All year, Tim and I look forward to our family vacation at Litchfield Beach. With two grown boys relishing busy lives of their own, it’s the only time we can count on everyone being together. Though books, puzzles, games, and cuddles with the little ones didn’t leave much time for the camera, here’s a quick look at some of last week’s fun.
6 am: Catching the sunrise along with scores of other photographers.
10 am: Kicking up our heels in the pool.
1 pm: Waiting out the heat of the day with Kindles for the big ones and naps for the little ones.
4 pm: Engineers at work.
6 pm: Beaufort Stew! Recipe for 8: 4 lemons, halved; 1/2 cup Old Bay seasoning; 5 pounds small red potatoes, halved; 3 pounds smoked sausage, cut into 2-inch pieces; 8 ears corn, halved; 5 pounds fresh shrimp. Add to pot in order listed, boil potatoes with seasonings for 10 minutes, and then add following ingredients at 2 to 3 minute intervals.
Come and get it!
8 pm: Last beach walk of the day, watching vacationers trying to save their sandcastles from high tide. Never works, but worth the fun!
Thanks to Dan and Cori…
and Danielle and Andrew…for spending their week with the old folks!
