We are in Hilton Head and having a wonderful time.
The word for the first two days of our trip was traffic...but since then, things have been looking up.
We went out to Harbour Town yesterday to walk around and get acquainted with this sleeply little part of the island.
There was this great little Trolley that drove us right out to the end of the island.
We walked the steps of the lighthouse and from the top saw a sweet little beach with thousands of shells.
Of course, we had to head right down there.
Well...as we were beach combing...I got a little mud on my shoes...so I stopped to walk out to the water and wash off.
It was a little marshy...and the going was slow...but I perservered.
Just as I was about to each the water's edge...I hit a boggy patch and sunk right into the mud...about mid calf.
egads...it was gross.
As I continued to sink...I had visions of emergency personnel being called out to rescue me...you know, with like a crane. lol!
So...I decided I had better get out of there and fast.
As I worked to get unstuck...I couldn't lift my feet out. Finlly, in desperation -- I slipped out of my shoes, pulled my feet free and moved to safer ground.
As I turned around to see where my shoes were...the holes in the marshy sand had already filled over. There was no sign that I had even been there.
I didn't really want to walk all over town without shoes...so I went to see if I could buy new pair.
The only shop to even sell flip flops was asking $48.00.
For flip flops.
Are you kidding?
So off we went to catch the Trolley back to our car...without shoes.
Some of you may leave your heart when you go on vacation.
But not me.
I leave my shoes.
p.s. No...no photos.
