This past weekend, I was lucky enough to be able to catch a ride south to spend the weekend in Charleston with Bill. The adult time alone was much needed. We didn’t now take the time for granted, though, and spend every minute on the go doing something we might not be able to with a little one in tow.
Friday night we stayed out late walking on Sullivan’s Island looking for shells and spying on crabs. We ventured over to High Thymes for a duck appetizer and drinks.
Saturday, we rented bikes and rode all over the lower peninsula. After lunching at Two Boroughs Larder, we rode around stopping here and there for site seeing, drinks and to browse shops and galleries. Around sunset, we road over the Arthur Ravenel Bridge to Mount Pleasant for dinner and drinks at Finz Bar and Grill.
Sunday, we had a late morning snack and coffee at City Lights before heading down to Sullivan’s Island to lounge on the beach all day. My husband had a great idea, though. Before I was allowed to kick back and read, he talked me into swimming about
a quarter mile ten miles to a sandbar and back. Everyone else was doing it, so why not, right? Ha! We did find some giant shells but decided not to hear anymore of his great ideas for a little while.
Monday, Bill worked and I went down town to White Point Gardens to read and walk along the battery wall. That afternoon we went and visited what will be out home starting this coming weekend. It may only be temporary bc it lacks some must-have characteristics (third bedroom and yard). However, we won’t have to sign a lease or pay a deposit and it will help make finding the right home a little less stressful due to time and distance.
What a fun weekend in Charleston. It flew by, but I did my best to make the most of every moment alone with him. I can’t wait for us to all be back together, settling and creating new routines.
