|The week was also full of some excellent tea parties.|
While we were on Sullivan's Island, Ellie saw many of the animals she has read about in her books. We saw: a horseshoe crab, a hermit crab, jellyfish, minnows, seagulls, pelicans, a whelk, a blue crab, dolphins, and a shark! We were walking back from the tide pool one evening and Ellie said to Pete, "Daddy, what's that?" (we had seen dolphins the previous evening). I was looking for seashells and I suddenly heard Pete jump a few feet in the air as he said, "Whoa! That's a shark!!" Sure enough, there was a three-foot long shark, about four feet away from us swimming along the shore. It swam alongside the shore as we walked along for a few feet, and eventually turned its tail and headed back out to sea.
For Rachael and Julie: Yes, the food post was from memory. I used the picture dates to help me get everything in correct order, but the entrees are etched on my mind!
It was a great week with great friends - can't wait to do it again!
