Just back from vacation in Hilton Head. The word of the week was alligators. We were in Hilton Head previously, ut it was at Christmastime, and it was much colder, so all of the alligators were hibernating.

Not last week. We had an alligator in our back swamp (we named him Beauchamps). We also saw them laying out in the sun as we walked through our complex. When we went to a nature area, we saw signs warning us that we were not allowed to harass or feed the alligators. The Audobon Preserve had one named Big Al – we didn’t see him on our visit.

We had a great time. Lots of walking in nature areas, ate at a lot of great restaurants (most very reasonably priced), and took trips to Savannah and Beaufort. The travel wasn’t bad -I’ve gotten used to wearing masks, so masking at the airport and on the planes wasn’t a burden. We remained safe for the week and had a great time.
