ever have a place that, for some reason,
just "speaks" to you?
for me, it's this place.
it is a small island off the
coast of charleston, and to me,
it is one of the most beautiful places
i have ever seen.
growing up, my family came here for vacation
several times, and allen and i began a
tradition of taking our kids here the week
after school got out. it was a week filled
with swimming and crabbing
and riding bikes
and making sand castles
and just having a fabulous time together.
the island is full of
beautiful live oak trees,
dripping with spanish moss,
has gorgeous beaches, and tons of wildlife.
when we moved across the country, one
of the things i mourned was not
being able to come to seabrook every summer.
(flying 5 people across the
country is just too expensive for us right now.)
i miss the ocean, the dunes, the marshes,
the beach, the trees, the scenery, and the
beauty of seabrook. but most of all,
i miss the time that i got to
spend here with my family.
i would love to own a
home here one day.
i have been looking for a "replacement" for it
on the west coast, so if you have any
suggestions, please let me know!
