Although today was warmer here on the Plateau of Tennessee — we actually got above freezing for a couple of hours — I still felt led to celebrate Skywatch Friday with memories of warmer weather.
The picture above was taken in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, in May, 2006. We were on the beach in front of Cherry Grove Manor when the clear, deep blue skies behind the manor and palmetto trees got my attention. We’re accustomed to beautiful skies when we go to the beach, but I don’t think we’ve ever seen a prettier sky.
The Cherry Grove Manor was probably our favorite place to stay at the beach, primarily because it was small and comfortable. Unfortunately it is no longer there. It was torn down in early 2007 to make room for a high rise condo. When we were at the beach last year we went past the site and there was only a small beach access walkway and one tree left from the manor. It was rather sad. The condo was under construction in May, 2008, but I don’t know if it has been finished or not. Perhaps we’ll find out when we go to the beach this year.
