Shadow's Home here at Hilton Head!

Her little hide away.

She is a beautiful Golden Retriever

My Wordless Wednesday pictures are from my vacation this week. We have really enjoyed visiting Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort @ Hilton Head Island in South Carolina. We love this seaside, laid back DVC resort because there are a bunch of family activities here. From the un-birthday parties, BBQ's, kayaking, swimming and smores by the fire pit. This is the 3rd DVC resort;  it opened in March of 1996.

One great benefit to being out in the country, is getting to know the resort's mascot, a dog named Shadow. A little more about Shadow, not only is she the mascot at the resort, she lives here too. Her handler takes her for walks around the resort and the guests are allowed to follow along. They pet and give her lots of love while he tells stories of the culture here in South Carolina.  As far as I know Shadow is the only Disney resort live-in mascot.

Thanks for stopping by :-), Hope you enjoyed getting to know Shadow, she is so sweet and it's one of the reasons our family loves to come back to Disney's Hilton Head resort. If you have any questions about Shadow, just let me know..
