Hilton Head 2008

We took Dex for a walk, but being as he is not an outdoorsy type of fella, we had to make frequent water breaks.

He LOVES his portable canvas bowl. His favorite thing is to plop down next to it and bury his whole face in it until every drop of water has been consumed.

I don't know who this dog is, but it cracks me up!! That face!

Walkin the dawg.

He is so lazy when he goes for walks, and will often sit himself down on the sidewalk and refuse to move!

Our view of the marsh at dinner that night

Old Oyster Factory, where we ate. My personal favorite from all of our meals there.

Readin' the menu.

Two minutes after this shot was taken, I returned to the car to get my sunglasses.

Hushpuppies! I hadn't eaten all day so when there was actual food put on our table, I was pretty excited.

These scallops were divine, and don't even get me started on the sauce. Omg.

Self portrait outside in the good light before leaving.

Cool statue at Shelter Cove, where we hung out for a couple of hours after dinner

Matt being silly.

Coldstone for dessert. That has peanut butter ice cream, swirls of real peanut butter, chocolate syrup, and crushed up peanut butter cups. Mmmmmmmmm.

After dinner, we headed down to the beach just after the sun set.

My beach hair is not the prettiest.

But the dusk light? Oh my lord..

Dexter's evening treat was a fresh rawhide. He's giving daddy his best "pls don't take this from me" look.

Trying to come up with a plan for the remaining days.

Our hotel wasn't the greatest. But it was relatively cheap, pet-friendly, and within walking distance to the beach, so what else could we ask for? We did like to make fun of its 1970's decor and "stationery" that lacked any kind of hotel logo, so we made our own.

This is tabby, a type of foundation made using sea shells. This was from the crumbling ruins of an old house. Very, very cool stuff.

One reason I love HIlton Head Island so much.. there's more oak trees and Spanish Moss than there are palm trees! It feels like Savannah!

When you wave at these macaws.. they wave back!!
