One Week in Paradise

People may mock our not so pristine 2005 Dodge Caravan. But it managed to tote 6 people, 6 bikes, 4 buggy boards and a weeks worth of food from Fort Mill to Edisto Island, in relative comfort I might add!

With England not being such a large country; family holidays for me usually meant an hours drive, with at least 3 stops on the way to eat the sandwiches mum had made for the journey. So by the time we had traveled a whole 3 hours, we were all pretty wasted. So my first port of call was the hammock. I actually lay there for over an hour before I was discovered. I don't know if I have ever felt so relaxed. Of course, once the kids found out my little secret, I didn't get a smell in.

This was the view from the hammock as I lay looking over my feet. But then I looked up and about 2 feet above my head was a black and white spider the size of my hand. Unfortunately, I wasn't about to hang around for a photo shoot with the little fellow.

Not a lot to report, quite honestly. The pictures speak for themselves. We have spent hours each day being beach bums. Perhaps that's why I am loving this holiday so much.
