Beach Dreaming!

Scenes from our Vacation this Year - Portugal
I have been planning a 2013 family reunion to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.   The area is so popular that it is wise to plan ahead - particularly for the summer months.  I just found a wonderful property in Palmetto Dunes Plantation (much of the island is divided into "plantations" - not in the traditional sense but as a planned community).  The house accommodates up to 17 people with a swimming pool and nice outdoor space and is in our price range - not cheap but reasonable - unlike most Hilton Head properties.  It is not right on the beach but only a short bike ride or walk away.  It is now booked and we are set to go - I'm already planning family excursions and even meals!

Here's a photo of the setting for last year's family gathering - Lake City, Minnesota (highly recommend this area - it has a lot more going for it than you would think).

We love to travel to beach destinations although we are not "beach people".  I am too old/fair to be out in the sun all day and we are too active to sit around on the sand.  We do LOVE the water and water scenery, however.

I got further in this "beachy" mood when the March issue of Coastal Living arrived Link to Magazine website.  This is a very fresh looking magazine that inspires me in my love of blue and white since those are still the dominant themes in waterfront decor (see my blog from yesterday on decorating with blue and white).

In my own Wydeven Design collection, I have had a lot of blue and white refurbished furniture over the years and have several available in this lovely, crisp look - some with pops of other colors.
