Family Reunion



This year's family reunion was a reprise of the past two years for me. Although I have a very small, and scattered, family, I have adoped my husband's family! Every year we go to Garden City, South Carolina (just south of Myrtle Beach) for a family reunion. We stay about 6 days in a couple of houses owned by a very generous cousin. They are right on the beach. This year, one magical night I looked out at a full moon over the ocean, right outside my bedroom window. The whole vista was carpeted in silver. It's a view and experience I'll never forget. For a moment I envied those sailors who see such a vision very often. And to sleep with the sound of surf! How relaxing. If I had my life to live over again, I'd head to the beach!
