May 11, 2016 – Hilton Head Beach and Electric Boat Trip at Palmetto Bluffs
This morning we took a drive around part of Hilton Head Island looking for a beach we could walk and, on the recommendation of someone we met, wound up at the Marriott Beach and Golf Resort.
With an almost cloud-free sunny skies, temperatures in the mid to high 70s and a gentle sea breeze we took a 3-4 mile stroll
down the beach …
picking our way around dozens of jellyfish which had been recently washed up,
a horseshoe crab,
and temporarily abandoned chairs,
all the while people watching.
This afternoon we got together with Bob and MJ Newbert for a cruise on an electric boat,
Kind of a smaller version of the African Queen
Notice the resemblance to Bogie’s character, Charlie Allnut?
part of the “fleet” of small boats available to the residents of Palmetto Bluffs along a extremely peaceful six mile man-made river …
along which there are several beautiful homes.
There was also an abundance of wildlife.
Double Breasted Cormorants
Great Blue Heron
Cormorant taking Flight
Egret in Flight
Unfortunately, the several turtle we saw were too far away to capture.
This evening, dinner at
where the Happy Hour specials included live music and pulled-pork and BLT tacos for the unbelievable price of just $1.00!
