South Carolina

Had a great vacation! Everyone needs to get away even if it is just for a few days. My week off I spent in South Carolina, it was so much fun. My husband and I went to Santee Cooper, and went fishing for cat fish. We went out with a guide on Lake Marion, his name was Gus, he certainly knew what he was doing and he made the fishing fun.

Gus seemed to know where the catfish were, and while we were waiting for them to bite he told us about the lake, how it was made, very interesting. Gus also gave us some really good fishing tips. And when the fish started biting they didn’t stop. It was great!

Because the lake was man made and the water was put on top of trees that never got finished being cut down, the line would snag, and he showed us how to pop the pole to release it from the snag. Whenever we saw the pole bend we thought it was a fish, Gus knew if it was a snag or a fish, I still can’t figure out how he knew just by looking at the pole. He even knew if a fish hit the pole and he’d say you got a hit, within a minute the fish came back and was caught. (We let all our fish that we caught go back immediately after the catch.)

I also saw an absolutely beautiful eucalyptus tree down by the lake; of course I had
to take a picture. The May flies were out the one morning that we were there they sort of looked like dragon flies…at least someone told me they were May flies. I really don’t know.

We also went to the Crab Festival by Myrtle Beach that was fun too. They had all kinds of food and vendors selling crafts. I enjoyed looking around at the fair, and it was right by the water. The weather was perfect the whole time we were there.

Here is a new addition to my sisters OOAK fairies, each one is different and they are not made from a mold. The finished fairies will be listed on ebay. This fairy is a custom made fairy for one of her buyers.

To rest ones body renews your strength, to rest ones mind renews the creative forces that have stagnated over time. It brightens the colors that one visualizes, and allows the senses to become excited over new ideas.

Thank you for checking out my blog. The fairies are made by my sister who truly is talented.

I on the other hand have a talent for appreciating art. :)
