I felt like I've been in the Twilight Zone for the past week!
Being in a small town really makes you notice people, places and things. I think the whole town shuts down between 12:00 and 1:00 during the week. It's very slow paced.
It's a very beautiful town with lots of plantation style homes, real plantations, beautiful moss-covered oak trees, and very nice people. I can see why my brother chose to live there. At one point I saw six cars at a red light in the downtown area. That, I think, was during the noon hour, a very busy time!
Everything about the trip was wonderful. We celebrated a couple of birthdays. I was able to hold and feed my little great nephew. He's so beautiful. We ate tons of seafood! It rained several times while I was there and the humidity was awful. My hair was curly and I gave up trying to get it straight. Something I'll have to get used to! But I think that's a very small price to pay!
I think I was called "Miss Vicky" about 4,217 times! If I called somewhere to get information about something, giving my full name wasn't as effective as saying my full name followed by my brother's name and that I was his sister! LOL. It's who you know, not what you know!
It really is such a charming area. I didn't want to leave!!
But poor Penny ...... I pick her up today. To add insult to injury, she'll get a bath before she comes home! I'm hoping that she'll be so glad to see me that it won't matter all she's had to endure for the past week!
