The Lovely Lowcountry

After Graduation, I was in need of a little R&R and there are few places better to relax than Hilton Head Island. It's about a four hour drive from Athens, down through Milledgeville, Dublin, through Savannah and up to the island. I'm lucky enough to have family that lives there full time. My niece, Bella, goes to the beach on the weekends and of course, complain about the tourists.

So, while it's still a vacation for me, I spent some of the week helping Bella with school projects and organizing her space. Ten year olds can be a mess. As the school year is wrapping up, parents and family were invited to school for a portfolio day, a time to showcase the student's work over the last year. It was so cool to see Bella's class and how much she's grown. I remember the day she was born! I couldn't be more proud of her.

While she was in school, I loved exploring the island, visiting the outlets, riding bikes and enjoying the delicious food, especially at Truffles Cafe. Their Portabella Mushroom burger was one for the books. If you go, ask for the side of Truffled Mac & Cheese. It's heaven on a plate.

We've all come a long way since this last post from Hilton Head. When crossed the bridge leaving the Island, I was already looking forward to my next visit. There's just something about family & the Lowcountry.
