Then this morning we started at 10:00 when Rheagan played for Stuart Elementary and won. We were back there at 3:00 for another game that they also won. ( I had a couple of picutres to put on here, but they wouldn't upload...maybe tomorrow.)
We then went to Lee University to watch the women lose and the men win against Shorter College. That's enough basketball for awhile.

Many of the schools in the area are closed today due to the cold weather(including ours)...I know...kids in cold areas go outside for recess in this dry, sunny days!
This afternoon we will be driving to Cumberland County for high school basketball games. Thank goodness there is no precipitation in the forecast.

Tonight it's supposed to get down to 10 with a high tomorrow of 29.
Friday night it should get down to 14 and should start a slight warm up on Sat. It will get about freezing.
It's time to drip the outside faucets and open the cabinet door in the kitchen! An extra quilt from Mike's grandmother will go on the bed.
I know that this isn't cold for many of you, but for some of us...it's COLD!

We came back and were planning on going for a bike ride but it was a little too windy and cool, so Becky and I wimped out and Mike and David went on their final ball hunt.
A total of 110 golf balls! We may never have to buy another golf ball.
This has been a wonderful time with family and friends as well as a time for rest and relaxation. We'll head home tomorrow and get back to "normal" activities.

We then drove to the Charles Pinckney historic site. He was a native of South Carolina and was a signer of the Declaration of Independence. The historic site is his home outside of Charleston.
Next we drove to Sullivan Island, the site most slaves landed in America. Interesting fact: of all the African natives delivered to be a slave, only about 5% came to the US. Also on this island is the armaments that protected the harbor of Charleston from the Civil War thru WWII. During the Civil War, it was Ft. Moultrie that protected the harbor, during WWI some additional batteries were added and then the additional batteries were updated for WWII. also on this island is the newest light house in America.
The day ended with a BBQ dinner before we drove back to Hilton Head.

We then all rode to South Beach to eat at the Salty Dog, but when we got there we learned that they were closed until Feb. 1 for refurbishing. So we ate outside at The Wreck of the Salty Dog and had a great meal. After the ride back to the condo, we spent the rest of the afternoon reading, being on the computer, etc.Supper in the condo consisted of soup and snacking. Then it was time for the Fiesta Bowl.

It was a beautiful, sunny afternoon to be outside. As we were riding, we saw anhinga, tricolored heron, great blue heron, hooded merganser, along with several alligators.We also walked on the beach, went to the Harbour Town Golf Links and went out on the 18th green.
We came back and had cereal or soup for supper.

But I did take a picture of a Great Blue Heron as he was "fishing" in a pond on the course.
Tonight the Chaffins drove over to stay a few days with us, and we were joined at dinner by Linda and McKamy at a Mexican restaurant. We came back to the condo to watch Peyton and then hit the bed.
