Our vacation came late this year. In fact, it coincided nicely with my birthday and was a complete joy. You are about to see why. We drove down to Hilton Head Island in South Carolina – a barrier island between Charleston, SC and Savannah, Georgia.
“…vicinity to the sea is desirable, because it is easier to do nothing by the sea than anywhere else, and because bathing and basking on the shore cannot be considered an employment but only an apotheosis of loafing.” – E. F. Benson
It was paradise – sunshine glistening on water.
Rocky beach head.
Dunes and sea grass.
Sand castles left behind by dreaming children.
Blue umbrellas hovering over chairs along the shore.
Lots of seashells!
The conch was still inside this shell so I took the picture and my husband hurled it back into the sea.
Rocks were covered in them.
Sand dollars and horseshoe crabs!
And my very first star fish!
But this is just a sampling of the wonderful trip. Part II will feature more of this island paradise.
