spanish moss charleston, south carolina

our trip to charleston (kiawah island to be specific) went mostly like this...

beach. family. shrimp. grits. shrimp and grits. bike rides. spanish moss. okra. fried green tomatoes. so. many. peaches. fruit flies. watermelon. humidity. crab cakes. sunscreen. mosquitoes. nieces and nephews.

ed got stung by a jellyfish, not once, but THRICE. perhaps you heard his profanities from new york city? i wore this on the beach every day and if you make specific hand motions from a distance the resemblance to a NFL referee is uncanny.

charleston laid on the charm nearly as thick as the humidity. may i suggest you read the rest of this post with a drawl for the full effect.

honestly, i could give or take the beach. bike rides under the spanish moss were my favorite.

the whole gang stayed in a beach house on kiawah island, just a bike ride from the ocean. kiawah is known for their golf course and i can certainly vouch for it's gorgeousness. though i know nothing about it specifically except that we veered off the bike path and onto the course at some point.

Looks like an amazing trip! I love the picture of you two at the end of the post- pictures of Brian and I usually look like that as well; I am always laughing at him!

Beautiful photos. I've always wanted to make my way to South Carolina. So different than up North. The photo of the two of you is just the cutest! And that red dress, I love it! Where is it from?

thank you! ace and jig.

This looks like heaven. But I'd skip the jellyfish stings. Add it to the top of the list of reasons why bike rides beneath Spanish moss beat the beach.

How fun! I love Charleston. It is so quaint and beautiful. We also went for bike rides under the trees, but we lucked out and found a beach that you are able to bike on! It was amazing to bike on sand!

rebecca said...

yes! ace and jig.

My brother-in-law and sister-in-law live in North Carolina and the love to travel to Charleston, SC for vacation. They always rave about it. I can't wait to visit one day. Your pictures look great!

that last shot of you guys is a stunnah.

Rebeka said...

You are seriously the cutest. I love the last picture of you and Ed.

Your vacation sounds so relaxing and magical, even though I would have to disagree, beach > bike rides every day!
