Remember the other week when I thought
I might have the most pictures ever? Well this week shoots that week out of the
water! I really really tried to only pick a few. And when you think of
percentages, I did only pick a few. Ahem. Fortunately for you, Dr. M is posting
a lot of our pictures on his blog this week. You really should check them out.
He has two posts up already, here
Go back all this week to see new entries.
In honor of Memorial Day, Dr. M also put up a post about his ancestor who fought in the Civil War - you should check it out here
Oh, & there’s no one State
of the Bug this week – I think there’s a Bug picture practically every day!
The morning was rainy and cool (hurricane
season already!). But later in the morning we ventured out to make sure the
ocean was actually there.
We found a different beach that
seemed a little wilder & less populated.
Of course there were lots of
pictures of birds (remember to check out Dr. M’s blog for more of them).
And, as Saturday’s sign (from
last week’s post) promised, there really was an alligator in our lagoon!
On Monday we headed to Savannah
for a bit. I’m not posting any of those pictures (we didn’t actually spend much
time in town). I’m sure Dr. M will do a post on our Savannah pictures later
this week. First, we stopped at Fort Jackson for a bit.
Here I am waiting for Dr. M outside
the fort – doing my traditional thing of trying to avoid the cannon
Then we went to Bonaventure
Cemetery. It looked appropriately southern cemetery-ish.
This bench was at Johnny Mercer’s
Tuesday we spent more time at
When I turned over this empty crab shell all these little crabs came
scurrying out! Gave me a bit of a start - &
then I went “Aww – cute little crabs…”
That evening we did some more
beach walking (& sitting). Goodbye beach!
On our way tout of town, we stopped by
the Pinkney Nature Preserve. Most of our pictures from that visit are already
on Dr. M’s blog.
We decided to drive to Port
Royal and check out a pier that we remembered visiting before. They have a nice
And of course, birds.
Our last glimpse of Spanish Moss
before heading out of town.
When I’m at Daddy & Amy’s house Dr. M & I very often
eat weird things for breakfast. I had pulled pork BBQ, baked beans, and lemon
pound cake. Dr. M had lemon pound cake, sweet potato pie and nabs (crackers).
I took pictures of the outside flowers. Their yard is always
Garlic is so funky looking to me.
I finally finished my crochet cap! Now I’m working on a red
Dr. M took more pictures of
Daddy & Amy’s flowers.
Then he took pictures of his
home county when he went to visit his dad. Of course he saw some sheep.
I watched my nephew help my dad
plant some flowers. He’s leaving for basic training in July – which makes me
sad and proud.
I spent some time with my brother this morning. He got my sister
in law this tiny Yorkie puppy for her birthday in April. She is so cute! (OK J,
you’re cute too, but I’m sorry, the puppy wins).
Dr. M drove me by so I could see the sheep in person :)
Then we headed over to see Dr. M’s dad again. While I was
working on this
bragging about my dad, my 80 year old father in law was doing this:
Dr. M & his dad.
I wonder if the Abernethy’s would let me live here? It seems
I love the roadside thistle.
I asked for it & Amy made me a strawberry rhubarb pie.
Yum! Thanks Amy – it was fabulous!
Whew – are you as glad as I am that this post is finished?

Most of our photos are taken with a 12
megapixel Nikon D5000 DSLR, using a 55-200mm zoom lens. This is the camera that
Dr. M takes with him most days. He also takes pictures with our old reliable 7
megapixel Canon Powershot A710. The Bug uses our new Nikon Coolpix S6200 most of the
time. If you’re interested in which camera was used for a particular shot, just
