Don't worry, my blog is still rated PG!
We were invited on a boat trip to a private island for a birthday celebration for a friend. The birthday girl is on the right.
Front row seats for us.
It was interesting to see our place from the water, a different perspective of our little world. The house and even the big trees looked small and insignificant compared to the waters.
After a stop to jump off the boat and cool off in icy artesian waters coming up out of the salt water, we arrived at our destination, an Island owned by friends of our hosts.
The island is natural and wild, with no buildings or other people in sight, so I think you can guess why this beautiful beach has come to be called Naked Beach.
We went for a beach walk, picking up shells, watching whole herds of sand crabs scuttling off into the sea grass, and enjoying the ever-changing sculptures created by Nature.
Some days you can swim with the dolphins here but the tide wasn't right this day.
On the other side of the island is Whale Branch where whales are often seen.
After a long swim we shared boiled peanuts and toasted the birthday girl with champagne.
Then, we had to either leave by noon or wait until 7 pm for the next high tide. Can you guess why?
In order to navigate sandbars and such and be able dock at Captain Billy's home.
The trip back was just as beautiful as the trip out. What a way to celebrate a birthday!
