Haint Paint, Ocean Water and the South Carolina Flag

I’ve pulled an old writer’s trick out of the hat. Topic is my favorite color. This color also ties in terrific with Spinnaker Resorts and Hilton Head Island too! 

Yes, blue is my favorite color. It’s the hue of my eyes, unique in my family. My lone sibling and both parents have brown eyes. I love royal blue, blue-gray, turquoise blue, denim blue, baby blue and navy blue. Blue is the color of tranquility. It’s the color of the ocean as it crashes ashore. The sky is blue on a hot summer day. The state flag of South Carolina flies bold in indigo. Blue is also how I feel when too many days lapse since I’ve walked beside the ocean’s edge. See below my “blue” findings on Hilton Head Island. What are yours?
