Travel Journal: Hilton Head Island, South Carolina

Sing along:

"Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina in the moorrrororning..."

And so here were are, Bernie, Laura, Jeff and myself, in Carolina in the morning.
South Carolina that is, on Hilton Head Island.

We flew into Savannah Georgia yesterday, and then did the short drive over to Hilton Head SC.
Today are kicking back and getting serious about relaxing 'cuz it is gloomy and rainy anyway. The multiple jacuzzis have been visited, breakfast of bagels and lox has been consumed on the balcony, and vacationing is in full bloom.

The boys plan on two days of golf and we'll be exploring Savannah one day, and going over to Daufuskie Island another day. Charleston may also get a visit...we'll see how it goes.

I've already read "The Water is Wide" by Pat Conroy, a true story about the area, and we watched "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" to prepare for the time in Savannah. Librarian me loves regional reading as part of any vacation.

(Feel free to join in on the Jill's Vacation book and video club if you'd like. The book is great!)

Our living room for the week.

The view from out balcony. (If it displays twice it is because I'm not sure if one of the pictures loaded...)

The beach is just a short walk away.
It sure is funny to not have the sunset happen over the water.
And it is really weird to head east to go the beach!
I think we'll get used to soon enough.
Ahhhh...family vacations.
Talk to ya later...

Oh, that would be weird, to head east to the beach, especially for us California girls!!

Enjoy your vacation....how cool to vacation with the whole family!

I'm looking forward to the photos of Savannah and other places you visit...this virtual vacation business is great, and thank you for sharing your good times with us!

Oh my goodness! Look at that place. I'm insanely jealous.

Have a great time. Say Hi to the lovely Laura for me.

Looks lovely! I'd be jealous if I wasn't enjoying the first couple of days of spring over here -- give me a week to get used to it and I can be jealous!

Anyways, you should check my paperdoll blog for today... ;)

I'm with you on that sunrise/sunset/east coast/west coast thing. This move from near the east coast of Florida to the west coast has me fairly well disoriented. I'll get the hang of it after a few sunsets at the beach.

Your photos are lovely, and I'm especially glad to see Jeff wearing a hat at the airport! You have trained your children well! Enjoy your vacation - can't wait to hear (and see!) more about it!
