Triathlon (just kidding. . . kind of. . .)

We started the day a bit late, but accidentally managed to fit in our own mini triathlon :) First up was renting bikes at our hotel and biking around the island. . .  

This sign made me smile. . .

and this view made me see why a sign was there in the first place!

We viewed this less-exciting, though just-as-photo-worthy animal. . . 

Parked all five of our green bicycles for lunch in Sea Pines. . .  


And a little swinging. . . 

After biking back to the hotel (which took much longer than we expected- went on a different path- were glad the lunch we ate was light :), we went swimming. . . 

We took a dip in the indoor pool and hot tub, then we walked over to the beach. . .

Hello overcast sky and gray ocean. . .



Saw a beautiful sandcastle. . .

Observed a bird party. . . 


Enjoyed splashing- 


And spied a boat rocking in the waves-


By this time, we were tired. But we had already reserved an hour at a tennis court. So we changed out of our wet suits in the hotel room, then walked across the street and ran around the tennis court hitting and chasing balls-

Thus went our day 3 of vacation, day 2 of enjoying the beach (and taking an exorbitant number of ocean pictures :), and day 1 of waking up on Hilton Head Island. Looking forward to where our next steps will lead. . .
