Happy Sunday all! I am super excited to say that we finally made it to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina and it is AMAZING! Seriously, there are very few places in life that you visit and think, hmmm, I could totally live here…..Hilton Head is one place like that for me. It is such a cute island town ~ I am IN LOVE and we have only just started exploring.
After sleeping in (something I rarely am able to do), we headed off to re-fuel at Starbuck’s. I could’ve ordered the 7 points+ Feta Wrap, but, I really wanted a scone.
So, I comprised ~ I got an Iced Latte with 1 pump Pumpkin Spice (1 points+) and a Blueberry Scone (13 points+).
I have always wanted to go to a Piggly Wiggly because I LOVE the name…Today, we finally had the chance and I totally geeked out when I realized they had Piggly Wiggly’s in South Carolina.
After stocking up on a few staples, we whipped up lunches for everyone. I couldn’t wait to try this Boar’s Head Honey Mustard.
REAL ingredients with fantastic stats.
I made a turkey, ham, swiss, pickle & baked sour cream & cheddar “chip” sandwich on Whole Wheat (7 points+)
Plus a few grapes that we all shared for dessert.
I snapped a few pictures to share last night of Time Share we are staying at on Hilton Head.
After lunch, we decided to take a walk to explore The Pool!
Then, the HUGE Lagoon that runs through the resort.
The Husband almost didn’t want to come here when he found out that there are alligators…it didn’t help he read all those “worse case” scenarios on line…..
Then again, neither did seeing this sign as we walked on the bridge LOL…..
There is actually a huge alligator that swims in the lagoon ~ I am totally going to try to get a picture of him before we go……
There were a ton of turtles swimming in the lagoon.
Look at the baby turtle!
He was just hanging out sunbathing like this for like a half hour.
Next up, we headed over to Harbor Town to check out the Lighthouse. I was SO EXCITED when I saw they have a Christmas Tree. We totally took our token annual Christmas Tree pick
As you walk out to the lighthouse, you see this huge outdoor theater next to a big Oak Tree.
The entire “beach” boardwalk is line with these bright red rocking chairs.
We were cracking up when we turned around to see The Husband and my dad in “deep” discussion about this statute.
“Out to Lunch!”
The fall colors on all the plants, bushes and trees are so vivid and absolutely beautiful.
Harbor Town is full of small quaint shops and a Lighthouse that you can see no matter where you stand.
Cheeeeeeeseeeee ~ nope, we totally didn’t plan on dressing alike lol.
As we walked along the pier there were more birds hanging out on the pier.
Little birds digging in the sand on the beach.
I LOVE how the water is so calm you can see the Lighthouse reflection in the water.
We went in the afternoon just so we could watch The sunset at the Lighthouse.
We just decided to pick a random place for dinner as we drove back and ended up at Nick’s Steak & Seafood. If you are Pittsburgh Steelers fan, this is the place for you!
The Husband and I shared their Surf & Turf Special ~ Garlic Grilled Shrimp, New York Steak, Garlic Smashed Red Potatoes & Crisp Green Beans. Since he was sharing with me, I didn’t worry as much about “healthifying” it by requesting a plain baked potato and no butter or oils on anything cooked.
Sometimes a little of the real deal is needed ~ especially when you are on vacation!
The steak was so amazing that it melted in your mouth with garlicky buttery deliciousness.
Tomorrow we head to Savannah, Georgia for a day trip! Thanks to everyone who shared their ideas on what to do on Facebook & Twitter.
If you have any MUST SEE’s I want to know ~ share away!
See ya’all later
