We took a day trip to Charleston, SC a couple Saturdays ago. It was a chance to show Francesca how close we live to the beach and a sort of last hooray before baby number two arrives. Still waiting on that one ...
We left the house around eight and got there around twelve. The trip is normally only three hours, but crazy traffic happens during the summer and especially on Fourth of July weekend. We didn't allow it to dampen our spirits too much and after driving around we found a free parking spot right next to a beach entrance. Score!
It was a beautiful super sunny day with huge cotton clouds filling the sky and the water was the perfect temperature. We set up camp and waded right in, cut into watermelon, dug holes and enjoyed the vitamin D that seemed to lift everyone's spirits.
We were content to leave several hours later, our ocean tanks full. After several attempts to find places to change we headed into Charleston and ate at our favorite restaurant, Hyman's and then took a jaunt around the City Market. Having had enough of the humid heat we packed up around 6:30 and made the shorter trip home. It was a lovely day and I'm so glad we did it!
