We travelled by car with my parents down to Kiawah Island Golf & Tennis Resort so that Jason could spend 2+ hours playing tennis with the club pros everyday, as part of his 40th birthday gift. Kiawah is an interesting place. I didn’t realize before we went that it was a popular alligator hang out spot. These signs were everywhere on the island…
We saw three in our time there, one in the water on the golf course! Needless to say I was cautious when walking by myself or with just me and Gage.
On the drive down we spent a few hours in Charleston. I would’ve liked more so maybe we’ll have to plan a second trip.
Gage wanted his picture taken with EVERY cannon in Battery Park, but I fell in love with the trees.
We had some lunch at the Southend Brewery & Smokehouse and headed for the pier where Gage found this fountain…. Our time in Charleston was fun, but too short.
Kiawah Island was lovely (sans the alligators) and we had a relaxing week staying in one of the villas. Gage built sandcastles on the beach, swam with Daddy, and just chilled out.
The restaurants on the island were all great and able to handle Gage’s allergy restrictions. Jason and I went out for a date on our last night there and this was out pre-dinner spot. Not bad, right?
If we are friends on Facebook you probably saw that Gage had some carsickness both coming and going but this was the backseat when we were almost home from the long drive…so the trip was a success 🙂
Now on to trying to catch up with seven days of responsibility neglect!

What a fun trip, Stacy! I’m sorry about Gage’s carsickness. I love the photos you shared here, especially the one of the tree.
I am glad you are safely home again. 🙂
It looks like you had a great time! Those trees remind me of the ones that are in my yard. Huge and sprawling.
I’ve been through Charleston many times but have never stopped to check it out. Now I want to 🙂 !
Poor Gage. My grandson has been known to get car sick a time or two, and it’s no fun at all.
Glad you made it home safely!
What a great recap of our trip😊 It was wonderful in every way!
What a wonderful trip!! Alligators are all over that part of South Carolina – after a while, you don’t pay any attention to them.
Haha. Made me rethink about my desire to move south 🙂
Sounds like an amazing week!
Cannon pictures. An absolute necessity.
Never been to either of the Carolinas. Looks beautiful.
