An Anniversary Tradition – A Visit to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina

Mr. D and I have just returned from a week long celebration of our wedding anniversary at Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.  We had a wonderful time.  The weather was great and we realized we have been visiting Hilton Head Island for 34 years.  Some thing there have changed and improved but some things have remained the same.  It is a beautiful place and we look forward to our visit every year.  I have written blogs about our visits before but I did want to share a few pictures with you of our visit.

We stayed in the Sea Pines Plantation that is a gated community in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.  It includes beaches, the famous Harbor Town lighthouse, biking trails, a forest preserve, restaurants, boating access and so many wonderful things to do.

We visited Savannah and I took a picture of the entrance to an old home.

We ate at Mrs. Wilkes in Savannah and that is where I took the above picture.  Hilton Head Island has to be my most happy place in the whole world and I am never ready to leave and come home.  Mr. D and I have many wonderful memories from the Low Country.

By the way, I think one thing I have learned from visiting the area and seeing so many quality golf courses, I can spot a bad golf course anywhere.  I remember when we visited the Virgin Islands and the tour guide showed us a golf course and my first thought was, ” You call that a golf course.”  Even though I have never held a golf club in my hand, I will say the golf courses there are impeccable.

Thanks for stopping by.
