The Sands Beach at Port Royal,SC

The day after Thanksgiving, I met up with the BabyGirl for a day out and about.  We had lunch at a Thai restaurant in Port Royal, SC.  The restaurant was in a former schoolhouse that had been moved there from another location.

The BabyGirl took this photo out the passenger window. Yes, now she's doing it, too.

It was cold inside the restaurant, but slowly it began to warm up.  I think that the owners, who were also the cook and bottle-washer, had turned on the heat just for us, the first diners of the day.  We placed our order and then we heard the cook/owner, a charming woman from – guess where? – Thailand, began to chop away in the kitchen.  The food was amazingly fresh and delicious.  I had been there once before with Sugar, and today found that the food was consistently mouth-watering.  I’m getting hungry just writing this post.

After the meal, we drove further down the main street which ends at a factory-like building.  We headed along another street and saw a sign for “The Sands” Beach.  I had no idea that there was a beach there.  I knew that Port Royal was situated on a waterway, but many times the waterways are not accessible because of marsh or man-made developments.  A little scenic treat was in store. I found this link to a boardwalk, which we will save for another day.

At the end of the lane to the beach, these shore birds were hanging out.

After we got out of the car, I look this photo looking back to the right.

And at our feet…

Oysters!

So take a stroll down to the Sands Beach!  Or launch your boat!  Or just cop a squat for an afternoon.

      I didn’t mention that the day after Thanksgiving is called “Black Friday”. My day was so much better.
      Thanks for the compliment!
