I regret not being able to go to the cute shops along Highway 17. We did hit a few thrift stores, and that was fun. It's hard to do much with six small children except feed them, dress and undress them, change diapers, and put them to bed. Oh, and try to keep them happy during the day with popsicles and a $20 swimming pool bought out of desperation mid-week.
I did get to spend some time taking photos with a 1970's Polaroid camera and manipulating them. I'll try to post some on here soon. I also found inspiration in a book called Altered Books. I hope to try this soon. Maybe I'll make one to commemorate this beach trip.
So, even though it wasn't very restful, I'm glad I went. Would I do it again? Yes, but not anytime soon!
