The Year Mom Hid The Presents

There seemed to be a lack of luster this Christmas. The boys both being teenagers, had narrowed their selections to an exact list of few but expensive items. How is a parent supposed to keep the thrill and excitement of waking early Christmas morning when their children are in that awkward and in-between stage, no longer cute toddlers anxiously waiting for jolly old St Nick. Well, with my sister’s help, we devised a plan to help put the thrill back into Christmas morning. We came up with the idea. Everything the boys expected to wake up to Christmas morning would not be there. That’s right, a bare tree. Instead I left clues, a scavenger hunt…and not an easy one I might add.

Here are the clues. Each was formatted with its own Christmas theme and font.

1.      Oh no, silly me, I forgot to put your gifts under the tree. Don’t be sad or think you were bad. Look for a clue then there will be something for each of you.  So let’s get started on your search think of something your dad and I did in a church. (Wedding picture) Follow each and every clue. The next is found inside a shoe. (Shoe in one of the staircase) I have keys but I don't open a door (computer). Your family I can display...Pictures from another day. ( Picture in living room) It's near the window, that's for certain. Take a look behind a (Curtain) First gift

2.      I hope by now you are having fun, but by no means are you done. I have two hands upon my face. (grandfather clock) Something that could require a muzzle go ahead do the puzzle. (Dog) note to Pantry. Please don’t run word games can be a load of fun, think of one you see every day but do not play. (Scrabble)letter to “ Microwave” (Microwave) Second gift

3.      To find a city, you don't need your frontal lobe. Just run your fingers across the... (globe) I hope you are enjoying the chase, don’t slow down or lose your pace the next clue could be right in front of your face. “ Koobecaf” distorted picture of mailbox on Facebook.  (Mailbox) Third gift

4.      Horn blower, left or right, Steer straight to the clue; don’t take all night. (On the car steering wheel) Haha we got you good, how about you try the hood. (open hood) so your gift wasn’t under the hood, don’t give up your doing good. Open the car, but don’t go too far. Look all around and your gift shall be found. (trunk) Fourth Gift

5.      Santa Claus lives in the North Pole. The next clue can be found on a roll!  The last clue was kind of lame – sorry about that! The next can be found under a matt! I have black eyes and a pointy orange nose. I like the cold the best, especially when it snows! (snowman) If clothes are soggy and wet you may cry but here they will quickly dry.(dryer) Fifth gift

6.      Hope that last clue didn’t give you any static how about now you go to the…..(attic)Sixth gift

7.      You’ve found some gifts please don’t stress, for the next clue use GPS (N32⁰ 05.289’  W081⁰ 15.904’) ( dog house) Seventh gift

8.      Are you getting tired? Feeling despair? How about looking under a chair?(chair) Eighth gift

9.      Can use me to get a bit taller, especially if you are quite a bit smaller…(stool) Ninth gift

10. Well sorry this hunt is now done. It surely was a lot of fun, if only perhaps had by me. Oh one more gift is under the tree. Tenth gift

This Christmas was not our traditional Christmas, but the boys enjoyed every minute of it. As a child, Christmas was always the best memories. As a parent, that is what I strive for; to create memories for my sons, precious memories that will hopefully last a lifetime. I hope one day they look back with a smile and remember the year mom hid all presents.

Visiting Daufuskie Island’s ‘Newest Connection” Thunderbolt

Made a trip to Savannah yesterday for a rare and special treat, beignets at Hueys on River Street. Huey’s beignets are fine tasting indeed and on a par with my favorites , Café Du Monde, New Orleans. A cup of hot Café’ Au Lait to wash these sugary treats down and all is well in the world.
As I was savoring my second one I said “Hey Mary” ….. lets check out Thunderbolt where the Bloody Point ferry boats are housed. Only been to Thunderbolt once to chow down at Tubbys but that was long ago. I was interested to seeing for myself what would be in store for Bloody Point members and visitors alike that would embarking to a place called Daufuskie.
Well off we went and our Jeep Wrangler scooted down River Street made a right on Truman Parkway and in a flash, the five mile trip brought us into the place named for a bolt of lightning. Once there we were captivated by this funky little place that in 1856 had been a shipping port for local plantations. Thunderbolt has a nice “feel” to it and I surmised it would be accepted by Daufuskie passengers in that light as well. And I thought that was important to be departing from a place that had a touch of class and arriving at a place called Bloody Point that exuded comforting “low key” LowCountry elegance.
Now one must understand that you have to look hard or you will miss the cute downtown. But shops of all kinds abound and the maritime theme exerts itself with Marinas located on each side of the Intra Coastal Waterway (that’s ICW) for you mariners out there. And for the members living on Fuskie the sign of “the pig” (that’s Piggly Wiggley for Southern folks) is a sight to behold. Just think…no big deal to get your groceries. Plus that….saw a whole plethora of banks, restaurants, hardware stores and the like that are so important to “us Fuskie locals”. And there’s a Starbucks too for that comforting time to sit back on the “other side” and amuse oneself with all the bustling activity that is non existent on Fuskie.
Now one would think after all of this I would see a fine upstanding sign promoting to the world “BLOODY POINT/DAUFUSKIE EMBARCATION“. But after the Jeep navigated Thunderbolt’s every nook and cranny, it wasn’t until after I arrived home that I found out the jeep needed to cross over the ICW to the Savannah Bend Marina. There I was told is where Bloody Point signs are positioned to direct golfers and wide eyed visitors alike to their watery mode of transportation.
So the next time you are in Savannah shuufle off to Thunderbolt. Then take it upon yourself to tell your friends how Bloody Point has strategically situated themselves in Savannah to entice drivers and air passengers alike, to what is now called “Savannah’s North Pole”. I have always believed that Savannah should be Daufuskie’s portal and solution for Fuskie’s future success. It is apparent that the fine folks at Bloody Point Resort believe that too.
