I really like these photos I took of the 2nd Avenue Pier in Myrtle Beach (it’s right next to my hotel).   It was after sunset, and beginning to get cloudy (it’s supposed to be rainy tomorrow, ugh) but I think that makes these pictures a little moody and more interesting than those taken in full sunlight.

Tomorrow I’m going to try to get some photos of the sunrise. Hopefully it will be visible.

Today’s Featured Blog…Life Experiment Blog!!

Hello All 🙂

I do hope you are enjoying your summers! (Or Winter, depending on where you are in the world) Personally, things have been on super high speed since about a month before the wedding. We were so happy to just sit down and breathe when we returned. However, we quickly realized that there was so much left undone here that it was only time to ‘just do it’. So…that’s what we’ve been up to.

Today, I just couldn’t resist. The sun is shining beautifully and I had to run out with my coffee and just….enjoy it. No lists, no running to this place or the other, the dishes can wait, the work can wait.

If life is merely just a bunch of snapshots strung together, I want this moment in my file!

Danny’s World: I’m Headed To A Place Called Mimosa Hills

Today I’m playing golf with a friend who is a member at Mimosa Hills Country Club.  This place is near the mountains about an hour from Charlotte so it will be nice to get a little break from the heat and humidity, even if it is only a few degrees.  The course was built by a famous old architect, Donald Ross, in 1929.  There aren’t a lot of Ross courses remaining which haven’t been redesigned so today will be a treat.

I hope everyone has a great Saturday!

Danny’s World: I Got A Feelin’, That Today’s Gonna Be A Good Day…

I love my neighborhood early in the morning.  The birds are chirping and the animals are getting things done before the heat hits in the afternoon.  The moon is still out and the humidity is low.  Oh, and did I mention we are leaving for the beach tomorrow night?!  I think it’s going to be a good day!

Evelina and I are leaving Thursday evening or Friday morning to go to the beach house for a couple of days.  There are 2 things to which I am looking forward: late evening walks on the beach and eating the best fried chicken ever!  There is a grocery store that has a cafeteria line and makes fresh, homemade fried chicken, meatloaf, fried okra, mashed potatoes.  I’m getting hungry just thinking about their food!
