On January 1, Paul and I moved into a lovely new condo rental at Surfside Beach and settled in for a great three months at the beach. We enjoyed our return to the local shelling club, including a couple of shelling trips with them. On our Morris Island trip, Paul was the envy of all, finding a LARGE Megalodon shark’s tooth.

Paul and I also spent a few days in the Banff/Lake Louise area. It was my first time in the Rockies and we had a great time. We hope to go back some day when we have more time to explore.
July and August found us close to home this year. We spent time relaxing on our deck and doing some beachcombing down shore at our favorite beach.
In late August, our friend Giselle visited from Ottawa.It was nice to have time to catch up on news and share beach walks with her. Paul and I had some really great beach finds, including some rare grey sea glass and two glass bottle stoppers.
On our return trip to New Brunswick, Paul and I travelled through Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. It was a lovely drive with the fall colours just starting to show.
After our local Remembrance Day service, Paul and I were on the road again heading for Surfside Beach, South Carolina.
This will be our fourth winter being snowbirds and our second Christmas at the beach.Our first couple of weeks in Surfside Beach were busy.We met up with a couple of our friends from Newfoundland whom are also wintering in the area. We attended a couple of Christmas concerts, enjoyed Nights of a Thousand Candles at Brookgreen Gardens, a few golf games for Paul, beach walks and of course, shopping. We will be blogging our adventures again this year.
