Our first full day back from vacation. Wendy was at work, while I (having taken an additional day of vacation) did laundry and ran errands (our ADSL modem was zapped during our vacation, so I got that replaced), got the house back into shape, and went to Cincinnati State Technical and Community College for pre-admission testing for the Culinary program.

Busy day for both of us, and with almost no food in the house (and certainly no desire to cook, even if there was food!), we simply ordered from LaRosa’s. I got my usual — a hoagie & a salad. Wendy tried one of their new Ciabattas and presumably it was good; I didn’t get a taste.

After 10 hours of driving back, fighting the rain, unpacking, and beginning laundry, we were too tired for any real dinner tonight.

Wendy had a granola bar and a banana, and I don’t remember what I ate!

Today, we dined from Melvin’s Barbeque for lunch. Ted & I drove out to get some of their famous "1933 Secret Recipe" barbeque sauce, which is mustard based and wonderful, on pulled pork sandwiches. With an assortment of side-items, including their amazing onion rings, we drove back to Folly Beach, tempted the whole way by the amazing smells!

The folks at the beach house were grateful that they didn’t have to get gussied up for a good lunch… And a good lunch it was!

For dinner, we ate at the oddly-named River Cafe’ at the Sandbar, one of Wendy’s mother’s favorite places.

It was darned good — I had Jalapeno Roasted Corn Soup, Sauteed Scallops with penne pasta, and we split a piece of Key Lime Pie for dessert.

Tonight’s dinner was the swankiest place of anywhere we dined during vacation. We ate at Cafe’ Suzanne on Folly Beach.

I enjoyed an excellent Shrimp Bisque before Crab Cakes with Garlic Mashed Potatos and grilled Spinach, Beans, and Peppers.

It was an awesome meal, and yet another must-visit place on vacation!

After a hard day ( :smile: ) on the beach, we decided to stay in the lowcountry spirit and dine at a true shack — this time, we decided on the Anchor Line.

I had more She-Crab Soup and fried shrimp, french fries, cole slaw, and hush puppies along with sweet tea.

It’s a great place to eat!

Tonight, we ate at the on the Edwin S. Taylor Fishing Pier on Folly Beach. I enjoyed a rather simple meal of Fried Shrimp, and Wendy & I split some nice Crab Rangoons, made with loads of fresh crab.

We enjoyed a nice walk out to the end of the pier before dinner.
