Nov 13, 2014 - Hilton Head Island, SC

11/13 - 11/18/2014 11/13/14 (Thursday) We pulled out of James Island Park CG at 11 am, dropped of the rental car at Enterprise, lunched at the Early Bird Diner and drove the 100+ miles to Hilton Head Island, SC. On the way to Hilton Head Island, we again stopped at the Carolina Cider Company (we remember stopping there when we were here 5 years ago) and purchased a bottle of peach and muscadine (grape) cider. The peach was great. I would pass up on the muscadine…tasted like fermented grape juice. We arrived at the Hilton Head Harbor RV...

Apr 12, 2014 - Day 20

Sorry I have been MIA for a little while guys! But I have a bunch to tell you! I'm still in Hilton Head for right now! I kind of ran out of money and had to get a job! Lucky for me, I found a job really quick at a bar/restaurant by the beach called the Big Bamboo! I have been working there a week today! I am also working a double today so I am on my break right now! I absolutely love it! The people are a lot of fun and I fit it perfectly with everyone there! On my first day (I was just training) the manager handed me $20 for my shift... but...

The Honest Gypsy

Mar 31, 2014 - Day 8

I woke up around 9, said goodbye to Joe and headed towards Hilton Head! I was craving Buffalo Wild Wings (big surprise there) and so I went to the one in Beaufort! I talked to the bartender and a really nice man sitting next to me at the bar and they gave me the "D-L" of what I needed to know about the area. The man was from Kentucky and informed me that Savannah is pretty much the murder capital of the world! So, luckily I knew not to go down there alone! While at Bdubs, I messaged a few people on couchsurfing.org! A girl names Ali...

Oct 14, 2013 - Hilton Head

While in Savannah, we took a day trip up to Hilton Head, a Lowcountry resort town located on an island across the border in South Carolina. The island gets its name from Captain William Hilton. In 1663, Captain Hilton identified a headland near the entrance to Port Royal Sound, which he named "Hilton's Head" after himself. The island features 12 miles of beachfront on the Atlantic Ocean and is a popular vacation destination. Everything is upscale here. Approximately 70% of the island, including most of the tourist areas, is located...

Jun 2, 2013 - Hilton Head Island, Sunday

As we were returning to the campground this morning after breakfast, we saw this copperhead snake that had just had the tip of its tail hit by a car. It's only the second copperhead I've ever seen, so I snapped the shot. I checked our gator lake twice today, but no gator sightings. We also drove to several lagoons that are known gator spots, but no luck there, either. Maybe they take Sundays off? We drove over to the Sea Pines community, which was the original community on the Island. The first house there was built out of seashells (see...

Jun 1, 2013 - Hilton Head Island, SC

Lesson #3: When in strange lands, always watch where you're going. After I posted yesterday's entry, we went for an evening walk through the Fayetteville campground. I came upon the snake first. Bill was looking elsewhere and nearly stepped on it (it wasn't moving, except for its tongue). It was over 4 feet long, but it startled me enough to shout out a loud profanity (I am a great screamer, as many snakes, gators, spiders, and hairy-tailed rodents already know). So, even though it wasn't poisonous, I guess you could say that I saved Bill's...

Apr 2, 2013 - And onward we go

We are moving northward-planning to arrive in Charleston, SC on Thursday night where we will rent a car and drive to Jacksonville for Larry's dad's service on Saturday, then back to the boat on Sunday. Today I'll catch-up with a couple of places where we have just been. On Easter Sunday, we stopped in one of our favorite spots-one that is WAY off the beaten path: Kilkenny Creek, GA. The "marina" is really a dock at a fish camp on a middle sized creek off the ICW, but the setting is absolutely gorgeous. Looking up Kilkenny Creek on the web,...

Jan 6, 2013 - Raining in SC

We awoke this morning to the pitter-patter of rain on the roof. We knew showers were in the forecast so we had decided it would be a good day to get some "chores" done. They have a beautiful laundry room here so we did our laundry. The washers and dryers take credit cards!!!! I was so surprised! But, then again, I have not been to a laundromat for 25 years! Luckily, they also take quarters, which we had brought along. By the time the laundry was done, the rain had stopped so we took a long walk and found a hidden cemetery just off a power...

Jan 5, 2013 - Bicycle adventures

It was another great day on the island. We decided to take our bicycles out for a spin. This area has so many bike paths that it is a pleasure to ride. Also, it's all so level - no hills! We brought the bikes down to the Coligney Beach parking area and set off from there. As usual, Terra got a lot of comments from everyone we passed.( Ahhhhh. Oh, cute! Daddy, daddy, look!) We cut down one of the beach access roads (paved with carpet, if you can believe it!) and rode down the beach. The sand is packed down hard near the water and you can...

Jan 4, 2013 - A lovely day on HHI

We had a great day exploring Hilton Head Island. First impressions were good: very subdued signage for businesses and classy street signs, but very busy with traffic, even in January. It was a sunny day with temps around 60 degrees. Not bad for January. We walked several beaches. Terra loved it! We found some secluded areas and walked and walked without seeing another person. We had lunch at a terrific sandwich shop called Stu's Surf Shop. We can highly recommend it with their homemade bread. Of course, then we needed to walk more beaches...

Jan 3, 2013 - Palm trees!

We had our first palm tree sighting today! 378 miles today. We are camped at Hilton Head Harbor RV Resort and Marina. This is the most beautiful RV park we have ever seen! Rated a 10-10-10. It rained a bit this afternoon but is supposed to clear tonight. Temperature is 50 degrees. Not tropical but not bad. We will be here at least 4 nights. We are looking forward to exploring the island. Travel was great today. I had a crock pot meal cooking while we traveled. Chicken with stuffing smellled so good towards the end of the afternoon. We...
