.
So, what did I do that rejuvenated me?
Walking for hours on the beach
Soaking up the sun
Watching the waves lap up on shore
Watching from our oceanfront view
As the waves crashed on the shore
Bringing all sorts of debris with it
Fresh local shrimp
(grilled and steamed my favorite ways)
She Crab soup
Local crab cakes
Reading for hours on end
Suspense and thrillers
that found me crying in my beach chair
Fun beach reads
Trying out my new driver
not very successfully
but great weather
and my 6-iron keeping me happy
as I sat in my beach chair,
as I sat at the pool,
as I walked
Shopping on a rainy day
One of my go-to stores at HH
and they sell NO fruits or vegetables
with my husband
the sound and feeling of it
whenever I felt like it
and sometimes even when
I didn't mean to fall asleep
Awaking feeling refreshed
This was my relationship with Hilton Head this past week, and I am quite grateful.
