Oh, Carolina!
We've finally arrived at our main destination -- Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort. Thanks to an amazing FL resident special, we were able to reserve a 2-bedroom villa for several dollars a night cheaper than the published rates on the studios. Needless to say, it's absolutely amazing here -- but I don't expect anything less of Disney.

We're both exhausted, so we're taking the rest of today as a lazy day off. Todd's catching the tail-end of the NFL Draft, and I just put more photos online. We couldn't resist heading to the Savannah Historic District one last time early this morning. We took Claire for walks through the parks and shot more of the beautiful scenery. Again, they're all small 'til we get home since we're still on dialup -- but I have two new galleries with about 1/4 of the pics taken:

1. Savannah Historic District - 04.27.03
2. Hilton Head Island - 04.27.03

I'll try to actually write a few summaries later, but after "Mr. Irrelevant" is selected, it's nappy time! Hope everyone had a great weekend -- I've really enjoyed reading all your comments! -Robyn

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

Wonderful pictures, Robyn.

Looks like a great place for a vacation. And Claire's little room, how cute... How far is she from the Resort?

Enjoy your time away...

Hilton Head is a GREAT place for a vacation... you have chosen wisely! My 'rents own a condo down there next to the beach, and it's always a good time.

My step dad used to own a condo on Hilton Head. I heard its gorgeous down there! I hope Todd brought his golf clubs. =]

Different city, same region. :)

The resort looks nice. Maybe if I ever go on vacation again, I'll just drive up the road.

Disney's been trying to build a mini-resort/mini-theme park/travel center over in Hardeeville to compliment the resort. I wish they would get a mini-theme park; it would be nice to have. Haven't heard news on it in a while.

Enjoy the island and the Low Country.

I'm so jealous, Robyn. I'm such a Disneyphile. Hope you continue to have a great time.

I'm with AntGrad. While I'm not happy about the "business end" of some of their dealings, I've loved Walt since the first time I saw Steamboat Willie. I entertained notions of becoming an animator with them until they told me my drawings were "too realistic". *sniffle*.

Robyn, would you mind terribly if I snagged that wood balcony shot when you upload a higher res version? I'm working on revolving desktop backgrounds for myself and I find that shot oso soothing...

One of these days I'll actually get to see Savannah itself instead of Poole, GA and the airport. I've got some longer overnights next month so I'll have to take a cab downtown.
Until then I'll just have to remain jealous of your pics!
