Hilton Head Island Beach

We’re on Hilton Head Island for a week of getting warm. We deserve it! Last week the entire house had the flu – I missed three days of work, and really should have stayed home on the fourth as well.

But here it is sunny and warm, and we have twelve miles of beach just steps from our door.

Mina has taken up beach dancing. As you’ll see, her little swimsuit bottom is too big – it expects a swim diaper between it and that teeny bum.

We’ve seen a lot of jellyfish stranded on the beach. Usually they’re just transparent blobs, but we caught this one in the act of getting stranded, so you can still see the shape and color. For reference, it was about the size of Mina’s head.

It’s really too cold to be in the water, but the kids just don’t care.
