Charleston, South Carolina
Mack had a business trip planned to Charleston, so we decided to tag along and sneak in a few days at the beach. We have been lucky enough to visit Charleston every year for the past 5 years or so. A good friend owns a couple of condos about 2 miles outside of downtown. It is the perfect location for shopping, restaurants, and the beach. We didn't have perfect beach weather, but we still managed to enjoy the ocean.
Charlie loved the beach this year. Last year he enjoyed it until sand ended up on his face or in his mouth. At that point, he had a major breakdown. This year, he didn't care where sand ended up. In fact, we may never get rid of all the sand!
Annie loved it, too. She jumped waves and sat in the sand to let the waves run over her legs. She spent a good amount of time looking for the perfect shell.
Max was in heaven. He spent all but about 10 minutes in the ocean on his boogie board. I have to admit, he was pretty good at it.
Again, we may never get rid of all the sand. I seem to be finding it everywhere.
I wish the weather had cooperated more, be we did have a great time. We had some wonderful food, did a little shopping, and were just plain lazy. In that regard, it was definitely a true vacation!
