Isle of Palms - 2016
Nov 24 and Nov 25
Yes, we are still here in Isle of Palms waiting to be towed to Marine Propulsions in Rockville SC, about 40 miles away--our date with TowBoatUS is Monday, November 28, and we are anxious to get our re-powering underway. Of course, after Monday it will be another 4 to 6 weeks before we can resume our trip south.
November 24 (Thanksgiving Day)

|It seems like everyday we spend some time walking on the beach |
here at Isle of Palms. A part of a tree washed up on the
beach today at low tide. Every day the beach
looks different is some way.

at the Morgan Creek Grill in the
Isle of Palms Marina.

very beautiful sunset.
We wish all our friends and family back home have a happy Thanksgiving!
After picking up our rental car for the weekend, we had pizza for lunch at Grimaldi's in Mount Pleasant, which has become one of our favorite restaurants in the area. Then, we headed north on Route 17 (about 12 miles) to the Center For Birds of Prey in Awendaw SC. We purchased tickets on line for the 2 PM tour and flight exhibition. (The center is open to the public on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 10 AM to 5 PM--flight exhibitions are at 11:30 AM and 3:00 PM.)

|This large owl was part of the flight exhibition and was landing |
on a barren tree as I captured this image. It was
amazing how quietly he flew around.

This bird was definitely built for speed!
It was a great outdoor activity and the weather cooperated--it was in the mid-70's all afternoon. The tour and flight exhibition was very educational as well as entertaining.
