Tuesday, Day 4- Ryan and I drove ~30 miles to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina! Did you know Savannah, Georgia was so close?  I didn’t!

I was excited to find out Hilton Head Island was so close because it was the first beach I EVER went to–I didn’t know if I’d ever get to go back!  I went in 2001 (I was 13 y/o) with my cousin and his family.  I was invited as the babysitter.  Here’s a flashback…

Anyway :)

This was Ryan’s first time to South Carolina.  We both agreed it was our favorite part of the trip because we rode bikes around the Island and on the beach.  16 miles of bike riding to be exact – my personal best.  Hilton Head has bike paths throughout the whole island and it is so beautiful!  We even rode along the beach – I’d call that a dream come true!  (Side note- there were tons of dead jellyfish on the beach – ew! We found a crab in one of them. Yes, I’m a biology major so I examined them.)

The day was sooo great, even if it was cloudy and I had to wear two jackets and bike leggings!  So much for the swimsuits I packed.  We took a break for coffee and a snack and after dark, we ate dinner at a cafe.  When we got back to Savannah, I was EXHAUSTED!

We want to go back to both of the Carolinas (I’ve never been to NC) – and maybe check them out as potential places to live?

Enjoy the pictures and come back for Day 5!
