The “ladies’ program”

The organizers of Paul’s conference always arrange for a spouse’s program to entertain the partners of the participants during the day. Seeing as how all the spouses were in fact women, I took to calling it the “ladies’ program”; sounds fancy, doesn’t it?

Although I do like venturing off on my own to explore, I decided to join the program for two outtings: first to Hilton Head, South Carolina and the second to Tybee Island just outside of Savannah.

I had a lot of fun with the other wives and was thrilled to meet up with one who has a major interest in photography like me. She and I usually spent our time exploring the beaches and pointing out photo ops to each other!

The first few photos below are at Hilton Head:

The rest of the photos are at Tybee Island. I was excited to tour my first lighthouse ever!

I had to snap a shot of this squash for the kids. Doesn’t it look like a goose?

I was fasincated with the curving lines inside the lighthouse as we climbed our way to the top.

And then to the beach at Tybee we went, where I experienced another first: seeing a pier for the first time in person.

In the photos below, there is a group of kids in uniform playing in the water. I could have watched them all day: their joy was palpable.

It was strange visiting these places without Paul and the kids. I kept imagining Claire and Ren running on the beach or down the pier. I was almost going to Photoshop them into these photos but then I thought it might look ghostly or something. Maybe I’ll have to suggest a family vacation here one year.

  • I love that you found yourself a photography friend in your 'ladies club', that is so awesome!

    And your pictures are outstanding. I want to go to Savannah so badly now, after reading your last few posts! Might I add, you are a fabulous history buff! I am not one bit interested in history, sometimes I wish I was!
