"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you
didn't do, than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away
from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.

Explore. Dream. Discover."

-Mark Twain

Hilton Head S.C.

On Sunday we left the Thunderbolt/Savannah area and headed about 26 miles north to Hilton Head Island. The island is sectioned into several residential "plantations" .  There is a color scheme for residential and business alike, this keeps the island from being over run with "resort flashiness".  Homes exteriors are done in muted earth tones to blend into nature, and nature it has.  Pines, oaks, and palms flourish here.

The marina was pretty nice, there was an in ground pool, and it was 80 something degrees with high humidity, so we spent most of the afternoon cooling off and relaxing.  The next day brought rain, we rented a car with another looper couple and drove around the island. This would be a great place to come back to.

This is the first "gator" we have seen on this trip, he was hanging out in the marina.

Look closely, there was a rainbow after the rain cleared out.

Hi Jim and Mary! The photos the last few weeks look great! Glad you are meeting with warm weather and blue skies!
Happy Mother's Day Mary! I hope you enjoyed your day! Hopefully lounging by the pool while Jim served drinks and appetizers!
We took June out to dinner. Then we went back to Joe and Shirleys for dessert. A good time was had by all, actually too good, we are all fat and happy and over indulged.
Shirley looks and feels great as she is on a reprieve from the chemo.
Take care. Continued safe travels!
Love Sue and crew....
