Great girls get away!!
5 days, 5 women and the perfect place to get away from it all and cut loose from life's relentless demands and lately, disappointments. Our biggest concern was what and when we were going to eat and did we have enough cocktails. The spacious and well stocked kitchen was my playground from which to serve Red Velvet Cake, coffee and freshly baked honey goat cheese & fig muffins, mussels steamed in white wine and shrimp & scallops sauteed in butter, garlic and heavy cream. We were blessed with amazing weather and had all the windows open in the living area upstairs ~ we spent many nights curled up on the sofas talking, talking trash and sharing our hopes, frustrations and dreams. We slept like the dead and lived each day as if no cares existed.
The location couldn't have been better and was very conducive to morning, afternoon and moonlit walks on the beach and sidewalks. Pompano Joe's was there to offer refreshment after a long drive from Atlanta. Some sight-seeing over in Seaside provided a nice first day excursion.
We spent many an afternoon lazing around the lovely dipping pool in the private courtyard...sunning ourselves, singing at the top of our lung, dreaming of our new businesses that would revolutionize the corporate world. The downstairs room with the futon was transformed into the "spa" room as we were extremely lucky to be traveling with a masseuse. The setting couldn't have been more perfect or healing.
When you go, take your coffee and go sit on the front porch and let the morning breezes gently coax you awake and if by 10:30 you still haven't figured out what you're going to do with the day, smile and embrace doing nothing.
By the time we got back to Atlanta we were already asking "when can we go back?"
