Yesterday was the first day of the annual Heritage Golf Tournament. Ray and I traditionally get tickets, and went up on the first day – just to scope it all out to see what would be there, check out the merchandise tent, have some lunch, and take photos. Cameras are only permitted prior to the actual beginning of the tournament on Thusday, so yesterday and Wednesday are my only chances. (I am not going up today). Not much was happening at the tournament itself, so most of my photos were of Harbourtown, as one walks through this “tourist town” to get to the Harbourtown clubhouse, where one enters the tournament. There are lots of shops, the harbor is full of yachts, the Harbourtown Lighthouse stands above, and of course condos surround it all.  So – today’s photo will be from our walk to the tournament. I hope that I get photos inside the tournament on Wednesday.

1. Pa-li-ne – yacht – probably the largest yacht moored there. For some reason I’ve gotten a lot of hits on this blog using the search word “Pa-li-ne Hilton Head” – so this yacht has some kind of interest – though I am clueless as to why! I know nothing about it, except that it’s huge!

Today Ray went up to the tournament to work at the Rotary concession booth, so I decided to stay home. Today’s photo is an alligator in our lagoon. As I was going outside to check on the Great Blue Heron nest, I heard this splash not too far from me — a young alligator (he’s not all that long) splashed back into the lagoon from where he was sunning on the bank. Alligators are to be taken very seriously. Yet — they have just as much fear of us as we do of them. He could sense my movements – even from the distance I was – and moved away.
