It all began with a stay at a timeshare on Hilton Head Island. While there about ten years ago we visited Sun City Hilton Head and loved the community, but never really thought we live there.
Fast forward to 2003 when our son Tony and his family moved to Charlotte, North Carolina. We began to make a seven-hour drive several times a year, and once when we were there, we went looking at model homes. While speaking to a sales rep we learned about a new "55 and better" community that was being planned in the Fort Mill area. Sun City Carolina Lakes!
We started driving by the site and watching the progress, but when the models opened, we weren't able to come down to see them right away. We read in the newspapers about the many people who came out to the grand opening, but we weren't able to come down the summer.
But then in late July, we came, visited the models, loved them, and bought our new home which wouldn't be ready until the fourth quarter of 2007.
Then back to Maryland to wait for 15 months.
