boy.....a week sure goes by quickly when on the beach!
this year found us returning to sullivans island
it did not disappoint
those are some pretty ominous clouds in the backgroud
doesn't look much like vacations skies does it?
the clouds did pass as they so often do in the south
the weather prediction for the week showed
only two days of rain...yeah!
sullivans island is complete
a few restaurants & a coffee shop
a art gallery
a gas station
and that's about it!
it's quiet & quaint
just what we like in our home away from home
you need only cross the draw bridge in to mount pleasant
and they have every thing one could think of
we crossed several times to eat at our favorite place
page's okra grill.....yummmmmmm
the hubs & i both love to eat there for breakfast
he loves their pancakes
i love their shrimp & grits
creamy, shrimpy, spicy southern goodness
(people do look at you with wonderment on their face when you take pictures of your food..lol)
if you like
southern food & hospitality
you'll find it at page's
and speaking of food....
we found the best farmers market!
i have never seen such pretty berries & so big!!!!
we enjoyed some of those purple potato's for last nights dinner
we snacked on loads of freshness during our stay
when we weren't eating, we spent much of our time walking the shoreline
collecting sea shells by the sea shore
we found some pretty shells, but the hubs.....now he found some beauties!
we brought these home along with lots of little treasures
they are all soaking in a bath of soapy bleachy water
as they are pretty stinky!
we do not make but a few plans while on vacation
we're both content to spend our days at the beach
but we did take advantage of one of the cooler, rainy days & headed
across the bridge to charleston
to take in all the local beauty that charleston is known for
awwwwwww this bridge.....i'm so thankful to have the hubs drive me around these islands
i've never driven across it...i can barely look out the window....or for that matter....... breath
my stomach is in knots, my palms are sweaty & i'm pretty sure my heart stops beating
(a little dramatic thinks the hubs...lol)
i feel such relief when we've made it across
silly i know....but hey...bridges fall!
once across the death defying bridge
charleston has the most beautiful homes
many of them have with gates to match
so much so, there is a jewelry line fashioned after the gates
charleston has much to offer!
a short walk to the battery
and you'll see beautiful homes, gardens & gates
hahaha...i love this cute little couple
i would love to live in either of these houses
a girl can dream can't she!
all in all
we had a wonderful trip with weather to match
thanks south carolina for all your hospitality!
until next year
