From the deck

Composing and editing on a screen in my lap is daunting! I have not been in South Carolina since I was a teen, and we know how long ago that was.

Carol and Frank live on a lake.


I liked the gold center of this leaf.


Back to the lake, there is an osprey nest on top of the pole, and turtles sunning on the "dock" attached.


No grass to mow!


More lake.




Laura leaving to swim in the ocean.


A restaurant on the ocean for supper.


Enough arguing with formatting. Off to Charleston.

  16. Nice pics. I think people are smart today by not trying to clear land to put in grass that doesn't grow well in the location

  17. Those lake views are gorgeous, imagine waking up to that every single day :)
    I hope the ocean wasn't too cold for Laura. I know you have summer there now, but it always takes time for the water to warm up even a little bit after a hard winter, or even our milder winters.

  21. Ooooh, summertime does make me think: Get to a lake!!!

    Camping, after many years of not doing a stitch of it, could be on the cards this summer.

  24. vacation! looks gorgeous. I always wondered why I ended up here in the middle of flat agricultural land when I love the woods and water so much. except I also love sun for flowers and gardens. and then, my sister was here.

  25. Enjoy! I hope you had a chance to eat some South Carolina BBQ. Their style of BBQ sauce is my favorite.

  26. Dear Joanne, looks like you and Laura are enjoying your vacation. When I lived in Minnesota--for 38 years--I used to go up north and camp by Lake Superior with a friend. I'd lie in my sleeping bag at night and listen to the waves hit the boulders on shore. I love water and to vacation by a lake or by the ocean would be, I think, nirvana! Peace.

  28. I love your posts. Sometimes I don't even read them all to the end, I just connect with you. I am a very introverted reader and I connect with you politically and intellectually and you are my voice in the political world, I am so proud of your loving and giving role in the life of your grandchildren. You are a real hero to me.
