It’s not heaven …

 

… but it’s about as close as we’re going to get here on this earth (or would be if DD and her family were here with us!).  We’re at our favorite destination … Hilton Head Island.  (And if any of you are notorious cat burglars, thinking that this is your opportunity to make a hit, think again … our next door neighbor is a retired police officer – ha!)

 

We left early yesterday morning … much earlier than anticipated, thanks to DH … he woke up in the middle of the night, couldn’t go back to sleep and got up and decided to start getting ready.  I’m a light sleeper, so that woke me up and the rest is “history”.  By leaving earlier, we were able to get here late afternoon, so we could check in, unpack and get some time on the beach before heading for dinner.

Speaking of dinner, we had a fantastic meal at a little hole in the wall place and made an early evening of it.

It’s not as warm as we’d like, but that’s not going to stop us from getting out and enjoying an afternoon on the beach.

  6. One of our favorite places on earth! The cafe next to the lighthouse in Sea Pines is neat...you can eat and see the dolphins playing. I'm jealous!

  7. Oh lucky you! I only live about a 2 hour drive away from where you are! So close, yet so far away...

    Yes, the weather has been cool, but it's supposed to warm up! Enjoy the beach!
