This year's selection of vaca photos are mostly blunders, funnies, and outtakes. For more serious posts, see this post on the 1500 year old Angel Oak, or this one with a few photos of the "low country" landscape and a story of Spanish moss, or this one with some pretty scenes from the island.
Above and below, some sights along the road. See the mailbox above?
Only in the past few years have I seen flocks of pelicans flying in formation over the ocean. It is an awesome sight. We also enjoyed watching them feed. Here you see the pelican flying above, then gliding and eyeing a fish below, then a quick downward dive, then a little snack while resting on the water, finally back up he goes until he eyes another one.
Below: woodpecker holes surrounding the circumference of each trunk and branch of the tree. Above: This photo was taken accidentally. I was getting the self-timer ready for a family photo, and I guess the fam would rather have been making their way to the beach. Believe it or not, the very next photo was Christmas card worthy - winning "cheeeeeese" smiles.
Below: a 10 pound coconut cake. To die for. We had cake for dessert after every meal for almost a week.
You'd never imagine that someone camera shy would choose photos of herself in a bathing suit to post - especially after having a steady stream of coconut cake all week. We played for hours trying to jump on this hyperinflated raft - doing cannonballs onto it, jumping in standing position on it...this is me doing a sloppy "flying squirrel". You should have seen the air that some others in my party got!
