The Best Beaches

I havent really ventured far from my home on the southeastern coast of the United States, but when I do it is usually to vacation at one of South Carolina's beautiful beaches. I love the beach and I am sure many poeple do. When I was young I remember my mom used to take us to the beach every year. I have two older sisters and they both are fair skinned and always burned easily. But I must have been the milkman's kid because I was the one who always got the good tan and was blessed with the blonde hair. I think one of my best memories of the beach is with my late husband. We never went on a honeymoon and every year when we would go to the beach we always took our two children with us. We never really went anywhere alone. In the summer of 2003, I allowed my sister to take my kids to Florida with her. They were 13 and 7 at the time and I had no clue what to do while they were gone. So my husband suggested we go to the beach and it could be the honeymoon we never had. We went to Beaufort, SC and enjoyed the beach at Hunting Island. this is really a very nice beach and place to go for a picnic for the day. We had a great time just being alone with each other and I am very thankful we took that trip. Six months later, my husband died, but that is one of my favorite memories-our late honeymoon. I guess God knew what he was doing.
