Spring Training

While large swatches of the country shivered, Hilton Head was busting out all over
April 22, 2007

Hilton Head Island is where golf goes to get over its Masters hangover, but last week's Heritage also offered the chance to revel in some much-needed sunshine, at least until Sunday. For six days, and again on Monday, the balmy island felt like spring break for adults, at which a bike ride on the beach or a walk through fields exploding with wildflowers always beckoned. For a chilly nation still awaiting first bloom, nothing could be more appealing.
