We started off this particularly rainy day with breakfast in the downstairs dining room. If the weather had been less rainy and a little warmer we would have loved to have eaten outside, but the little dining area was very nice as well.
Here’s a video of the patio & new club house.
Now for the pool area.
Back up to the room for a bit. To check out the paper and give mum a chance to enjoy the cup of tea I made for her at the lobby tea station.
Time to go out and check out a few of the nearby shops…
Mum picked up some fibers @ Needlepoint Junction. I picked up a few shells @ Branches… We dropped in Java Burrito Company b/c we were curious about a place that sells both Burritos and coffee. Novel idea! The Karis Art Gallery featured art by it’s namesake as well as various area artists.
Now time to go to our lunch destination Charlie’s L’Etoile Verte.
View of our dining room and the one next to us.
Now onto check out the Italian Market and Michael Anthony’s Cucina Italiana.
One of the co-owners of the restaurant showed us up to the upstairs area where they have cooking classes.
We purchased the restaurants cookbook and the chef signed it for us. (Wish we could have met him in person!) I’ll share more about the cookbook etc in a future post on my foodie blog.) After our little culinary experience we headed over to Bluffton and saw one of the oldest churches in the area. It was built in 1854, but originally established in the late 1700’s.
Next we drove over to the other inn we’d considered staying at. This particular inn is located in the private community of Palmetto Bluff.
After a full day of driving, we headed back to the room.
Stay tuned for our final day on Hilton Head Island. ~theavidpen
