Shortly after these idyllic photos were taken (and I say idyllic because we had the entire beach to ourselves) I had a little bike accident.
Actually, it wasn't so little.
Some loose sand, a sidewalk under construction, and I hit the asphalt in the most spectacular crash.
It was so spectacular that a car pulled over and (to my complete and total embarrassment) four people rushed out to see if I was okay. Everyone agreed it was a miracle I didn't a) break a bone, or b) need to be carried to the ER for some stitches.
But I was a sight to behold with a shoulder scraped raw, a bloody (and swollen) knee, shin, and left ankle, and a bloody (and puffy) left eyelid.
We're now watching the Masters on television and everyone keeps looking at me and saying things like "gross" and "your shoulder is still bleeding." Niiiice. Anyway, following the tournament we were going to bike to Yo Addiction! for some frozen yogurt, but our plans have changed.
We'll be driving, instead.

It's a paradoxical expression, but a whole lotta nothin' is exactly what we've been doing while vacationing on Hilton Head.
Well, we're doing something -- 10 mile bike rides, eating, sleeping, exploring, napping -- and technically, even sitting and breathing is doing something, but ultimately there isn't much to account for our time.
We eat when we're hungry, sleep when we're tired, get up with the sun and go to bed with the moon. We laugh, tease, lounge, talk ... or not talk.
We do nothing except surrender to the sun, sand, and sea breeze ... a whole lotta nothin' that rejuvenates mind, body and spirit.
Which, in the end, is a whole lotta somethin'.

Why am I blogging on vacation?
I am an early riser (6 a.m.), and since everyone else is still asleep (zonked!) I'm sitting here with a cup of hot coffee and the window open to watch the sunrise. My favorite time of day.
Why did we go to Wal-Mart last night?
It wasn't because SOMEONE (maybe me, maybe Joe) forgot to pack the beach bag. It was because SOMEONE (definitely not me) forgot to pack necessities (like ... underwear). So. Wal-Mart. It's no secret that SOMEONE (definitely me) hates Wal-Mart, and after last night EVERYBODY (else) agrees with me.
What is it about a spiral staircase?
Rapunzel. Romeo and Juliet. A Pirate's Lair. Jono and Timo's hideout.
Favorite thing about Hilton Head?
The fact that you can bike for miles and miles and miles ....
Plans for today?
None. We're on vacation (and that includes my hair).
