I just found this old photo of me from Hilton Head, taken in 1993 when Jill and I lived there. Things have changed in the last 25 years, but I still love going to Hilton Head and Jill and I are still together (now with three teenage kids). This was taken in January, which explains the coat on the beach. The shirt and hair are harder to explain Laughing smiley

The coat: just coming out of the jean jacket era
The jeans: just coming out of the acid washed jeans era
The shirt: grunge?
The hair: ???

I grew up in the 80's but I still remember some of this!!! LOL!!!

Getting old stinks! I very possibly could have been there at that time too for vaca! Probably wearing similar stuff...maybe a NASCAR shirt instead of the flannel!

The beach looks good!

As they say, "Getting old is better than the alternative."

The beach on Hilton Head has changed very little in the last 25 years, even if the rest of the island has seen a lot of growth. I do miss those days, but things aren't so bad now. Just a lot more responsibilities, which means less time for the beach. Until I can retire, of course!

Love the pic, Will!

Reminds me of a Z. Cavaricci ad.

I have to laugh... when my kids saw this picture they had a few opinions of my "look" from 1993.

The one thing I keep thinking of is how few pictures I have from those days (my early 20's). We were actually using film cameras back then, which you had to take to get developed somewhere and then remember to pick the pictures up. Even though I wish I had more photos from my 20's, I am also very glad that many of my questionable decisions weren't immortalized in photos. Kids today all have cameras in their smart phones and every moment is captured digitally by one, if not more, people. That could be good and it could be bad...

Still, I wish I had taken a lot more photos of Hilton Head Island in the early 90's. Anyone else have old HHI pics?
