Adventures through North Carolina

My adventures through South Carolina were extraordinary as I stepped onto the glistening sand and felt the waves ripple and tickle my feet with their salty licks.

This was my sight as I rounded the corner from a lovely dinner at Poogan’s Porch on Queen street. At Poogan’s Porch, I had a mule and a duck that sure had a kick to it! Definitely not a drink for the faint of heart. The duck was exceptional! I feel like I should insert a duck joke here but I feel like having a duck and a mule in the same meal is enough of a joke.

The beauty of the sun closing lit up the waves as the crash against the dock. It was magnificent! The park nearby was crowded with a wedding party. The air was thick with the smell of blossoming dogwoods, Spanish moss with a spritz of salty sea water.

The Spanish moss was such a sight, like hair. I decided it might make a nice mustache. I saw this at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens.

We saw an amazing church that looked so stately in the night sky.

These are little slices of my adventures in South Carolina. I would definitely recommend going to Poogan’s Porch and Magnolia Plantation, you might even see an alligator in the pond at Magnolia Plantation!

 

Detaching- Morning Detox

The air blew across my face with a faint whisper of greeting. The sun silhouetted the buildings making them appear taller. This morning was a wonderful morning for a walk. As I walked the streets of my childhood I hear the lonesome call of a grain train rumbling down the line. This morning I was completely free of electronics. This is completely freeing. I greeted the morning with clarity and a fresh mind not diluted by the media already.

This is going to be a productive morning. My sewing machine is sitting awkwardly on my dining room table with a kind of nuanced symmetry. It needs fabric… I’m planning on making napkins for my table. I like to buy products off of Etsy, because I like helping artists, so I started there.
