We Need An Island!

Seabrook Island – South Carolina – 2020

We are island people. We don’t live on an island, but we love them. We are in need of a getaway, it’s been a long, long, long time… It started with Mackinac Island (MI), and Harsen’s Island (MI), then morphed to Monhegan Island (ME) and Seabrook and Kiawah Islands (SC) – the pull of tranquility can be overwhelming at times. #thisisoneofthosetimes I took this photo last year on a day trip to Seabrook. We had the best time ever!

I took this photo last year when a friend invited us to her place on Seabrook. We could only go for the day because we didn’t want to board Charlie during a pandemic, but we made the most of a day. We walked and explored, had lunch on the balcony overlooking the water, and then walked some more. At that point we had been in the house/yard for 7 months, so it felt good to go somewhere. There is nothing better than walking on the beach during the season where there are few people. It regenerated us to get us through many more months. I am so thankful that fall is in the air! At the very least more time can be spent outside, and that’s a treasure!

PS, in this image Fred is in the distance, down a beautiful walkway that leads to the water. #heavenonearth

    I see Fred in the distance. I looked for a white shirt.
    It was the writer Rachel Field who said that once you have slept on an island you will never be quite the same.
    The first island I slept on was Star Island one of the Isles of Shoals off the Maine and NH coastlines. I was there for a week with Geof and Randy about 1978. Star has joint ownership by the Unitarian Universalist Church and the Congregational Church and they run conferences all summer. Look up Star Island if for no other reason than to see the big old hotel.
