Greetings from the Island Without Internet

Okay, I have a really great excuse for not posting for a while. We are vacationing with my side of the family (this year that adds up to 22 people) at a place called Edisto Island, South Carolina. It's about an hour outside of Charleston and my family has been coming here for more than 30 years.

I've heard it described as Mayberry with a beach. There are no high rise hotels, just a few restaurants, and one Piggly Wiggly. The night life consists of Bingo on Tuesday and Thursday nights sponsored by the Lion's Club, walking along the beach watching the sunset, and playing card games at the kitchen table.

We started today with a bike ride, continued with a game of putt putt, spent a few hours riding waves at the beach, followed by a dip in the pool, watched a movie during lunch/naptime, the boys went fishing with their grandpa, my sister made a fabulous dinner, another bike ride, another frolic in the waves at sunset, and we played a bunch of games together till the yawns took over the laughter.

I guess the only thing we are lacking is an internet connection--and really that's not such a bad thing. The house we are sharing doesn't have Wifi but my brother-in-law has a wireless card so he is graciously letting me use his laptop so I can say hi to my bloggy friends. I have much to share but it may just have to wait till we return home.

I hope you all are having some sweet summer days with those you love, too!

More Than Lots,

Sounds like my kind of vacation! We've been to Hilton Head a few times, but it's definitely not "Mayberry!" Have a great vacation!

This kind of vacation sounds like a slice of heaven! I think you're right that not having internet can be a VERY good thing but I also understand feeling "disconnected" from my blog friends when I don't have it.
Enjoy this time with family and the many,many memories you're making with your newest family member!

Love, Kristin

I just want to know if you will ever be coming back to real life? If I were you, I would just stay there and do an oceanography study with the kids for the school year:)
Sounds perfect!
