Isle of Palms getaway

Wednesday, July 6, 2016

 Joe and I had so much fun last year at Myrtle Beach and we wanted to get in a little beach time this year as well. I ended up getting a 4 day weekend so we headed to Folly Beach, South Carolina.

We pulled up to the hotel around 10:15 that night. Long story short - the hotel wasn't AT ALL how it was pictured online!! A nearby beach, Isle of Palms, was recommended to us so we found a Hampton Inn near there for the night. The next day we got up and went to Isle of Palms, found a realty place, and rented an adorable beachfront condo for the weekend.

Before check in time at the condo, we went to Charleston. When the heat index is 108, you find indoor activities!! Lunch was at a great Caribbean restaurant called Fuel (no AC here, but plenty of fans), then we went to the South Carolina Aquarium. When we entered the parking garage, the clearance sign was 7'6" but as we went up, it changed to 7'!! Joe's truck was a tight fit.

The condo had these fun bunk beds in the hall! We couldn't resist taking a pic.

 We ate at fun little restaurants like The Sea Biscuit Cafe, Charleston's Cafe, Coconut Joe's Beach Grill, Banana Cabana, Luke 'n Ollie's Pizzeria, and the Long Island Cafe.

 Joe fished on the private pier and I took pics :)

Me and the sun don't get along so Joe made us an awesome shelter with our Sport-brella and beach chairs. 

We got up to watch the sun rise 2 mornings. So beautiful!

 This was a great weekend getaway and we can't wait to go back!

I love reading each and every comment! Be sure to keep up with me on Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook!
