The last day of 2018 and our last full day here on island started with a spectacular sunrise.
After a lazy morning of coffee and french toast sticks, we meandered over to Ford’s beach for one last walk about. This beach is a prime shelling spot, but today the ocean wasn’t offering much. We did get two new to us shells though, so I shouldn’t get greedy. We walked to the north of the boat ramp, further than we have walked here before.
It was getting close to lunch, so off to Max’s for one last lunch out on the island. I had grilled wahoo, while Mike enjoyed the conch salad. Finally we learned to carry bug spray with us and spray up before sitting at Max’s. The no seeums can be brutal here.
On our return home, we stopped at this little roadside house. Would love to know the story behind it.
Once at the house we began the ritual of packing up, consolidating the collected shells and cleaning up. Ok I did sneak in a nap, while Mike did most of the work. I did snap a picture of our lovely beach. There were pig prints in the sand today, hmmmm.
The homeowners came over before we went out for our sunset viewing. They had just returned to the island and it was wonderful to meet them in person.
After chatting for a while we departed to watch the final sunset of 2018 at Galloway beach. Upon entering the beach area we were both sad to see someone had taken the “happy rocks” that were there early in the week.
The sun was as beautiful as she was this morning. Thankful our last sunset of 2018 was dramatic.
Great island to say goodbye to 2018 and hello to a hopeful 2019 on.
