Edisto Get-a-Way

Gee!! The summer is so busy, I'm not doing a very good blogging job. Time to catch up!
Last Wednesday Philip and I had a great boat trip to Edisto Island to visit our long-time friends the Grays. Their family was vacationing there for the week. I had not seen them in quite a while and it was a wonderful reunion. The boat trip was great with smooth waters, no storms! We pulled out the charts and followed the intracoastal waterway from Beaufort to Edisto.
I love the beach and had been wishing for a day at the beach. Lisa and I got to catch up on all our family news while enjoying the sand and surf!! She was able to give me an update on many old acquaintances from Columbia as well. It was great to have this day of relaxation!
Philip took the fixin's for Frogmore Stew (shrimp, sausage, and corn) and made everyone a wonderful lowcountry lunch.
Late in the afternoon we headed back home. We saw a few dark clouds, but no lightening!! Yeah!!
Home, sweet home!! What a great day!!
We had a great visit with Philip, Jr. earlier in the month for his birthday!!
Got a quick pic of him!!
Also Ashley and David were here last weekend. They have found out that the twins are going to be a girl and a boy!! We are so excited at this news!!
I have decided that the Breeze Baby Blanket will be for Baby Girl and I'll make a simpler (more masculine) blanket for Baby Boy. Ashley opted for Baby Boy's blanket to be blue. We found some beautiful Rowan Handknit Cotton at Barbara Sue Brodie's in Aiken, SC. I would call this a dusty blue - shade 239.
More to come on the pattern and the cast-on!!!
