Earthy things that become pocket treasures and things that end up in a small hand crafted wooden bowl at the cottage. There were also things that fit perfectly into [...]

Lovin’ Driftwood Beach

We finally found Riley Moore Falls

I think sometimes my friends don't know what to do with me. I talked them into what I thought would be a sweet, gentle walk in the woods but it turned into a major hike that led down to nice waterfall on the Chague River in South Carolina. After walking along a flat woody trail [...]
