May 2013: Editor's Note
Author: Maggie Washo
This month, I was a tourist in my own town. Over the course of a few weeks, I went to the RBC Heritage, spent the day fishing and took a day trip to Savannah to take photos for our upcoming travel column (Coming in June!). Sometimes I forget that people actually wait all year long to come here on vacation for a week. Shame on me for not taking the time to enjoy this area more often!
My month started with a CH2 fishing trip, hosted by Boathouse general manager Grant Kaple and local fisherman extraordinaire Collins Doughtie. We actually caught a few fish, although I’m not sure we’ll be entering any big contests anytime soon. You can read about our adventures on page 58.
The RBC Heritage was fun, as usual, in spite of a torrential downpour early Friday evening, which did not dampen anyone’s spirits. After a windy day of play on Sunday, Graeme McDowell defeated fellow U.S. Open champ Webb Simpson in an exciting sudden death playoff. We look forward to interviewing him for next year’s issue.
The month ended with a trip to Savannah to photograph “The Most Beautiful City in the USA.” True story. The sign says so. Check us out next month to read that story. You can “get away” for the weekend in just 45-minutes.
Now is the time to get out and explore—before the heat hits us square in the face next month. Send me an e-mail with a photo of how you “vacation” on Hilton Head Island, and we’ll print the submissions in our June issue.
Until next month…
