As promised the drive up to Hilton Head Island was a decidedly rainy one, and it didn’t let up once we arrived in town.
Our first destination once we arrived was Ela’s where we planned to try out their signature ‘green eggs & ham’ for brunch.
Before I show you a picture of the dish I’ve just mentioned, I thought I’d show you a bit of the restaurant itself. It’s made up of three levels. The first is the bar and main dining area, including a wrap around porch that we would have opted for if the weather had been so cold and damp. The second we could see from our table, and the third is a small area in the ‘crows nest.’
Now as promised here is the ‘green eggs & ham.’
It was a bit harder to get the egg out of the avocado’s than we originally thought, but it was still good.
On the way out I took a snap of this boat ‘True Grits’ that was docked outside. I thought it was appropriate given this is the South. (Even though grits are not my thing.)
Next we headed over to pick up the passes we needed to get into Harbour Town. (Since it’s a gated community you either need a multiple day pass if you’re staying in Harbour Town or a $6 day pass if you just want to have a look around and check out the beach club or rent a bike to see what the area has to offer.
Note: Bike riding is a huge thing on the Island. It doesn’t matter if it’s raining or not there was always a group of people riding around.
The thing I noticed right away was the staff is largely from the UK. I absolutely loved that fact and it made it feel more homey to me. The staff is kind, helpful and constantly went above and beyond to make sure our stay was enjoyable.
Here’s a quick video of the room.
Now for a few pictures…
Since we were exhausted at this point we decided to order up room service and enjoy one of the movies I’d brought.
Check out the yumminess below.
Stay tuned for Day 2!
