Mother's Day Celebration Dinner

One of the best things about eating out on Hilton Head Island are the many restaurants that offer outside dining.

We chose Skull Creek BoatHouse to celebrate Mother's Day.  It was a perfect evening to dine al fresco.

What entree do we recommend?  Why the Coco Seared Sea Scallops Coconut butter, pineapple salsa, yukon gold smashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables.  Then, be real bad and split a decadent, over-the-top chocolate dessert with vanilla ice cream!  Yum!   

 I didn't get much painted at the restaurant, but with the aid of my phone's camera, the bounty of food was safely stored :)


We highly recommend this dining establishment. It's one of our favorites!

  2. Thanks, Ann! It is relaxing, especially when by the water. I wanted to stay all evening and paint, but alas, the poor waiter was looking real nervous when we lingered after dessert..... I could see the loss of tip money on his face if he couldn't keep our table in rotation.

  4. Such a lovely setting, and I'm glad you were able to capture it as well. It's funny how sketching an event or place cements more memories in our brains. Just looking at past journal entries keys all my senses from that particular time - sounds and smells included!

    It's a beautiful page - love those trees!!

    1. Thanks, Elizabeth! You are so right about sketching cementing events into our minds and hearts :) I think the best is being able recall everything... I always use these points to sell journaling :)
