Dave and I spent the holiday from wednesday evening until yesterday (sunday) at Hilton Head Island!
The package for our villa (close to the beach) included golf for him....so for about 5 hours a day I was on my own :c) I finished quilting a small scrappy jacob's ladder block quilt while watching old movies, and did a lot of walking to try to keep the pumpkin pie from settling on my thighs! (I don't think it worked, but oh well!)
The boys both had to work this past weekend, and since we got the villa rental about 6 weeks ago....and it was non-refundable.....we ditched them ;c)
I love Hilton Head and all the other islands down the SC coast all the way down Georgia. I love how the moss hangs off the old craggy oak trees...it is SO "SOUTHERN". The weater was warm, low 70's....and I should have packed shorts!
And yes, I forgot to pack the camera on the rush to get out of town...I would have loved to have shown you the old oak trees dripping with moss, the flowers, the ocean so blue, and the HUGE alligators we spotted sunning themselves along the water on the golf course outside our villa! Those freaked me out...But fascinated me at the same time..this one was HUGE...I mean...HUGE....he didn't look real....
We avoided all post-thanksgiving shopping. Hilton Head doesn't have that much anyway, it's off season. We did end up at Sam's club and bought a few things, but it was more what we needed, not in the way of gifts.
