Day 3 -Wednesday-
Drama at the Beach
So off to the ocean we go. Leaving Chattanooga was still going to be a five hour drive. Word of warning. Don't drink your green herb shake when you head off on the highway. Not long after our driving began we had to find a restroom pronto.
We have a good day driving. Praise Jesus for DVD players in the van. Aiden has not decided to use the van for napping much to my dismay. Other than having to pull over for Corbin to pee in a bush in Atlanta because we just couldn't make it in time, and eating lunch at Chick-fil-a only to notice the McDonald play land across the street we had a very uneventful drive down. We arrive in Hilton Head Island around 5ish. Not till I booked our two night three day trip did I know it was part of a time share presentation. Go figure. We got this trip when we went on the free time share presentation in Branson, MO. Anyway they had planned for us to be in a meeting the next day right at 12p. What dumb dumbs.
Hilton Head is so beautiful. All of the buildings have been designed to blend in with nature having this tan sandstone exterior. So all of the colors we come to associate with fast food chains and gas stations were not there. They all blended. And the signs were all on the ground in sandblasted muted colors. Very different. It was pretty, but difficult to find where things were.
After checking into our suite. Park Lane Suites was gorgeous, our room came right out to the pool and had a little kitchenette inside.
We headed off to have an evening at the beach then dinner.
Perfect temperatures. A little chilly with the sun going down, but kids rarely recognize such trivial things.
Corbin is not the kind of kid that lets owies and falls bother him. He doesn't cry very often and definitely not very long. So I know this really hurt. Poor guy.
Our first day in paradise was a little lacking for Corbin.
