March 19, 2013 Day 312
Shelter Cove Marina
Hilton Head Island, SC
Total miles to date: 5252.1

We had a big thunderstorm late last night so it was a relief to have a bright sunny day in the low 70’s!  We are sure the golfers were out in force.  We know the bicyclists were!

We picked up our rental car at 11:00 and drove around much of the island.  There is one main road that runs through the island and resort communities with condos and golf courses that are tucked around it.  Sometimes the shops are hard to see because of trees and signage restrictions.  (There is a Walmart – but it does not have big blue letters!)

We also had errands to run: Publix (Joyce will miss that store when we get farther north!) and West Marine (yes, we just needed two items – and yes, we walked down every aisle – it is a guy thing!)

We returned to the boat and put things away, then had dinner on board.  Bill continues to plot our course through the Carolinas in his spare time.

No big plans tomorrow – just trying to get the boat ready for company!
