South Carolina Vacation: Birthday Celebration

My birthday was on Thursday, February 23.

Bob made breakfast.

Bob made a big breakfast of scrambled eggs, brown n serve sausage and fried potatoes with onions. This breakfast got my birthday off to a good start!

We spent a few hours late morning and afternoon with our friends, Marge and Neil H, at their Garden City Beach rental oceanfront condo. 

Marge and Neil’s condo is located at One Ocean Place.

We chatted with Marge and Neil for a while on their 10th floor balcony, enjoying each other’s company as well as the view of the beach and ocean at our feet.  A short time later we ate lunch, prepared by their grandson Lex.  Lex and his parents, Michael and Andrea, were visiting with Marge and Neil for a few days. Lunch was a salad with a sweet and spicy dressing and a rice, spam and seaweed dish as a main entree.  The seaweed held together the rice and spam.  It was my first experience eating seaweed.  Lex did a great job with lunch … really tasty!  It was great seeing Lex again.  We last saw him several years ago, when he was a young boy.  He is 14 years old now.  We enjoyed also seeing and chatting with Lex’s parents.

Before leaving, Bob and I went for a walk on the beach with Marge and Neil.

There were lots of golf carts on the beach that day.
I love these colorful beach cottages.

Spending time with our friends was a great way to celebrate my birthday!

That evening, after dinner (leftovers from the previous night), Bob and I went for a walk in our neighborhood.  We walked to Floral Lake, as we did the previous night.

This picturesque entrance near our rental caught my eye.

At Floral Lake we walked across the footbridge. As happened the previous night, turtles began to multiply beneath the footbridge.

There are lots of turtles in Floral Lake!

From Floral Lake we returned to “Nanny & Pops”’ our Airbnb rental.
