A good part of September was spent catching up with family and friends. We had one last “hoorah” at our NC home base before we started our fall travels.
I was ecstatic that my daughter, Ashleigh, could join in. I didn’t think that I would get to see her again before Christmas.

I got to see my parents twice….once over Labor Day weekend by myself and then Dan and I went to Cedar Point Campground which is very close to their home. It was a mix of work and fun. Dan helped with a few maintenance chores and I was tasked with a beautification project. Mom had bought some more plants for her flower garden and I planted them for her, weeded, and trimmed.
But, it wasn’t all work. We had plenty of time for fun.

We always have such a good time with Cathy and Bruce and this visit was no exception. We had to work around the weather but we didn’t let that stop us from having fun. We were able to fit in a 15 mile bike ride on Daniel Island (no pictures as I didn’t bring my camera due to the imminent rain!), saw my niece Ciara and met her boyfriend Bryan, shopped for new Merrell’s for Dan, enjoyed one heckuva great meal out at Page’s Okra Grill, learned a new game called Molkky, and spent the day boating. Yes, we were bone tired after the weekend!

Sunday turned out to be a picture perfect day to be on the water. We put the boat in at Remley’s Point on the Wando River. We were on the water by 9:30.

We saw sooo many dolphins. I don’t think that Cathy or I could ever tire of seeing them.
We stopped by an isand to eat lunch and play Molkky. Dolphins were coming right up to where the waves were breaking. It was very cool to watch.
