And Then There were Five

100_0672Second full day on Tybee Island. 6 pages so far toward my daily goal of 10. Margaret snapped this pic of me happily typing away. One of my characters whom I pictured staid and reserved and very serious, turns out to be irreverent and a little kooky. I’m glad she didn’t wait any longer to let me in on her true personality or I would have been in trouble.

Alex just arrived, making five of us here now, so we had to stop and catch up with one another and eat the chicken soup Mary Kay just whipped up for us.

100_0685 Mary Kay gave us a little tour of the island last night. Here we are wearing our Tybee Island hats, getting ready to watch the sunset from the dock behind this restaurant. Tybee has such charm. It reminds me of some places I’ve visited in the British Virgin Islands. Very unpretentious, lots of palms and live oaks, and adorable little cottages filled with personality.

We played three games of Scrabble last night, which was so much fun, but I believe we’ll be brainstorming tonight instead of playing games. We all have plenty yet to accomplish. And it’s rainy and gray today, so I’m not tempted to go out on the beach, which is a good thing. More later. . .100_0693
