A Weekend Getaway for the Parents-to-Be

One of our favorite places to visit 
while in Hilton Head is Bluffton, SC.
My baby girl and her mister had their last 
little getaway before the arrival of
Harper Elizabeth Grant.

The bluff is known for 
The Church of the Cross.  

This photo was taken two years ago
on our annual beach trip.

This is the view from the inside.

The trees around the bluff are magnificent!

This was their little cottage for the weekend. 

The cottage lies on the same property as the main house
where they had breakfast the next morning. 

The back steps lead to the dock

where they sat and enjoyed coffee and a view.

I just love a cozy, little kitchen in a cabin. 

Although the furnishings did not 
exactly fit the era of the home, 
I think they were comfy and cozy 
as a cottage should be. 

If it were mine, I would paint the planked walls
and everything would be white, shabby chiccy.

The shower and the claw-foot tub has
the character of the old and the convenience of the new.

The gentlemen of the home has his own little workshop in the back. 

The last day was spent sight-seeing
in Savannah

and a walk on the beach at HHI.

This is the view of the river from their cottage.

I sure have enjoyed some good family time.
The first shower for Harper Elizabeth is in two weeks!
Can hardly wait to see all the pretties in pink. 

They also toured the new Southern Living Idea Home 2014
Palmetto Bluff, South Carolina.
No Cameras Allowed!

See above what they saw.  

Have a Wonderful Week,
