Hilton Head, SC

Yesterday we went to Hilton Head Island in South Carolina. What a disappointment that was. It’s not anything like the beach towns we’re familiar with. Actually, you can’t even see the beach without parking somewhere and walking to the beach. Only problem with that is that there is no place to park and there are only 3 places that have public beach access. We parked in a hotel parking lot and went inside and asked if we could park there for 10 minutes so we could go see the beach. The beach itself was actually very beautiful. It’s just too bad that only those who are staying in one of the condos or resorts can see it.

We also visited a few of their little museums. Not really much to see but it felt good to get out and walk around the grounds. Pretty informative too. I never knew that indigo was such a big crop here. Guess I never really thought about it before.

We had lunch at the Crazy Crab restaurant. I had fish and chips and Rod had a crab cake sandwich. Both were very tasty. These statues were in the parking lot. Not sure what their significance was. One of them, Diana the Huntress, was for sale in the kayak store. Hmmmmm

We are planning on leaving here tomorrow and heading to Atlanta to have the satellite dish installed. We’ll probably be staying at Hard Labor State Park for a few weeks. Everything is done on the rig and the truck so there’s nothing holding us here. We’ve had a nice time here in the parking lot at Camping World. A whole month of free electricity, wifi and space. We’ve met some really nice people too. A couple that is parked next to us were here 2 months before us so they’ve been here for 3 months now waiting for parts. They really don’t care that much because they are also fulltimers and are enjoying the freebees too. They’ve been fulltiming for 7 years now and have really been a blessing to us for showing us all kinds of tricks and tips. We’re really going to miss them.

You've been gone 24 hours and we miss you already. Hope you had a safe trip to Atlanta.
