Charleston Snapshots

Screen shot 2014-06-23 at 6.53.19 PM

Most people’s idea of a vacation is my idea of a nightmare. Where normal humans like to “kick back” and “relax” I like to fill every second of my day with assorted activities and explorations. The stuff I like to do almost always involves some level of physical exertion including but not limited to miles and miles of walking, bike rentals and scaling large natural or manmade structures. In short, it is best for me to just travel alone.

Since no one in my family subscribes to my definition of vacation, I follow a “can’t beat ’em, join ’em” attitude on the road these days. So here’s a look at our fully un-action-packed weekend on Isle of Palms.

That silhouette shot of my brother’s family was a remake of a picture I took in the same place last year. Here they are side by side:

    Despite being forced to relax, hope you had a wonderful time! 🙂 I am so incredibly jealous. Need. Beach. NOW!

    Also, that pic of you with your niece (I think?) is adorable!

    • Katie Katie

      Thanks! Yep, that’s my niece!

    The Cooper River Bridge run is one the best vacations/runs/ideas. I went with a big group of girls and all the runners enter the bars at 10a after the run. A lot of people, but one of those things I encourage all to do once!

    • Katie Katie

      I REALLY want to

  3. Rachel Rachel

    I’ve done the CRBR three times – great experience. Do it!

    • Katie Katie

      Ahhhh NEED TO

  4. oh how fun! i’ve always wanted to visit charleston and the summer sounds like the perfect time!

  5. Britt Britt

    What happened to the second dog..? 🙁

    • Katie Katie

      She just didn’t come on vacation this year. Her name is Sola and they still have her. They have four total, but Scout was the only one at the beach for this trip.
