Hilton Head Island












We have been staying on Hilton Head Island at a motor coach luxury resort for a week. Having never been here before, I am not sure what I was expecting, but after some limited exploration, the island is basically devoted to golf, tennis and the horsey set. Sometime after they build the causeway bridge in the mid 1950’s, developers came in and bought about 90% of the island and built gated home and resort properties and associated services and stores. Today, most off the island is off limits except for the place you are staying and a few exceptions where you can get inside the gates to view historic sites or pay to get to look around the stores and restaurants. I should note this is also true for our resort, which is gated and restricted to registered guests only.

There are only two small beach accesses on the island for the general public on the second largest barrier island on the east coast.

Our time here has been enjoyable, but since we are not currently into the main activities noted above, not all that interesting. We have enjoyed the resort, but that alone is not likely to bring us back to the area.

Tomorrow we head to Blythe Island, Georgia.

Hi Chuck and Anneke,
I enjoyed talking with you this morning at the Maritime Center. I'm sorry I had to leave before you finished the tour. I would have liked to hear your comments on what we have done in our historic Coast Guard Station. Happy traveling! Jan Smith

George:
That is an interesting question. No need for child services, he will appear in a blog in next few days. He did get a bit beat up in the travels and needed a rest. He is ready to tour with us again.

Hallo Anneke en Chuck,
Nog vrolijk trekkend door de States? Zo te zien is het daar nog een lekkere temperatuur. Hier zijn de donkere dagen voor Kerst aangebroken. Waar zijn julie met de Kerst? Gaan jullie op bezoek bij de dochters of komen zij bij jullie? Sjoerd is met Kerst bij ons en dat vind ik wel fijn.
Tot horens en omdat ik geen kaart kan sturen: goede en fijne dagen en happy new year.
Margreeth
