Around the House – Day 9 Part 2

As I said in my previous post, we had a rainstorm.  The outdoor photos in the video I am sharing today were taken before the rain began.

Enjoy my video of my of what we did at the house before leaving for the day.

Friday Morning Beach Walk – Day 9 Part 1

Once again, I took a walk on the beach on Friday morning of our trip.  Luckily I did it before the rain storm.

We had a rain storm on the last full day of us staying on the beach so that was a bummer.

Enjoy my video of my walk on the beach.

Have a magical day,

Date Night – Day 8 Part 4

Hubby and I wanted to go look for the sunset once again.  At first we were going to go back to Mt. Pleasant but changed our minds.  We ended up in downtown Folly Beach once again.

We stopped at Hubby’s favorite sandwich/ pizza place there – Wich Doctor.  He ended up getting himself some sort of pizza.

Then we were going to take photos from the bridge leading into Folly Beach.  There really wasn’t a sunset so we checked out the park before heading back to the beach house.

Beach Shenanigans – Day 8 Part 3

Before Hubby and I left for our sunset hunting date, we celebrated the Wee Ones and the Imaginative One’s birthdays by giving them gifts.  They both got new shirts from grandma and play poop from their cousins.

Afterwards, we went outside to find more sharks’ teeth.  My niece and nephew found lots of sharks’ teeth that afternoon so they wanted to show the boys how they found them.

I also wanted to get some photos of the boys jumping into the surf.  That did not go well.  They played more than allowing me to get a good photo.  Then the Wee One decided he needed to do cartwheels in the surf.

Enjoy my video from our shenanigans on the beach.

Join me next week for Hubby’s and my sunset hunting date.

Mount Pleasant – Day 8 Part 3

After we were done visiting Angel Oak, we headed over to Mount Pleasant.  Hubby wanted to do some geocaching while I wanted to visit Aldi.  The Aldi in Mount Pleasant is the only Aldi in the Charleston area.

I knew that Aldi would have gluten free food that I could eat.  Since it was almost the end of the week, I needed some gluten free food for our trip home.

Hubby found a park for us to stop at while we were in Mount Pleasant.  I wish I remembered the name of the park.  I believe it was Patriots Point but I’m not sure.

After we were finished with seeing the park, we went to Aldi’s.

On our way back to the beach house, we stopped at a restaurant called Cory’s Grilled Cheese.  We found this restaurant when we visited Folly Beach in 2013.  Hubby and I each got our dinner there.  The boys ate dinner at the beach house.

Angel Oak – Day 8 Part 2

Day 8 Part 1 was my Thursday Morning Beach Walk.

After my brother-in-law and nephew ran the Ravenel Bridge, our family decided to meet up at Angel Oak for our traditional visit to the Oak.

The Angel Oak is located on John’s Island.  It is at least 400 to 500 years old.  Some consider it to be one of the oldest living oaks in the country.

It’s a must see if you are going to visit Charleston.  It’s located about a half an hour from the downtown Charleston.

While you are at the Angel Oak, make sure you read the signs because there is a lot of restrictions because they are trying to preserve the oak for future generations.  When we went in 2013, I was talked to because I put my tripod in an area that tripods were prohibited.  (I only had to move it a few feet.)

Enjoy my video of our visit to the Angel Oak.

Wednesday Night Sunset – Day 7 Part 7

On the way home from downtown Charleston, we stopped at Chick Fil-A for dinner.  Since the Wee One had been excellent while we were at the Citadel and in downtown Charleston, we allowed him to pick our dinner.

That night we decided to once again to watch the sunset.  Instead of heading to the Sunset Marina, we opted to go to the Folly Beach Park which was located close to our house.

When we walked into the park, there was a couple who had a parrot with them.  We stopped and talked to the couple so we could meet the gorgeous parrot.

Since there was a pelican rookery close to the park, I kept mentioning the amount of pelicans that were flying over our heads.

While we were waiting for the sunset, Hubby kept trying to find sharks’ teeth while I was walking around the beach trying to get great photos.  When he wasn’t looking for the teeth, I was showing him how to take photos using the reflection of the surf.

The sunset was not as brilliant at the park which was a bummer.  However I did get cool photos of the sunset with palm trees and oat grass.

Enjoy the video of the sunset.

Join me next week for our visit to Angel Oak.
