Tuesday 27th August
Upon awakening we watch the sun rise above the ocean, turning the colours from a misty grey to a warm, glowing pink. There are a few pelicans swooping and gliding along the shoreline, hoping to catch an unsuspecting fish.
We first try to see our good friend, but are told she will not be in the Welcome Centre of South Carolina for a couple of days.
We move on to our coffee stop to catch up with another friend, but she is not there either!!
Oh well, on to an air-conditioned mall it is, retail therapy and lunch.
After the heat of the mid-day sun had dissipated somewhat, we come back to our hotel, find a couple of sunbeds beside the pool that are in the shade, and relax . . . . . A little while later we decide to walk along the beach, kicking through the surf, watching all the other beachgoers playing, swimming, surfing and having fun.
