Welcome To Hilton Head

We made it!  After planning and scheming to get away from busy lives, my wonderful friends joined me for a few days of sunshine, catching up, and seeing a few sights of this charming southern life.
Fresh from Salt Lake City, Utah, my friend and partner in crime.
From Benson, Minnesota; friends of 30+ years.
Everyone felt we had to stop at the famous southern Waffle House that dot the roadsides.  If you've never been to a Waffle House,  to say you're missing something would be a stretch.  It was fun to walk in and have the "Mornin!" greet you by all of the staff. It is quite an eye opener to the newbies. We went there for their famous pe-can waffle.  We weren't planning on having one of our waffle orders dropped on the floor. Nor were we expecting to have our coffe poured out of a glass.  One can test the cleanliness of a restaurant kitchen by how clean the bathrooms are.  We didn't go into the bathroom, we were too nervous. You remember that famous line, "If you don't want to know the answer, don't ask the question?" 

We are waiting for the sunshine on our shoulders.  Ah, knock, knock, MotherNature, do you hear me?? The weather is not being very cooperative!
The ocean front restaurants (and margaritas) make for quite an enjoyable day, rain or no rain. Good friends and lots of laughs.  Life is good!
