South Carolina Vacay - (pics heavy)

After we left the family reunion in Rocky Mount, NC we drove to Bluffton, SC to spend the rest of the week with my family at their vacation house. We arrived on Sunday and had a feast on barbecue ribs and great southern food. It was delicious. The next morning, Monday, we went directly to the pool. I had to work on my vacation suntan immediately when I got there, lol. My Mom and my little cousins (Ga
rnet and Ta ylor) went to the pool too.MONDAY
We drove through Hilton Head Island and although its an island, you cant see any of the water from the main road. In order to see the beach, you have to actually go into one of the residential communities. So, this is about all I saw in Hilton Head. lol.

We took a day trip to Savannah, Georgia. It was a really nice trip. The first thing we did was hopped on the Trolley Tour. The benefit is that we can see the entire city in about an hour.. and if there are things that we want to visit, we can hop off and on to check out the specific locales.

Here are a few pics from the trolley. Savannah is such a picturesque city.
It's a city rich in tradition and charm.

The gang's all here for dinner.
After the trolley tour we met up for dinner at The Lady & Sons restaurant owned by FoodNetwork star Paula Deen. After confusing seating arrangements, we dined on a delicious meal.

This was a pretty relaxing day. I think we spent most of the day in the house watching movies. In the evening we got ready for a cruise. We went on a cruise along the Okatie River. The Captain had grown up on the river and he was great at explaining all of the different species that live and thrive along the river. We even saw some dolphins frolicking in the w ater. I was amazed! Im not usually an outdoors kind of girl but the breeze off of that water was so relaxing.

We started the morning with a fun breakfast at a local spot called the Squat&Gobble. We went back to the vacation house and then Hubby was off to the gun range. He was a good shot.

After relaxing, we had dinner reservations at the country club in the Tuscan Room t o celebrate Hubby's birthday early.

Cousin Nikki and Mom were dressed lovely for the evening. I had worked on several outfits for Cousin Nikki's month long vacay. But this outfit she chose all on her own. I really liked what she chose for herself. Mom has consulted with me on several of her outfits too, but this one is all her own design as well.. and a cute look it is!
Its sad that I cant even remember what I did on Friday... but I liked it, whatever it was, lol. Hubby on the other hand, went out fishing with the guys and he got to drive his first golf cart.

We spent the day doing one of my favorite pass times. Ofcourse one of my favorite stops was Stein Mart. We stopped at a few other places but we had to stop for lunc cuz I wore the rest of the crew out with my search for a great shopping deal, lol. We went to lunch a local pizza shop voted best on the island. After lunch we decided to do a little sightseeing of historic Bluffton. It was nice and we found an adorable church. Mom took a pic outside the church.

After we got back from shopping we took a small break and then we were off to hit some golf balls at the driving range. This was my first time hitting balls.. and playing an actual golf hole. The scenery for playing golf is awesome. But there is so much technique to getting a great hit.. I may stick to miniature golf... and play only for fun.

My first golf game!
