Like most beach vacations, we spent a lot of time, well, at the beach. The sand in South Carolina was very different from the white sands of the Gulf Coast. It was more muddy. See?
And the last day we were there, the tide was so low that everywhere you stepped you felt hundreds of sand dollars and starfish. That was so neat! We've never "caught" those before.
The other thing we did everyday was ride bikes. We rode bikes everywhere! It seemed as if everyone on the island rode bikes--everywhere. Hilton Head is a very "green" community. I felt so eco-friendly. The week before we left home, Ella learned to ride her bike without training wheels. It took one time--really, only one time--and she was off! Just like a pro. This 10-day trip was just the right timing to help her perfect her riding skills. Can you tell from the smile on her face how proud she is?
The other adventure included alligators. This fellow was in our back yard one afternoon. I would guess probably 10 yards from our deck.
