Here's a picture I took from Harbour Town a couple of weeks ago. The lighthouse is still a favorite for us to visit no matter how many times we've been there.

Cheers,
Will

Good magazine to know what's going on in our town. We have always gotten it for free even when we lived in VA (maybe because we were property owners?)

Dave,

I have used the Hilton Head Monthly website before and they actually have a digital version of the entire magazine online each month. The link to their website is below and you can click the digital edition to see this month's magazine.

I have a paid subscription to Hilton Head Monthly delivered here in Lexington. The September issue is on my coffee table now and I love the cover art. The article on preserving Gullah history is very interesting.

David Lauderdale had an interesting article in today's Island Packet about Gullah history. A historical marker was to be unveiled today, marking where the island's first public junior high school was (on Beach City Road) and the Gullah children would not have to leave the island for an education past the 6th grade. Lots of history here and David Lauderdale is a wonderful purveyor of it.

Here's an interesting blurb from Wikipedia:

Historically, the Gullah region extended from the Cape Fear area on North Carolina's coast south to the vicinity of Jacksonville on Florida's coast. Today the Gullah area is confined to the Georgia and South Carolina Lowcountry. The Gullah people and their language are also called Geechee, which may be derived from the name of the Ogeechee River near Savannah, Georgia.[1] Gullah is a term that was originally used to designate the creole dialect of English spoken by Gullah and Geechee people. Over time, its speakers have used this term to formally refer to their creole language and distinctive ethnic identity as a people. The Georgia communities are distinguished by identifying as either "Freshwater Geechee" or "Saltwater Geechee", depending on whether they live on the mainland or the Sea Islands.

Will:

Thanks. We have only been to Hilton Head once and really liked it. My wife in I live near Atlanta. We are looking at places to retire to. Estimated retirement date is May 2020...subject to life events.
We had booked a condo on the beach last month, but Irma decided that we needed to change our plans. We have rescheduled for the first week in May 2018.

Hey Eric, that's the same thing my wife and I did. We began to visit places we thought we may want to retire (lived in VA just outside DC for 40+ years). After visiting HH we began to watch property on line, then met with a realtor and bought a small home. We rented it out long term for several years until we were ready to retire and have now lived here about 5 years. We love it (despite two evacuations in the last year!) and absolutely did the right thing for us.

Hilton Head is where I plan to retire. I still have about twenty years to go, but that is the plan.

That's a picture rarely seen! It's been real cold here in southern Ohio the last few days...lows below 0°...I think Hilton Head is getting our snow right now! Kinda hard to find a golf ball in that even if its right down the middle of the fairway! Enjoy the white stuff!!

No joy in snow! Heat pump has been running all day non stop (thankfully). The only light at the end of the tunnel is 61 on Monday. Didn't move here for this!

Dave,

That is truly an amazing sight. I've never seen snow on Hilton Head Island. Thanks for posting pictures!

The poor heat pump has been running 24/7 for 3 days now...cmon baby you can make it. Supposed to go up to 41 today so maybe it can take a break!

Is that last picture a giant icicle?

It's the chain downspout. It stayed a block of ice for a few days. Finally getting back to normal temps...weirdly cold winter. The Bermuda fairways get brown in the winter but exceptionally brown this year.

I imagine the weather is a little nicer today. How are you?

Things are going well down here. The past 2 or 3 weeks have been beautiful days and temperate nights. The golf courses are greening up nicely after a pretty cold winter and some azaleas are in bloom. The pine pollen has been thick and makes the air look smoky when the wind blows. My wife and I walked the dog on the beach a few days ago and quite a few people out and we're seeing lots of "foreign" license plates. Pretty nice time of year...come on down, y'all.

That's a very cute dog Dave. He or she is lucky to live in such a beautiful place. Only a few more months to go before my trip. How busy is Hilton Head right now? Are all of the restaurants open?

My wife says Boscoe doesn't know how fortunate he is to be the only child of an active older couple living on Hilton Head island. I do. We did go down to Harbour Town to walk Boscoe on Sunday afternoon and although it was "chilly" (but sunny) there were quite a few people there. The light house is wrapped in plaid for the upcoming tournament. Everything is open and I've seen lots and lots of tourists on our golf course all winter. The last few weeks have been exceptionally nice weather wise. Going to be cooler today-high 58- but highs in the mid 60's for the next week or so. Pollen was extremely heavy this year but mostly finished now. Restaurants are open (went to Okko Tuesday for Thai--nice place) and Crazy Crab had a pretty big fire yesterday that will keep it closed for the foreseeable future. Nice time of year to be here.
