Leaving on a Jet Plane…

With more snow and ice on the way for the northeast, we escaped just in time to bask in the warmth of a South Carolina sun on Hilton Head Island.


We are staying near Harbour Town at the toe of the island and much of what we’ve done so far is within walking distance…. especially the fantastic sunsets at night!


The first thing we do on the island is slow down. There are tons of bikers and walkers and we are learning to live the leisurely life style of the residents. It isn’t an island with lots of nightlife but an island laced with golf courses, tennis courts, bike rentals, walking trails, nature preserves, and 12 miles of glorious ocean beaches…. not to mention fabulous Lowcountry cuisine.

If you love a live oak, this is the place to see an island full of them, covered with Spanish moss and full of resident bird life.


The island took a big hit from Hurricane Matthew and a remarkable clean up is underway on every street…including ours where we got to know one owner’s sweet pup. 


Cleanup has not interfered with island life. Roads are clear and residents are replanting.

We chose Hilton Head for just the right reasons: food, nature, relaxation. It’s a very good thing.
