On the road again! Hilton Head Island!

Ann and Wynn both have Spring Break at the same time this year, and Scott had plenty of Delta SkyMiles (and an anniversary travel stipend), so we decided to escape winter in Minnesota for a little while.

We loved our vacation a couple years ago on Amelia Island, Florida, and wanted to see this part of the country again. Flights into Savannah, Georgia were a good deal, so we decided on nearby Hilton Head.

We left Saturday morning and will be here until Wednesday!
Leaving on a 35-degree rainy morning. Lots of Spring Break travelers in Minneapolis getting out of town - haven't ever seen so many widebody jets lined up at our home airport!

Digging into a Lunchables as we take off...

Having some lunch and taking a break in Atlanta at the new International Concourse - the rest of the airport is crowded & stressful but here quite relaxing.
Arriving at Savannah's airport - charming & small-town
"What are we waiting for? Let's go to the hotel!"
Hilton Head Island is about 45 minutes' drive from Savannah.  We found the hotel without much trouble and checked in easily. Nice sized room, and a balcony looking out on the ocean... 
And this is the view from our room!
Now we're finally on vacation.
