Susan's Favorite Photos (of Susan!)

These pictures are from my one-week stay in Hilton Head, South Carolina. I stayed at my weekly timeshare in both 1994 and 1996. I spent the whole week as Susan King. I did not bring any male clothes.

It was my 1996 vacation that I enjoyed the most. The main reason was that I joined the Internet in 1995 followed by joining a "crossdressing" message board. I found a group living in Hilton Head and began to communicate with them.

I left Atlanta traveling to Orlando on Thursday, May 23, 1996. I stopped by to visit my parents for a few days. My mother wanted to take me shopping to buy a few items for my vacation. On Friday, my mother took me to a local department store and we spent a couple of hours shopping for a few female summer outfits. It was so much fun and something I always wanted to do.

I left for Hilton Head, South Carolina, on Saturday May 25, 1996. On my way, I stopped at a nail salon and had a set of acrylic nails put on. It was the first time I had a set of nails. At first I felt apprehensive and the tech had to tell me to relax my hands. But she did such a great job and I enjoyed those nails all week.

Over the week, I met with a few other "crossdressers" who lived on the island. We had a great time shopping, having meals together and touring the island and the neighboring city of Savannah.

These pictures are from the first full day of my trip. One of the friends I met took a few picture of me. I loved the casual outfit. I bought a white hair band to hold my hair back and away from my face.
When I look at this picture, I find it interesting that I am wearing stockings during the warm Hilton Head weather.

I will always have fond memories of this vacation. I knew, after that trip that I wanted to transition.
Now I am finally transitioning. But I needed those past 20 years to build my business and raise my children
I would like to thank Stana for making some of those past 20 years easier by living through her experiences discussed in this blog.

Calling all girls! My open invitation to post your favorite photo along with the story behind it and the reason it is your favorite photo still stands, so don't be shy, send me your fave foto. ― Stana
