Movin' right along...
Finally got the "people" photos from the Hilton Head Island segment of our vacation up at Shutterblog. And in case you want to see more photos of the rooms at Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort, you can find those here.

Now all I have left to add are three days of Hilton Head Island "places" photos. Whew!

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

Is that place not Too rich? My wife and I went there for our Honeymoon and decided Tybee Island would have been much better. We could have at least afforded to breath on Tybee Island.

Did you see any of the ZR-1 Corvette Police Cruisers on the island?

Well you have to consider we live in a "resort area" anyway, so we're used to "too rich" pricing after 7 years in Tampa Bay unfortunately.

That said, Disney gives you a booklet with the local restaurant menus in it and there were very few choices under $20/meal. Needless to say, we passed -- and our food choices consisted of Atlanta Bread Company, Sonic, and one night out at the Hilton Head Island Brewing Company. Their Kickin' Karribean wings were the best ones I've ever eaten! Since our room had a kitchenette in it, we ate our breakfasts and lunches in the room as well -- which helped keep it affordable.

When they wanted $5/each to see the lighthouse on the island that isn't even a real lighthouse, that was only one of several "as-if's".

Yea, we stayed in Sea Pines where the lighthouse is. It cost us 35 bucks a piece to get the "ruin" tour. An old plantation home in the "reserve" where only one walll actually survive. There weren't any other ruins.

I guess if you have the money to afford that place, 35 bucks is petty cash.

One very nice thing about Disney...a lot of the tours (beach nature walk, my favorite part of the vacation -- we learned so much -- and "secrets of the marsh") were free as part of your stay. The only one we wanted to go on that was pay, and ultimately didn't since we can do it here cheaper, was the dolphin tour for $50.

We went on the Dolphin tour. Know what we saw?
The rich people's houses on the beach, A private Island, Some crabs in the water,The island where that old slave culture is, but NO dolphins!

We wanted to see the seals but didn't get the chance.
