Summer Bucket List

I checked "go to the beach" off my summer bucket list! Last week I went to Garden City Beach, SC for a few days with my family.  My uncle's family has a beautiful house that they were kind enough to let us take over for a week. It is a perfect location.....overlooking the inlet marsh and only two rows over from the beach. Unfortunately we had the edges of a tropical storm for most of the time we were there, but even still I got to walk the beach every morning, and sit on the porch reading as well.  I only got a couple of hours to sit on the beach with my toes in the sand. Even still it was great, and I immediately came home and googled closest beaches to Winston-Salem.  I need to go back! I think it is so important to have a place or places where you can unplug, relax, and regroup.  Mountains, beach, big city, whatever works for you.  For me it is the beach....So no recipe today but just some pictures of my trip....

We only had a good sunset one day because of the storm....

The beautiful almost-full moon...

And a few more because you can't have too many pictures of the beach.

So thanks for indulging me with my beach blast.  I hope you have been able to enjoy some down time at a beach or your happy place this summer.
