Prudence Island, a timeless vacation!

Well I'm back, this is the first time I've had time to post since my vacation....Ok that's not entirely true, this is the first time I've had the energy to blog. It is NOT easy to get back in the swing of things when you've been on an island where time seems to flow differently! We would get up when we wanted and go to bed later than normal, because the days seemed to fly and before we knew it, it was after 8 at night. Most nights we didn't eat before 9, and even the kids seemed to realize that this was a different world. During the day there was swimming and sand art, sailing lessons and catching of crabs and mussels. There is nothing better than gathering mussels during low tide then cooking them up right after, so fresh and delicious! The crabs were not the eating type, but they were the gathering type, we went after them to see how many we could catch before letting them go. I even caught some, just to prove to my nephew that I was NOT too girly to catch them! In hindsight I wish I had just let him laugh at me, a crab pinched me and it hurt hee! On cloudy days (we had a few but no rain thank goodness) we hiked around the island and took pictures of the "haunted house", a very old abandoned house. I don't know if any of you truly believe in hauntings, I do, and I can honestly say there was nothing hostile around that house, but the kids got a kick out of knocking on the door to wake up the "ghosts". Those cloudy days were nice, the deer came out then, so we got to see many of them, something Princess couldn't get enough of. The sunsets were breathtaking, and the kids even went evening swimming in their clothes, something every kid should do at least once! At night you could sit on the porch and watch the bats go after the bugs. I cheered them on as they decreased the mosquito population! It was a vacation I truly did not want to end, but as with all good times, it finally came to an end, and we were both sad to leave. Oh well, it just makes the memories sweeter and the anticipation of another time at Prudence Island something to treasure. Now...Back to the real world!!!
