Chicken at Zaxby's

We tried out a little place  called "Zaxby's" tonight.  Never been there before and it was yummy!

The service was great and the food tasted great as well!


















My plate had 3 nice size peices of chicken with fries on the side and a slice of Texas toast. I also had a side order of the fried mushrooms, which were delicious, as was the dipping sauce--had just the right amount of 'bite' to it----some good horseradish there! (below-my mushrooms)














The decor was neat, lots of memorabillia type items hung on the walls.



















I am all about great customer service-and we got it here. Great job Zaxby's!

In other Lowcountry news, check out the quickly vanishing crepe myrtle blossoms!













Soon they will be gone, gone, gone as Fall approches. Well, TECHNICALLY I know the calendar says "Fall" but of course it doesnt even begin to feel like Fall here on the coast till December or so.  We dont even rake the leaves until February here----when the last of them finally finish falling--and those trees are few and far between anyway--pretty much everything else stays green year round, which is just one more reason I delight in coastal living!

Church for sale



Y'all ever watch those shows on HGTV where people buy unconventional properties and transform them into wonderful homes?--such as old factories, firehouses, lighthouses, churches, etc.
Spotted this neat old one in Mount Pleasant. looks like it was once a small country church. Wouldn't this make a great one of those fixer-uppers?




I do apologize for the blurry photos-twilight had fallen and this was the best I could do.

The temps have now dropped down to the 80s here, we are all enjoying the nice cooler weather. It is perfect beach weather! Not so humid either.

Flames in the Sky

At times tonights autumn sunset didn't even look like the sky---it looked like flames!

What a stunner of a sunset painted on this evening's sky!
