Being a lady in the South has its benefits

Posted by on Thursday, May 30, 2013,
I've lived in South Carolina for 5 months now and every one is so nice and polite here. There are so many things I love about living here.

People either call me ma'am, miss or dear. When I was in California, I was always puzzled when someone calls me miss or ma'am but now I get it. Those people were probably from the South! I love it.

Dog Park in Florence, SC (David H McLeod Park) is a great place for your dogs

Posted by on Thursday, May 30, 2013,
There is a fenced dog park at David H McLeod Park located at:
620 S Santiago Dr
Florence, SC 29501

This dog park at David H Mcleod Park has a really nice tranquil pond. Just a slight hover over the water and you'll see dozens of fishes. They don't have a water fountain but my dog really likes to drink out of the pond water. He's been there 3 times now and hasn't had a stomachache from it. (see pictures below)

Visitors aren't allowed to fish here anymore so that's great news for the dogs. Another ...

Happy Meal from McDonald's does make me happy

Posted by on Wednesday, May 29, 2013, In : Food 
I'm 29 years old and I still order a happy meal from McDonald's for myself when I need a big snack. I still remember how happy I would be when my parents got us happy meals. There's something about everything placed in a nice neat boxes that makes me so excited. It brings nostalgia value and I recommend any adult to stop by the drive thru and order one for a little bit of happiness.

I bought this during our road trip from SC to Virginia.

Spring in South Carolina means the garden is ready

Posted by on Wednesday, May 29, 2013,
Spring in South Carolina is so pretty. Everything is so green and the weather is nice. We have a small garden in our backyard with green (spring onions) and turnip. Our green onions are so big and ready to eat. Having a garden is so rewarding!

My favorite restaurant in Virginia Beach is Rudee's on the Inlet Restaurant (right next to the water)

My husband grew up in Virginia Beach, VA so he took me to Rudee's on the Inlet Restaurant for some seafood when we were in town an it is so amazing and romantic! We sat in one of their swinging cabanas and that itself was a unique experience. The service was great, even though they were so busy on a beautiful day. I ordered a berry mojito and my husband ordered a beer. For lunch, we ordered a lobster roll and a seafood platter that had scallops, shrimp, lobster and crab meat. I forgot the exa...

Pictures of Florence Veterans Park Trail (Connector to Florence Trail System)

Posted by on Wednesday, May 8, 2013,
We went to the Florence Veterans Park Trail (one of the Connectors to Florence Trail System, SC) today and brought our dog along for a nice nature walk. We really enjoyed the memorial park and the trails right by it. It is right by the Civic Center.

It was a beautiful May day. Here are some pictures that we took today at the Florence Veterans Park and the trail. 
We're so proud that the City of Florence did this because my husband is a military veteran.

Red Bowl is my favorite place for sushi in Florence, SC

Posted by on Sunday, May 5, 2013, In : Food 
Finally! I found my place for sushi in Florence, SC. Red Bowl sounds like it would be a fast food joint but it's not. It's a nice sit down with a full bar. They have specials for lunch and special combo specials for dinner as well. I've been here 3 times and for all 3 times, I opted in to get sushi and they never disappoint. They're all good so try them all! It's fresh with great ingredients. I also like that they don't overdo on their rice in the sushi portion. It's perfect. They also have s...

Palmetto Subs on West Evans St pleases the buds

Posted by Master Pet on Sunday, May 5, 2013, In : Food 
We went to Palmetto Subs for the first time over the weekend and we were so happy to find a great sandwich place in Florence, SC. My husband and I ordered the large #19 (their special sub) and split it. It was delicious. They know how to thinly slice their meat, veggies and provide great service. We will be back again. I want to try their tuna sandwich. (The size below is only half of the full large sandwich we bought. They kindly put it in two different plates.)
