It has been a long time since I have posted. I have been busy selling our home in Chagrin Falls, packing and organizing our big family house, arranging a rental home in Beaufort, SC, and then unpacking and setting up our temporary home while we plan and build our cottage overlooking the Broad River. We finally arrived in time to enjoy warm temperatures and plenty of sun although the Polar Vortexes definitely made their way down here as you can see …
a salt truck crossing the Broad River bridge! No traffic jams in this little town, everyone was cozy and warm at home. It was only cold for a few days.
I will try to post a bit more often now. We were out walking our dog yesterday on a beautiful afternoon. Enjoy these scenes of Beaufort...
Oysters attached to the dock posts which will be covered with high tide in a few hours.
There are many historic homes to check out in Beaufort, so fun to stroll around. The climber on the lower pink columns is Nandina, it is blooming in most yards around town, the berries are visible from fall through spring.
Low tide at the marina and Bay Street, with its grand homes, in the distance.
One of my favorite places to visit in Beaufort, Savannah and Charleston are the beautiful cemeteries covered in Live Oaks and full of beautiful old gravestones. This one
belongs to the beautiful Episcopal Parish Church of St Helena, her bells ring hourly.
We ended the afternoon by checking out the sunset at the lot we will build on. We were happy to see this….
We are now working with the architect and builder on the house plans but will try to relax and enjoy the process as getting the family house sold and organized (lots of purging and also dividing belongings into containers for storage or the rental home) was the biggest effort. It feels funny to be in a much smaller home but so much more cozy, efficient and less upkeep.
Thanks for visiting!
