I had been rushing around all week so I decided to take some time to myself to truly enjoy the environment. I wanted to embody the naturistic scenery of Hilton Head Island. I decided this weekend to take on the eco-adventure zip-lining tour. This thrilling tour had eight interconnected zip lines, with heights up to seventy-five feet. My feet dangled over the tree top canopies while I had breathtaking views of the marshlands of Broad Creek Waterway. The two suspension bridges tested my balance as I carefully had to cross them to get to the next zip line. While zipping through the trees I admired the larger than life, enchanting oak trees. I had aerial views of the lush landscape and the marshlands looked serene. This was truly the best way to appreciate the nature and wildlife. I am genuinely beginning to fall in love with this island.
This past weekend I had the opportunity to host an open house for Advisor, Beth Golde, on Callawassie Island, just a short thirty minutes from Hilton Head Island. The private island was immediately breathtaking as soon as I drove past the gate, finding waterfront views on both sides of the road leading to the island. After the open house Beth so kindly showed me around the neighborhood, herself being a member of the island community. She explained that Callawassie offered a very active lifestyle including golf courses, neighborhood pools, biking and walking trails, kayaking docks along the Colleton River leading out into the ocean, and historical sites such as the old Sugar Mill Ruins dating back to pre-revolutionary war. As she toured me around the island she pointed out almost everyone in the neighborhood has a dog, “you have to love dogs to be here." Along with their pets, the home owners Beth introduced me to were incredibly kind and interested in finding the six-degree separation between us. I met several people who oddly had some sort of tie back to Hudson, Ohio - my home town. Everyone’s eagerness to create conversation and find commonalities made me feel relaxed and almost at home. I greatly appreciate the mentorship and hospitality Beth treated me to last weekend.
