By Sunday morning, we were throwing around ideas about how to move there. But I think my Sweet Tea had been spiked with Happy Thoughts and Southern Fairy Dust, because as fun and amazing it was, we're true Massholes, and would not know what to do with ourselves in such a peaceful, simple, fabulous place.
So yeah, getting back to the birthday weekend. What a lovely time. We headed out on an early flight Friday AM, and were walking the cobblestone streets in Low country by 10:30am. We stayed at the Harborview Inn, and it lived up to all my expectations (High A/C Voltage and Sweet Tea was pretty much on the top of the list).
When we got off the plane, a huge wool blanket of humidity wrapped itself around us, welcoming us to the South. Usually I am an overpacker, but this was the first place where I wore every. single. article. of clothing. Due to the wardrobe changes you'd have to do about 3 times a day, since you'd be sweating after you walked 2 blocks in the sun.
View from our Hotel Lobby.
I call her the Lacoste Dog, because she hugged herself around the Water Bowl the store had put out for doggies on such a hot day! Yes, we travel all the way to Charleston, just to shop at a Lacoste :) we hit up local shops and Margaritaville as well (where I bought a notepad that had the post title on it.. classic!)
This place had the most amazingly potent frozen drinks in the wall. Ambiance = excellent.
The horses were nagging each other during this tour.
So many fun Rooftop decks in Charleston. These 2 pix were taken from the Vendue Inn, where they have a sweet bar and a fabulous view of the Harbor. This roofdeck was setting up for a wedding (1 of 4 weddings I saw over the wknd)
And if you're still reading this post **ridiculous alert** I saw a chick getting arrested for shoplifting! She was getting escorted out of a shop on King St. (rhymes with Shmurban Shout-hitters) Hubs was like 'OMG' when I busted out the camera and started taking paparazzi pix.
talk soon. Carolina Girl
