A White Winter – Sand is better than Snow

Being retired, I decided to leave the snow behind and took a road trip to South Carolina. On the way there, I visited with family and did some sight seeing.

Warning – this is a photo intensive post!

Madison, WI – a visit with my son, his girlfriend and their cats.

Cappuccino and Tater Tot

Watertown, WI – on the way to my next stop, I visited the town I grew up in. I have not been back there in about 40 years.

Mequon, WI – a visit with my mother-in-law.

Creation Museum – very informative descriptions of how science supports creation.

Ark Encounter – truly amazing!

Hilton Head Island, SC – a bike friendly place to visit.

Marriott SurfWatch – my home away from home for four weeks.

Tidal Creek – between the villas and the beach.

Savannah, GA – and a visit by a couple friends. We did a self guided walking of the Savannah Squares. Savannah has 22 historic squares. Each square has its own name and look, with most of them having a unique statue, sculpture, or structure as the focal point in the center.

HarbourTown, Stoney Baynard Ruins.

South Beach

Coligny Beach

Pinckney Island Refuge

Charleston, SC

Bluffton, SC

Cleveland, OH – on my way back to MN, I stopped for a visit with my sister-in-law, her daughter and new grand daughter.

Wisconsin Museum of Quilts and Fiber Arts – my last stop was with my mother-in-law and a visit to the quilt museum in Cedarburg, WI. The current exhibition was about hooked rugs. They were all very beautiful. I was intrigued by the technique, but decided that I really don’t need another hobby.
