Painting Like Georgia at Hilton Head and More

Even without ideal weather, a week on Hilton Head Island can be special. The rain wiped out the tennis welcome event as well as the pro exhibition. But my "Painting Like Georgia" workshop at the Art Academy went well, and I loved being with the artists there. Our daughter flew her Mooney into the Hilton Head Airport; my sister and brother-in-law visited; and I discovered the Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn. It was a fun week.

 Have you ever returned home from a trip and wished you could have spent more time with each of the activities?

That's how I feel. I wish the artist workshop I taught had gone on for longer than three days.

What a great place for a workshop! Glad it went well despite the rain. And that family got to come in and see you.

I've never even been to Hilton Head.

When I visit a theme park, I always wish I could stay there longer and ride the coasters more times.
