Gratitude for Hilton Head

She could feel the ocean fall and rise / She saw its raging glory...

I remember it like it was yesterday, those sea-dog days spent south. There was that quantitative difference of "being away from it all," being free of distraction, work around the house, phone calls, etc...

A Hilton Head day begins with morning prayer or Mass, then a cigar on the balcony with the word processor/books for reading/writing purposes, joined to the stellar view, and a leisurely breakfast either at the condo or out on the town, then onward to beach about noon or 1pm. Read a bit then swim, bike, run in the afternoon (1pm-3pm). Then happy hours (3-6) followed by dinner followed by movie. Nice. I think I'm a European on the inside, wont to long vacations and such.
