A Room With a View

Hubby and I are in South Carolina on Hilton Head Island. We definitely have a room with a view. The photos below are taken from the 5th floor balcony which is perfect for morning coffee and an evening game of bridge. In the morning, the water sparkles like diamonds.

My brother and sis-in-law invite us to share their beautiful two bedroom HH Island apartment with them every September. Until about 4 years ago I had not visited South Carolina. What a truly spectacular place this is.

Golf courses are everywhere, so the guys play golf almost every day. The girls? Well we lunch, shop and go to the beach. The wine above (s.u.p.e.r.i.o.r. Sauvignon Blanc) and the Ceasar Salad were lunch today at Bistro 17.

After a round of golf in perfect weather, the guys came home and whipped up a fabulous pot of homemade spaghetti with Italian Sausage meatballs. Sis-in-Law and I admit to being spoiled rotten, but appreciative after an exhausting day of shopping and spending all of our energy on saving them money, Dinner was masterful. This dinner is a tradition wherever we travel together.

Findalis at Monkey in the Middle and Karen at The Lonely Conservative are posting here while I’m gone. What great friends! I’ll post some too and hope to have more photos of this little piece of heaven on the South Carolina coast, home of two courageous members of Congress, Rep. Trey Gowdy and Senator Tim Scott.
