3:00 am is a pretty early start to a Sunday. And that is how our Mother’s Day celebration started. Many hands worked together to pack a delicious lunch for the beach, and load various necessities into the van. What’s a day at the beach without sunscreen, flip-flops, sweet tea, and football?
We drove 4 1/2 hours, to Hilton Head Island in South Carolina, and arrived mid-morning at Folly Field Park.
Swim-suits, sunglasses, sunscreen… and the surfboard.
The walk down to the beach consists of long boardwalks, heading through a shady part of woods, and past a marsh area.
There were jellyfish everywhere up and down the beach. These were very interesting looking, not at all like the grayish pinkish one with tentacles that stung me. They were more like big blobs of jelly … and a girl nearby was flipping them over with her foot.

Late afternoon we grabbed our clothes and changed at the park. Off to a nice seafood restaurant nearby where we had made reservations for a special Mother’s Day dinner with the family.
Then off we went to a really pretty lookout to watch the sun set over the boat docks.
Mother’s Day was a pretty incredible adventure. It was a crazy day mixed with heat, wind, sunshine & water. We laughed, took pictures, picnicked on the beach, saw new sights and examined God’s beautiful creation. We celebrated our mom – our special virtuous mom who so beautifully exemplifies Christ in her daily life as she serves her husband and children and the people around her. We made memories together. We spent time together as a family.
