Hilton Head Island, South Carolina

Today we visited Hilton Head Island to bicycle some of the Island's nearly 50 miles of public pathways and nature trails.

First we tried the beach...fun but hard work.

We found some wildlife on the beach. Lots of lots of jellyfish.

We started our bicycle ride on Hilton Head's Pathways at Chaplin Park.

The public trails often look like this...nice and shady.

They often have furry creatures hopping around on them too.

The trail we were on led us to this skate park where Marlon demonstrated some skateboarding maneuvers.

Doug could barely stand on this rail in shoes...let alone on a skateboard.

Our trail took us up the Cross Island Parkway, a toll bridge, right beside the traffic.

A view of Broad Creek as we stop on the bridge.

After about 18 miles, it's time for a drink.

We found some more wildlife along the pathway who agreed to pose long enough for a picture...
