In 2020 Kate and I had planned our long-awaited trip to France. I was researching hotels and places to visit (beyond the obvious ones). Something happened to derail those plans – wait, I’m getting old and don’t always remember what happened… anyway, we did not go.

We finally decided that we would take a vacation this year – not to France but somewhere where we could visit friends. That also did not happen, so we arranged a November vacation back to Hilton Head, SC. Surely by November, the world would be getting back to normal. Hmm, I guess not.mOh well. I’m used to wearing masks a lot of my day, anyway.

So we’re in Hilton Head for the week. We’ll visit local attractions, take a day trip to Savannah, GA, and maybe take a day trip to Charleston, SC. I’ve been to both for conferences, but Kate has only visited Savannah for the day, and not even some of the cool places I found when I was there. We will hopefully have fun. We’re fully vaxed nad have even goten the booster shot, so with that and our masks we’ll be well-protected. Unsure whether there are any mask mandates in SC – I don’t think so, but we’ll still mask up in some places when we’re inside. We’re hoping for the best.
