Welcome back ya’ll.
Hope you’re having a happy 2012. For now, I need to backtrack to the day before the New Year. Sorry there aren’t more pictures but the good ones were taken on regular cameras and we don’t have the cords to put them on the computer.
The regular golfing foursome golfed Hilton Head National and had a grand ol’ time.
As for the others, they hung out and recovered from the previous night out. As for Johnny and I, we decided to go kayaking. Unofrtunately, I don’t have any pictures from that because I took my waterproof camera and not my iPhone. We did a 2 hour tour that was a loop of some of the canals through Palmetto Dunes. We shared a two person kayak and bickered a lot due to my fear of gators and his dream to see a gator. It’s not that I don’t want to see a gator, it’s that being in a small tipy kayak is not my first choice for an ecounter.
Later that night, Jane made us a delicious spread of orderves and we played, yes again, mexican train. We got all dolled up and headed over to Mrs. Rouses’, an island local whose in her early seventees and just happens to own a multi million dollar estate. When we showed up, she was dressed in a gold sequin dress, and thrilled at the fact that we brought her over Johnny and Brad as “presents.” She was a blast to be with and we had a great time.
At about 10:30 we got back on the road and headed to the Electric Piano. It is one of the most popular bars in Hilton Head, and although had a more “mature” crowd, we all managed to have a bllllasst. There was a band on stage made up two large Southerners who totally rocked out.
And, surprise surprise, some of us decided to get up on stage and rock on.
It was a party that carried on until the wee hours of the morning, and us Canadian’s closed the bar, welcoming 2012 qith smiles, dancing, songs and lots of laughs.
Welcome 2012 🙂
(PS. I am now going to be a day behind. Until next time…)
