LDW in Charleston, SC

Posted In: charleston

What are the chances that we would plan our second trip to visit Rob’s parents in Charleston exactly one year from the last time we visited them there?!   I’m convinced a trip to Charleston is never a bad idea, although I much prefer flying!  This year because leave wasn’t approved until the last minute and Rob was scheduled on Friday, we made the nine hour drive to Charleston.  While it was worth the trip, let’s just say I don’t plan on doing that again for a LONG time!

We got into Charleston past midnight Friday night so we said our hellos and went straight to bed.  Saturday we woke up and headed to brunch at Page’s Okra Grill.  The weather all weekend was gorgeous so sitting outside with a carafe of mimosas sounded just perfect.  We did a little shopping and touring before heading home to watch college football.  Saturday night we did happy hour at Vendue’s rooftop bar (hard to believe our first time here was when we were moving to Pensacola!) and then dinner on King Street at Magnolia.

Sunday we rode to brunch in Rob’s parents’ golf cart right on Daniel Island at Honeybee Cafe.  We did a golf cart tour of Daniel Island and then headed to Holy City Brewery for an afternoon drink.  For dinner, we ate at FishHouse which was an awesome restaurant at Patriot’s Point that overlooked the USS Yorktown.

Monday came way too fast and we had another nine hour drive ahead of us.  Luckily, we left early in the morning to give ourselves time to stop.  We made a pitstop at Panera in Augusta, lunch and Trader Joe’s in Atlanta, and Whole Foods in Birmingham.  These stops made the trip much more manageable!

    Looks like you had a lot of fun! Great pictures.

  • All your dresses are SO cute!

  • You take the most fun weekend trips. Between Mac never being home and my having class on Saturdays, we don't get out much.

  • I love your braid!

    Ah Saturday classes would make things so tough! Our weeks are unpredictable but we try hard to have fun plans for the weekends to make the most of our time here!

    Thanks Kait! Braids are one of the few ways to survive this southern humidity 😉
