4/50.- Hilton Head Island, Rush Hour on the Beach


Although I took this particular photo in January, the beach looks just as uncrowded in the summer months. How can that be, you might be asking. You see, the beach is so long that even where it is crowded, such as near hotels and public entries, just a few hundred yards or so away it can be practically deserted. A very popular public beach is by Coligny Plaza where there are lots of shops and restaurants. In January the temperatures are generally in the fifties and sixties Fahrenheit; not hot enough for swimming, but perfect for biking, golfing, playing tennis, etc. In the summer months, the weather is hot and humid and people jump into the ocean or swimming pools. Another place that is great to bike, apart from the miles of bike trails, is on the golf course. In the plantation of Palmetto Dunes, for example, you can bike on the golf courses before 7 a.m. and after 7 p.m. Smashing.
