I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Mine was filled with working, cycling and a great run! More on running and workouts this week, today I am going to finish up our vacation!
After the longest day, the day before, B and I woke up bright and early excited to explore the city of Charleston a bit more.
We took a trolley into the city (our hotel was about 1 mile from historic district), but we wanted to take the cool looking trolley!
Once we arrived, we headed straight for the market, the day before the Market had already been closed and I was excited to get my shopping on!
After exploring the market we took to the streets and headed back down to the pier and the battery area. We love walking by the water and watching all the ships come and go, and feeling the nice breeze was a plus on such a humid and hot day!
By the time we had made it back into the city our legs were pretty tired and we decided to go on one of the carriage rides. You can walk around and read the signs about the old buildings but we wanted to know a few more things and thought the carriage ride would give us the extra information about the city.
Let me tell you, it certainly did not disappoint!
The tour started at noon and ended at 1:15! We paid $20 per person, and it was well worth that 40 bucks!
The guide talked about every little detail in Charleston, from the first settlers to what is currently happening with all of the historic buildings. We also went by the huge homes down by the shore and found out who owned what and how rich the families who first established in Charleston actually were!
We were both sad when the tour ended, but it also meant that it was time for lunch! We were STARVED! We literally went to the first place we saw once we stepped off the carriage! It was called the Charleston Crab Shack, and it was pretty tasty! I ordered the fish tacos (which were one of the best I have ever had!) and B ordered the crab cake sandwich, which he said was pretty good, but not as good as the fish and chips. 🙂
We had basically hit everything we wanted to see by 3 o’clock, so we decided to head to the beach! This time we wanted to explore Isle of Palms. This was my favorite beach, it was more family friendly and much more low-key. The island was pretty cute as well, with a lot of shops and fun places to eat.
For the next few hours we played in the waves, I took countless videos of B playing the ocean, and we just laid and relaxed on the beach. It was some of the best few hours!
As the sun began to set we started to realize how hungry we were, and quickly went back to get changed and head over to Folly Beach for some good food! We ate at, Folly Beach Crab Shack, kinda funny since we ate at another crab shack in the afternoon! I got the low country boil which included, sausage, crab legs, peel and eat shrimp, potatoes and corn. It was so much food! And B got the fish and chips, which once again, were not as good as the day before! 🙂
We ended our night with a walk on the beach! It was the perfect way to end our quick little vacation! It was a much-needed vacation, and we had so much fun! Yes it was disappointing about the law school, but everything happens for a reason!
