Hilton Head Island
We arrived with a bit of daylight left...this was our view
Skies were clear that evening
Next day? Rainy early, then clearing
We decided to walk to the beach
Local squirrel, being squirrelly
Spanish Moss, of course
We especially liked these!
And, hey, they had a beach! Coligny Beach, actually
Clearing skies were most welcome
A Coligny landmark, so to speak
Lovely flowers below our balcony
Bawdy, naughty flowers
I especially loved all the turtles we saw!
This one went for a brief ramble
And then there was this!
A four-foot gator, right there in our lagoon
We walked a sandy path through these dunes
We found this Horseshoe Crab shell on the beach
It had lots of these in it...the Bug jumped when she flipped it over!
These winged beasts soared overhead
Yep, definitely our kind of beach!
We had the usual driving misadventures
There were bridges (Bridge to Hilton Head)
And more bridges
High bridges (Savannah River Bridge)
And long bridges (view from Broad River Bridge)
We visited favorite places
There were squirrels in Savannah
And little lizards
We gazed upon sprawling salt marshes
Pinckney Island oyster beds at low tide
And walked a bit along this road on Pinckney Island
Moss overhead, of course, and songbirds!
Smelly salt marches around Pinckney
And some beautiful, soaring pine trees!
