Outdoor Wednesday...bird watching...

Nothing like a pair of homemade binoculars (working on the pronunciation)
to keep "Mr. Vundervants" busy.

Waiting patiently for a blue bird or a robin to appear.

Not a bird in sight on this sun filled 70* day.

"Mr. Vundervants" is not impressed and thinks all this bird watching is definitely for the birds!

A bit of humor to make you SMILE...

Here is a joke my husband passed onto me and I would like to share it with all my blogging friends because everyone can use a bit of humor to make them SMILE.

Last night, my kids and I were sitting in the living room and I said to them,

"I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle.

If that ever happens, just pull the plug."

They got up, unplugged the Computer, and threw out my wine .

They are SO on my s*** list!

I'm back...Hilton Head...Outdoor Wednesday...Watery Wednesday...

I am back to blogging again on the my new computer. I was able to save some files and some photos thankfully. It is amazing how we all have come to depend upon our computers.

We took a quick trip down to the beach house to get it ready for the summer months. We had some friends come down to join us for the weekend and the weather was glorious. I had my first walk of the 2010 season to wiggle my toes in the warm sand and to dip my toes in the blue waters of the Atlantic ocean. Lots of folks in the water but it was a bit too cold for me to take the full body plunge just yet. Our little area of the beach was quiet and calm before the tourist season officially begins on Memorial day.

There are many trees along the dock draped with Spanish moss that twist and turn toward the ocean as they grow. I love to ride my bike to the docks after dinner and enjoy the sunset views.

Here I am with my friend Joyce this weekend. Yes we are the "Two Joyce's". It gets very confusing when our husbands call out our names. It sounds like stereo with both of us answering. We met a few years ago on a tour to Italy with our husbands. Joyce is a fun and easy house guest and loves the beach as much as I do. I think that Joyce was a mermaid in a previous life as she jumps right into the ocean no matter what the temperature. She makes the most delicious chocolate covered pretzels but we ate them all before I remembered to take a photo.

I invite you to follow along with me this summer as I share more Hilton Head Island, S.C. photos as well as the surrounding areas of this magical island.
