I’m sad to say that so far, our vacation has been a bust!
Earlier today, we were suppose to go crabbing, but it started raining, and wouldn’t stop! Our friends that we were going to go crabbing with said that it has been a strange period where it has rained often in the evenings, making the pools in the area out of whack chemically.
From our friend’s house, we drove out to the island through a repeated downpour of rain. Flash flood type of weather, not at all enjoyable. The humidity also has been very, very high!
Once we got to the hilton head house that we rented for the week (along with my family), we learned that the dog my parents recently bought jumped the fence! Since my mom in particular loves this new dog, she instantly wanted to fly back home to try and find the her. Apparently, the dog keeps coming back (the boy that’s watching the dog has kept my parents updated), but is afraid of the boy and won’t come to him when he calls for her.
So the flight leaves at 5:30am this morning for my mom (my dad decided to stay). My dad is going to drive my mom to the airport so she can be on the plane at 5:30am. The ticket will cost $400.00.
Sometimes mishaps happen! The dog that my mom has is very expensive and they were actually going to bred her to recoup some of the money spent. The dog is an almost all black german shepard and although pretty, also very timid. Unfortunately, she will only come to my mom and dad when called…
And to think, I was hoping I was going to blog about my frugal adventures crabbing. It’s easy to do and crab is delicious!
