A Walk on the Beach

Saturday February 18

No major plans for this day so we decided to drive out to the beach and walk around.  This day we decided to go to the Isle of Palm.  Though after reading all the do's and don'ts, we didn't know!

 Parked the car and did some:
Shell seeking
 Saw some:

Sand Castles

Dog walkers

Kites flying

Tide at it's lowest

Sun worshipers?
Beach bums?
After a nice trek on the beach, we walked back to the car by way of the road and had fun looking at all the beach houses.  Then we drove down to the harbor and decided to have lunch at a restaurant on the water.  On the way, Al found a fisherman and had a chat.
I had the shrimp and grits.  Had never had it and it was delicious.
Al had the scallops.  A big helping of them!

We wanted to take a bike ride before the rain that was predicted came in, so got back to the iHome and rolled out the bikes.  There is a really nice fishing pier that we have stopped at before.  A woman and her son have been there both times fishing and crabbing.  They had one huge blue crab.  I had never seen a real live one.  The blue is amazing.

These pictures were taken on another ride, but the people, bikes, and trail were the same!

The blue crab.  Sorry the pic is not great.  It was in a cooler and I was using my phone.
