When you play golf here.....think twice about retrieving your golf ball out of the water.

Where's The Mouse

Hamish knows there is a mouse somewhere! We were enjoying the rain and storms a few weeks ago.

Trees Here are.....Old

The trees in Beaufort are just amazing. Old and gnarled. Most have Spanish Moss lavished all over them. This one is on Paris Island near the golf course.


Even simple lights, in this case just the fuel sign and dock lights reflected in the water are beautiful. Im not sure a photo does them justice, but here they are.

Some Pictures I have taken in the past few months

Ever After with the mainsail up

Our friends took this picture of us on our way to Shelter Cove in Hilton Head. They passed us before we were able to get the jib up as well but here we are finally sailing somewhere!

Our trip to Shelter Cove, Hilton Head

We just got back from a great weekend sailaway to Disney's Shelter Cove in Hilton Head or near it.
We sailed with several other boats from our marina and met up at the marina there. We had a great time playing Pirate Put Put miniature golf and had two REALLY outstanding dinners.
the weather was beautiful, the boat handled nicely and the dogs did well. I think Hamish loved it and Phoenix thought it was just ok. They wore their life vests and stayed up in the cockpit with us most of the time. Hamish loved looking out at all the birds and porpoise. Tomorrow I should have lots more pictures to post including one Michele and Gene took of our boat from their boat.
Barry is making ham sandwiches so Im gonna go for now. One thing about traveling on your own boat which is our full time home......Barry does not have to pull over in order for me to pee. I just go below to the head! Very cool. Plus I didnt have to worry about what to pack. Everything I have is with me below!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dolphin encounter of the first kind

Last night on my way up to the boaters deck for game night, a dolphin was in the shallows feeding.
He was right under the bridge lazily going back and forth feeding on the millions of bait fish there.

Im used to seeing them here and there sometimes daily but this was at least a 15 or 20 minute encounter. Also he was so close and it was shallow so I could see his whole body. He swam in surprisingly shallow water and on his side. At one point his tail was sticking up in the air flopping back and forth. No I did not have my camera or cell to ask Barry to grab it when he came up a few minutes behind me. Im going to be there at the same time this evening and see what I can see.
It was amazing and I would love to share it with you.
