Hilton Head

31 May

On the last full day of our trip, Alex’s family gave us a tour of Hilton Head Island.

Neither of us had ever been before so it was nice to see the area with a few experts!

Our first stop was a cute area of small shops and restaurants.  We had some time before lunch to walk around and explore.

Do remember when slap bracelets were the coolest thing ever?!  When I was in about third or fourth grade, they were all the rage but eventually the school banned them because too many kids were getting hurt.  Sad, but true.

Eventually it was time for lunch at the Salty Dog Cafe (not to be confused with the Wreck of the Salty Dog, as pictured above).

Everyone at the table shared an order of fish bites and hush puppies.  I hadn’t seen hush puppies on a menu in so long!  For my entrée, I had the shrimp salad.  It was really great.  The shrimp was plump and juicy and it felt good to eat some veggies.

After lunch, we continued on our way…

Do you see the tiny crab?  There were tons of them crawling under the docks.  They must have been no bigger than the palm of my hand; so cute!

We walked around Harbortown for a bit before stopping for a cool snack.

I went with cookie dough!  It was just what I needed to cool down 🙂

Eventually we made our way to the beach but not without stopping in a gift shop first.  I couldn’t resist taking this picture for all you golf lovers out there.

I couldn’t imagine carrying that around with you as you golf.  Hilarious!

Once we made it to the ocean, we walked along the beach for a little while.  The water was so warm and the beach was quite crowded!

Many thanks to Alex’s family for showing us around Hilton Head.  We had a great time seeing the island!

Have you ever been to Hilton Head?
