19 May 2017 Shelter Cove Marina, Hilton Head Island, SC
Yesterday, Thursday, was our last day on Hilton Head. We had 1 more restaurant to check off our list so we cycled to Hudson’s Seafood House on the Docks on Skull Creek. We lunched on their deck and the food was totally outstanding. As we were about to leave a very long sea creature swam up near the shore so all the diners sprang to their feet with cameras poised. It looked like a gator but they aren’t in salt water so must’ve been a croc…? Wonder what the interaction would be between it and dolphins?
What is it? Looks quite at home in salt water.

Loved our bicycle trip on these safe and dedicated trails. For the most part, they’re shaded making for a comfy ride. HHI’s got to rank among the top best and safest bicycling towns. As much as we enjoy HHI, the ONLY way I could live there is if we had a heliport. Traffic is horrendous and we inquired about proposals to remedy the issue and there are none. Many times we’d pass motorists on our bikes and quite a distance later, they’d catch up with us but they never progressed faster than we did.
A perfect ending to a magnificent month was to relax on our fly bridge last night sipping adult beverages and listening to The Headliners entertain for 3 hours. Lots of shagging happening. People-watching during this event is very engaging and most interesting.
This morning we bid adieu to our slip neighbors, Darah and Mike. They were delightful folks to live next to, in fact the entire dock was very enjoyable.
We’d hoped to get a picture of us, Neptune, and Kindred Spirit III in the background but it never pays to tarry. Had we not put it off.... Can barely see more than our enclosure and even though the tide is rising, it won't be high tide till 3 PM and we've gotta make tracks so that we don't hit (not literally) the low spots.
We included a few shots of the wake we left as we departed. Love Shelter Cove but sure feels and sounds good to feel the water moving beneath our hull again as we are Charleston/Mt. bound. When I think of HHI, only Shelter Cove comes to mind. Why go any place else---shopping, dining...it's all right there.

Love the wind in my face and tousled hair. Feels blissful.
