Hilton Head Birthday Weekend – Part 1

We had plans to go away for the weekend and visit friends. They fell through at the last minute, but then a sweet deal fell into our laps and the morning of a roadtrip…we decided to go to Hilton Head, South Carolina.  Todd went decades ago, but I’ve never been.  It’s been close to three years since we have heard the ocean.  It’s also rare that the four of us travel together and don’t know a soul.  It was nice to fall off the map for a couple of days.

It’s also rare that we catch a sunrise when we go on vacation.  But Todd slept in Friday morning and he had the promise of sleeping in on Sunday for his birthday, so I was able to get away with waking them up before 6am and dragging them to the beach on Saturday morning.

They were surprised at how many other people were out to see the sunrise.  And they agreed it was worth getting up so early to see.

After the sun rose and I turned my back to it, I saw that the moon was still high in the sky. And my youngling was freezing in her nightgown and bare feet.
