Is everything crowded for Herritage week? Just was wondering what kind of wait to expect when going out to a restaurant.

Just got back from Hilton Head and heard someone asking about wait times next week at Old Oyster Factory (best meal I had by the way-coupon for a free dinner salad in the free coupon books on the island). They said before 5:30 there shouldn't be a wait, but after that time there will be. Some resturants take reservations. We always go to dinner by 5:30 and have never had to wait (and you can take advantage of the early bird specials).

Heritage week is a zoo. Thousands of cars coming in every morning and thousands leaving every afternoon...on top of the tourists staying here.

The cannon shot kicking off the tournament rattled my whole house this morning.

Plan on eating dinner very early this week. Also hunt for the north side locals spots that might be less crowded... Yummy House, Street Meet, Mi Tierra, Shrimp Michaels, Bella Italia, Mangiamo and Il Carpaccio are possibilites. Call ahead.

We ate at Hinoki tonight ($15 shrimp&chicken terriyaki early bird special) and it was pretty full at 6:20pm. That was on a night during a torrential downpour!

Good luck!

...and if you snuck on the 18th green late last week after they had installed the grandstands and media tent, and pointed your camera towards the sunset over Jeff's house, it would have looked like this...

Do you live on Daufuskie?

Yes, Cheryl and I and our two kids (ages 17 and 13) have lived at Haig Point on Daufuskie for 3 years as of May 20.

Think of Haig Point as an 1100 acre five star hotel with the Callibogue Sound as the driveway up to the front lawn. Valets take my groceries to my house. When I play golf, there's almost never anyone in front or behind me. Everybody waves and says hello when they pass by in their golf cart. It is a crowded day on the 3.5 mile Daufuskie Beach when you see more than 5 people the entire length. Some days the only tracks in the sand are the tire marks from the turtle watch ATV.

Prior to Daufuskie, we lived on Hilton Head full-time for 4 years from 2002-2006 and part time (every other weekend) from 1997-2002. We've been vacationing here since 1992.

Before we found Hilton Head we spent a lot of time in Wilmington NC (Wrightsville, Carolina and Kure Beach) and made several trips to Kiawah Island, Tybee and Edisto Island searching for the best place to buy a beach home.

When I was a kid growing up in SC, Myrtle Beach was the only beach vacation town in SC. I didn't like it much back then, and definitely not now.

Cheryl re-introduced me to the beach 21 years ago. Now look where we are!
