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!
