2nd half

Sunday morning we awoke to the sounds of our neighbor's kids and reminded ourselves how lucky we are not to have children yet! After another breakfast of yummy banana muffins we went to the state park. The scenery was gorgeous and we took a nice long walk on the beach. Despite my sunburned skin we spread out the towels and soaked in the sun. After a very short time on the beach we decided to pack it in...I was seriously afraid of torturing my skin too far. Perhaps it would never heal or I would turn to leather! It was a little after noon and we opened up the cooler for lunch. Homemade hummus and veggies. "Egg Salad" sandwiches. Bean salad. Yum-my! If I didn't know better, I would be pretty convinced by the egg salad. Tofu can really take on so many flavors and even textures. It is quite an amazing food. The hummus was also so delicious. I mean, I wouldn't say it had magical qualities that lifted it up amongst every other hummus in the world...but it was my hummus, homemade, by me. And that made it amazing!

Sunday afternoon it stormed and stormed and we headed to the hotel room to veg out in front of the tv. We watched some silly movie about people who pretend to be a family to sell things. The Joneses I think it was called and it was not good. The weather cleared up in time for dinner and we headed to a seafood buffet. This was the dinner Mr. Kummerow got to choose but it worked well for both of us. He chose Original Benjamin's on restaurant row near North Myrtle Beach. He got the whole buffet and I got the salad bar. Our waitress was so kind and pretty much told me that I could eat anything out there that I could have as a vegan, since even the salad bar had meat and cheese on it. So I took the liberty and enjoyed as many veggies I could find that were not soaked in butter. All for $4.95! Pretty impressive! That evening we snacked on our peanut butter rice krispie treats for dessert with some more wine of course! (this was the second time I've made those treats and I have to say they turned out much better this time...although I have no idea what I did to make them turn out so good...hmmm)

Monday morning was still cloudy and gloomy and we decided to eat breakfast and head home. So our breakfast was at Dino's (remember, recommended by Kelly) and I did order the oatmeal off the menu. But don't be sad for me...I really love oatmeal, and this one came with raisins and pecans. Alex had the waffles (not a vegan breakfast) and loved them. On our way home. We never stopped for lunch and had our tofu lettuce wraps for dinner.
