Where I stayed
Comfort Inn, Hilton Head Island
It wasn't far to Hilton Head Island and Richard managed to book a golf game at the Golden Bear Golf Club at Indigo Run. Although we got a room at the Comfort Inn it wasn't ready so Richard changed at the club and went golfing and I spent the rest of the day in the car visiting the beach, art galleries and shops.
Hilton Head is a beautiful destination and has some beautiful gated communities, many of which back onto golf courses. I got quite ticked off at the gates since some charged a fee to allow entrance and others made you re-direct a long way to get to where you wanted to go. And none of the maps indicated this! Nonetheless this is very atypical for the US - no big billboards, commercial malls are hidden behind trees and landscaping, there are traffic circles instead of lights, buildings do not exceed five stories etc. and I find it quite peaceful and charming.
We walked to the local plaza for dinner as we're both tired of researching every move.
