Estelle is a wonderful lady who has been connected to our family for 76 years. When Durelle's mother and father were bringing her home from the hospital in 1938, Estelle was the teenager next door who actually carried Durelle into the house. She was a faithful babysitter and friend as Durelle grew up. Being a renowned cook, Estelle made our wedding cake, AND fifty years later she made a replica for our 50th anniversary.
This spring (?) she and her two daughters, Peggy and Karen, rented a seaside place in Pawleys Island. Today we drove up for a visit and lunch. The house is a wonderful, sprawling place with a nice boardwalk out to the ocean. It could stand a little facelift, but it is on the market for a million bucks. Location, location, location. It would be easy to spend the winter months there.
This view is looking northward up the beach. As Durelle and Estelle walked out the boardwalk to the landing at the beach, I snapped a number of candids. I will show you three.
By the way, Estelle is 92! For lunch we made a return visit to Bistro 217, and we were not disappointed.
So here we revert to a food blog.
This is Durelle's club sandwich.
This is Estelle's Philly Cheesesteak.
This is Karen's BLT.
Peggy had an extensive salad topped with a pecan-encrusted piece of trigger fish.
Finally there is my Pad Thai with lots of cilantro.
We went back to the beach house for hot fudge sundaes with homemade fudge.
Does it get any better than this?
