HHI ’10

Somewhere along the line in the past two/three weeks, I completely forgot to make a post about Hilton Head.
My family has been going down to Hilton Head Island, SC, for over 20 years. We kinda like it.

We’ve started this thing where we go down every other year in June with the rest of my mom’s side of the family. We has good times. Here are the highlights.
1. Biking in the AM
Every morning Brent and I would go on a morning bike ride around the plantation or on the beach. We try to be healthy. It was fun.

2. Go beach…
Then the two of us would join up with my cousin Diana and go to the beach. We had these sweet chair-backpacks so that we could carry them when we rode our bikes there.

The water was pretty warm, and if it wasn’t warm, it was just the right temperature to be refreshing.

3. Go pool…
After spending the morning at the beach, we’d go back to the condo, have lunch, make up some drinks, and head to the pool.

It was so hot outside the the only way to be comfortable was to just sit in the pool all day. That’s ok with me though.
4. Go dinner…
Every night we went somewhere different for dinner, like the Crazy Crab,

5. Go to Savannah…
We went to Savannah one day too and took a tour.

We found this really yummy Cajun place called the Bayou Cafe, where I had jambalaya and it was delish.

6. Shelter Cove
Shelter Cove is a cool place where you can see big yachts and eat good foodz.


And of course, Brent and I can't always take srs pictures.


7. Have fun with the family…
Pretty much every day or night we played games like Catchphrase, Dumb Ass, Wits and Wagers, and even Beer Pong.

My legally-blind aunt in particular excelled at Beer Pong.
DSC06694 When we weren’t playing games, my mom brought DVDs from when Diana and I were toddlers, which was pretty hilarious.

It was fun times.

Ah, I've been wanting to go to Hilton Head for quite some time now! I went to Charleston this past spring and fell IN LOVE with it and we were hoping we'd have time to go to HHI but didn't actually end up doing so. But my fave place to vacay (which is closer for me than HH.) is Destin, Fl. It is vacation perfection for me and my fam!
