We were at our new campground at Mayport Naval Station and ready to drive to Virginia Beach in a day.
Pam saw on FaceBook that friends Steve and Therressa had been in Hilton Head SC. She thought we might be able to stop along the route to Virginia Beach and have a late lunch or early dinner with them if they were still there.
Sure enough, they were there for a few more days. And not only that, they invited us to stay at their space bedroom in the condo they were renting!
We decided 'Why Not?' and made it to Hilton Head in time for lunch. They suggested a restaurant they liked - The Black Marlin - and it turned out to get a great choice. And -- they had a coupon book with 'Buy One Get One - BOGO' for it, so it was even a bargain.
We have been to Hilton Head a couple of times but we must have missed the main area. They were staying in a development called The Shipyard in a condo that was on the golf course. Like a lot of other places in the area, there were miles and miles of bike paths on the property.
And -- each condo unit had a shed with 2 adult bicycles. No need to rent any. The place itself was exceptional. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, fully furnished including kitchen and appliances and dishes. Very nice. Therressa was in the travel industry for years and found a deal online. Under $350 for a week!
After lunch, we drove around the island.
First stop was Cligny Beach
Once again we were able to use our BOGO coupons and ended up at the Skull Creek Boathouse. Another fantastic seafood meal. I opted for the shrimp and grits and thought it was very good.
Thanks for joining us on the Roadrunner Chronicles!
