I had no time to write this morning and spent all day today on planes, so I’m late. You 11 people who read these things survived, no doubt.
Friday was a nice calm day, since Anita worked until noon. But then we set out to the mainland to visit the lovely town of Bluffton. It reminded me of Green Cove Springs in my youth. Lovely old h of huge trees covered in moss, with a beautiful river.
We ate lunch at a wonderful spot in an old house, called The Cottage. The food was hearty and sophisticated all at once. I got oysters, crab, and shrimp in a delicious sauce, over cheese grits. Heaven. Anita had a pot pie that she raved about.
After that joy, we found a marvelous boutique and I got an amazing poncho kind of top with sleeves. I can’t wait to wear it all winter.
The town has been beautifully preserved, with more work going on. All the new developments are out of the historical area.
There are many galleries, and we stopped at one, just planning to browse, but we met an artist who specializes in bird photos, and I was smitten. I got two prints, one of the marshes I’ve enjoyed so much this week, and one of azaleas and oak trees, which reminds my home in Gainesville.
And hey, we are human ladies, so we went to a good outlet mall after the Bluffton fun. I got a Kate Spade purse. So embarrassing, but it cost no more than a normal purse, and it has flowers on it. I needed a medium size purse. I have one.
This was the best and least stressful vacation I can remember. But I needed to see my dog! So we came home, with few mishaps. Lots of flights, but all went well.
I’m relaxing with some my honeysuckle whiskey and watching Vlassic sleep. He’s exhausted from having a zooming play date with neighbor dogs. Our dog sitter was SO good to him and Pickle! No wonder I was able to relax!
