We spent the first three nights of our vacation in Folly Beach where we had a spectacular view from our room at the beachfront Tides hotel.
Mornings were spent lazily sipping iced coffee by the pool…
…and stumbling across critters like this horseshoe crab.
Lost Dog Cafe was our daily stop for a hearty brunch and drinks served in Mason jars.
We took a private charter boat over to Morris Island, an uninhabited island and location of the Civil War battle featured in the movie Glory. On the way over, Captain Gresh pointed out Atlantic bottlenose dolphins (the first time I’ve seen them in the wild) and oyster beds.
We headed up the shoreline of Folly Beach to a more secluded area of the coast for an evening stroll. (I don’t think Dave knew I was busy snapping photos of him.)
It’s hard to see in this photo, but there were little pelicans perched atop the Folly Beach street signs.
Honestly, I was probably looking for shells at this moment. (The retro-esque beach coverup was purchased at eShakti.)
I’ll never grow tired of serene beach sunsets…
…or vibrant sunny days.
And, in true blogger fashion, I took an obscene amount of Instagrams.
I’ll share photos of Savannah and Charleston soon!
