Fun Things To Do at Hilton Head

It’s that time of year again!!  The Hilton Head Hogbottoms are getting ready to head out east.

If you are looking for a good family vacation, Hilton Head is the place to go.  The beaches are clean and family-friendly.  The sign before entering the beach has all the rules and regulations and most people abide by them.  No alcohol is allowed on the beach, but there are some people that have it in cups or snuggies.  However, there are no drunks or couples lollygagging all over each other.  Just families having a good time.

Although we didn’t play miniature golf, there are several really neat places to go.  Pirate’s Island Cove is one of them.   Adventure Cove is another great one.

Bike rentals are a big thing because there are awesome bike roads for riding.  A person can go all over the place on a bicycle!

Renting sailboats, big-wheeled floating tricycles, jet skis, or opting to fly high with parasailing are all available.

The food is fantastic!!  And, of course, we always take the 45-minute trip into Savannah.  Good, good food there!

There are the sea tours for sighting dolphin or kayaking for a close look at the local sea life.

Rapunzel, Rapunzel, Let Down Your Hair!!

Popi and Gigi have been working hard on the castle for the grandgirls and grandboy when they all visit.  Kate and Ava, of course, visit often.  After all, they only live a couple of blocks away.  Finally, the big day came:  it was finished and ready for all sorts of characters to move into its welcoming sort-of walls.

Rapunzel awaits a tour of the castle while her lady-in-waiting tries out the swing.

The lady-in-waiting always goes first… unless Rapunzel throws a big, bawling fit.  Then the Queen, Gigi, must step in and tone down the impulsive pushiness of the bigger half of this pretend scenario.

Kate loves to pretend to be asleep.  Such a shame it’s always pretend.

Rapunzel is just so stinkin’ cute!!

You know, I may have the lady-in-waiting confused with the court jester.

Aw, yes she is the lady-in-waiting.  My only concern is waiting for what?!?!Rapunzel

Just as I suspected.  Our lady-in-waiting has ulterior motives!  And I’m fairly sure they involve knocking the fair Rapunzel off the bridge.  Run, fair maiden, run!!

There never is a very ladylike, princessly way to fall off the bottom of the slide.  But coming to Rapunzel’s aid, proving that she is all her name sets forth that she is, is our valiant lady-in-waiting to help the poor little maiden to victory.Rapunzel

Or maybe she’s just showing off the dirty arm.

Anyway… on to Popi’s next project!!   A roof for the deck!Rapunzel
