Hilton Head Island, Once Again

We first visited Hilton Head Island in 1980. We were awed by what the HHI had to offer: 12 miles of beach that you can ride a bicycle on the entire length; great gathering places like Harbor Towne, Coligny Plaza, Shelter Cove, South Beach, Main Street, and many others; amazing restaurants, night life; dozens of miles of bicycle paths; upscale or laid back housing. It's a terrific place. We bought a time share 25 years ago, then sold it and bought a condo. Sold it to buy another condo. Sold it and bought a house. Finally sold that house and bought a mountain place near Asheville NC. But we still love HHI. This is our second visit this year. See this blog, and this one. We have also commented on how much we love the Hilton Head Harbor Rv Resort & Marina. We couldn't get a waterfront spot this time but no matter it was still great.

If any of you are planning to visit Hilton Head, give a call. We will probably meet you there!

The Lighthouse at Harbor Towne. It was almost dark.

We expected to see Greg Russell, who has been singing under this Live Oak tree for35 years.
Turns out he sings every night except Saturday when we were there.
But what a treat it was to hear Stepping Stones. the lead singers are brother & sister. She is 16 and they have been singing together for 5 years! Incredible music, classic rock, most of which was before their birth.

We had dinner at The Crazy Crab, overlooking the marsh. This was the view from our table.

Diva sits pretty at our spot. Our flamingoes enjoyed the grass.

Next stop Myrtle Beach, another of South Carolina's fabulous beach resorts. We haven't been there in 30 years since we love Hilton Head so much and Myrtle beach was 5 hours from us.

Ciao, Frank
