Harbour Town

I love playing tourist when family visits. I get to look at Hilton Head with a different perspective than that of the routine, day-to-day happenings.

Spending the day and evening in Sea Pines Plantation, we had the opportunity to enjoy the sun setting around the famous red & white striped lighthouse in Harbour Town. It is quite a view and a must see when visiting Hilton Head Island.

Dolphin Encounter

While taking a leisurely boat ride on Broad Creek, Hilton Head Island a resident Atlantic Bottle-nosed Dolphin (Tursiops truncates) swam up to the boat. These incredible creatures are abundant in the coastal waters of Hilton Head and tend to be very friendly; often they are looking for food. It is against the law to feed or harass the dolphins or any other wildlife – although it is very hard not to jump in and “play” with them!
