This post should be dated April 27 but could not get a good internet connection at the campground to post to our blog.

This morning we took a ride around James Island.  We are thinking about moving back to the low country in a few years.  We have been gone eight years so far and so much has changed in that time.  When it was time for lunch we drove to Folly Beach for lunch.  We walked around town some and then headed to the Folly pier for lunch at Locklears which is located at the pier.  Here are some pictures of the town and the pier and beach.

Last night we visited our good friends Marlene and Henry.  As I mentioned in my post yesterday they have a beautiful home on a deep water creek here in James Island.  Diane made a covered dish and we also brought some healthy snacks from Earth Fare.  Marlene deep fried some grouper she had recently caught and Henry made a great cheese grits casserole.  Had a great time chatting with them and catching up with each other.  Here are some pictures of their home and dock.

Been awhile since we have posted.  Also had a new learning curve with the updated blogger screens.  Well we have started our 2012 travels with a short trip to the South Carolina Low Country.  We are staying at James Island County Park on James Island ( duh ) near Charleston SC.  We traveled down here on tuesday.  Was very windy and has been windy everyday.  Yesterday I met up with a couple of friends that I use to work with and Diane met a friend that she worked with.  Whenever we come back to the Charleston area we always look up old friends and catch up with whats going on in our lives.  Tonight we are getting together with Marlene and Henry, we both worked with Marlene back in the 90s.  They have a beautiful home on a deep water creek with access to the Cooper River and out to the Atlantic Ocean.

Been having a lot of issues with getting our electronics to connect to the internet here.  No cable, and TV reception is not so good.  Can't get our Verizon "hot spot" to give us a strong signal so are using the campground public wi-fi.  Will try and get some pictures posted before we leave here, if not then when we get back home and can use our hi speed connection.

This is a short trip as noted above.  Our garden is coming in now so we cut our plans shorter this spring.  We have a beach house rented in late June on Edisto Island SC.  Having my brother and his wife with us, our childern and grandaughters also.  Looking forward to a whole week of family fun.
