    What is your idea of the perfect Sunday in SoWal? How does it differ from your typical Sunday routine?

    my perfect Sunday in SoWal is at home in PJs and a book. but I do like lunch at Red Bar then a stroll on the beach, when I feel like leaving the house.

    Mine is heading out on Eastern Lake in the canoe for some fishing with my daughter in the morning while soaking in the peaceful primal beauty around us. Afterwards a leisurely stop at the outflow for a picnic lunch and some swimming. Finally laying back in the soft sand with the warm sun beaming down on me while listening to my daughter's laughter as she plays in the outflow!

    ...and the most amazing thing is, this is my typical Sunday routine! (winters not included)

    I'm happy when Sunday offers up some time for an extended bike ride.

    Breakfast at The Red Bar, followed by golf at Camp Creek, followed by sunset at Grayton beach.

    Normal routine at home is church, golf, dinner with family & friends.

    Brunch at Hibiscus, Fire, or Red Bar...depending on weather and mood. Relaxing at the beach, weather permitting, then oysters, sunset, and home by 8ish...

    Going to church in the morning and a beach nap on a warm day - or an inside nap on a cold day - gotta have that Sunday afternoon nap!

    Porch, pool, beach, nap - in any order - maybe eat at Georges or Charlie's donut truck or Stinkys or the Red Bar at some point.

    Anything outside in SoWal! Hard to beat a little time in the gulf and beach BBQ.

    If I'm feeling energetic I LOVE to go for a hike and a picnic at one of our beautiful state parks, such as Grayton Beach State Park, Topsail, Camp Helen or Eden Gardens.

    Near the ATL and in SoWal as often as possible
    Breakfast at Hibiscus or Red Bar or a muffin at Modica, then being totally lazy all day except for walking on the beach. Not having any programs, homework, or exams to grade.

    Normal Sunday? Church, lunch, visiting Mom (love you always, Mom), and grading programs, homework, and exams.

    For me it depends on the season. During Spring break and Summer love my home...working in the yard, talking over the fence with my neighbor, walking the dog around Allen Loop early evening and having a late dinner with family and friends.

    Fall and Winter....taking a ride on my bike, watching sunset west Dune Allen beach, going to Eden state Park for a walk and some meditation time and having dinner with family and friend.

    A very simple Sunday.

    Perfect Sunday for me is breakfast and Mimosa's at "The Red Bar Church" listening to Dread Clampitt. Then, a stroll on the beach.

    Here in the winter it is hibernation day for me. Laundry, cleaning, naps.

    In spring and summer, you can find me in my yard....

    Another beautiful SoWallian day of blessed peace and quiet to do whatever I feel like doing mood-to-moment! I like sloooowww cooking on Sundays... sometimes that involves the kitchen, sometimes boating, sometimes the beach, and sometimes just comfortably nestled into the recliner-chair-custom-butt-dent armed with crosswords and books :D
    oh yea... and spontaneous drifting dreaming...

    bike path at dawn

    Early Sunday morning is the best time to take the Timpoochee Trail (AKA bike path) for peace and quiet (less traffic). I like to walk the same mile, getting to know it better each week, each season, each year. Always seeing something new, in a different light, and mood. I try to put off the business of life until Monday and let life meander where it will on Sunday. I wonder who this bird is? [​IMG]

    Sundays were always my "do whatever the hail I want to do" day.
    One of the best Sundays I had was a long morning walk on the beach, brunch at Fire with great friends then the rest of the day at Grayton with friends & family.

    I look forward to Sundays in SoWal again! :wave: I'll be there in a few days :D
