Hilton Head Island is close to Savannah, Ga., and barely out of the way on the drive from there to Charleston, S.C. So we decided to swing by.
The detour was kind of a bust. We didn't really know where we were going and had no specific destination in mind. We ended up eating a really good lunch that Paul had scoped out online earlier, and then we left the island without even seeing a beach.
But we did stop just outside the island -- so close, it was practically on it, I would say -- at the Pinckney Island Nature Reserve. We walked along the marshland for about an hour, enjoying the sunny, beautiful weather. Then on to Charleston.
And now, a few more photos.
|The little bit of land on the right is pretty much the only photographic proof|
that I ever visited Hilton Head Island. Oops.
|Paul is proud of ... ?|
|More birds. Or the same birds elsewhere?|
|So many birds ...|
|... and trees. Nature!|
And a few more photos from Charleston ...
|Edith and me.|
|Now, that looks like the South!|
|Nothing like that in Ohio.|
