A Cloudy Day at the Beach, Hunting Island, SC

Last week Severo and I flew East to visit my mom on Fripp Island in South Carolina.
Despite my clumsy falling-and-spraining-my-knee episode, we had a great time.
[I think I have eaten my fill of shrimp for a few months!]

Here is our visit to Hunting Island, the next Island north of Fripp (which is a gated, private resort).
Hunting Island is one of the few South Carolina State Parks with beach access and camping.
It was hard hit by Hurricane Matthew in 2016, and the park was closed for a long time, much to the consternation of all who like to visit. There are still a lot of fallen trees and riff-raff on the beach and throughout the island. Slowly, the state is getting it cleaned up, and rebuilding demolished structures.

Beach vista. The "foam" on the sand is soap suds. I don't know why.
Beach feet.

A non-fashion comfort statement!
Driving around to the lagoon, rustic road!

The lighthouse, which one can climb for a $2 admission fee. We didn't.
Unintentional selfie outtake, as one does when everyone is 60+.
The tilted horizon adds to the whole effect.

Harlequin Rainbow

Did you see it on Instagram? The $6 silk Ungaro shirt that I got last Sunday?
I wore it on Wednesday:
Ommmmmm. Taste the rainbow.
I wore it on Thursday:
Glowing in afternoon light.
I must walk around with my arms extended at all times.
It's beautifully made. French seams inside:
Perfectly aligned pocket and center front:
Covered buttons.

All I can say is Ooh La La!

Tomorrow my mission is obtaining the Hula Pie plate. (See last week's post)
Hula Pie is A Thing, BTW. A Kimo's of Lahaina Town, Maui thing.
