Road Trip

I have only lived in South Carolina for 5 years. I spent the previous bazillion in various parts of New York. My close friend just came down for a week and we went on a girls road trip. Thinking Thelma and Louise? Nah, more like Lucy and Ethel. Anyway, our destination was Charleston and the beach. We left here on a glorious day weatherwise and drove straight into a watery onslaught! We couldn't even go look at the beach due to high tides and flooding. It stopped 3 days later when we were about 30 minutes from my house. Ugh, were we soggy! We wound up shopping till we dropped at an outlet center that had our personal favorite, Eddie Bauer. Their clothes just fit me well, last forever and are always in my favorite shades. We shopped so much that she had to borrow a medium sized suitcase to take her loot home. But great fun nonetheless. We also ate like pigs...some great meals and great snacking as well. That's what you do when you're away from home, right? She bought some Christmas presents but she stopped when I told her to shop on ETSY.
And now reality but with great memories!
