Camden, Myrtle Beach and Pawley"s Island

I am still asking myself how I managed to do so much in such a short period of time?Well that was my visit to see Rosa. Rosa apartment is just off her mom's, Miss Mary, house. They share a huge yard which Miss Mary has planted a very special type of pea which her family just loves eating. It was yummy too. So the first Saturday I was there I was able to participate in the shelling of peas and watched as they preserved them. It was so satisfying to see them make such good use of their land and reap such a boutiful harvest of peas, tomatoes and cucumbers. After the shelling Rosa and I went to Mrytle Beach to meet up with her daughter, Lee, and her family. Later we went down to Pawley's Island and scouted the sea oats and fishermen catching a some fish in the marshes. Then on my way back from NC, we went hunting for old quaint buildings. One little shed which I found adorable is in the collage. Also adorable is Aunt Nita, short for Juanita, Rosa 94 year old aunt who happens to be sharp as a whistle and a lot of fun. She works on keeping her health and enjoying life with a good sense of humor. God bless them all!!

Maybe once we move to Rochester we can occasionally meet you in NC. It isn't that much further down, and I plan to get as far as Virginia to visit Carmen next year.
