This may be one of my favorite trips that I have ever taken with my honey. I genuinely enjoyed every single minute of it. The weather was gorgeous, the food was amazing, and even in the midst of Covid is was nothing less than perfect.
On the first day we got in, the humidity literally smacked us in the face…. we got off the plane, got our rental, and headed straight to get some food. If you have read my other blog, you know Anthony & I are foodies. We genuinely enjoy trying new foods & different restaurants. It’s literally a staple in our relationship. The first restaurant we went to was a place called, Pages Okra Grill. We had the most amazing crab cakes, for breakfast followed by an actual breakfast. You see, we live in Indiana… the closest thing we have to seafood is Red Lobster, and there is absolutely NO comparison. I just try to avoid it at all costs. The crab cakes were phenomenal, Anthony absolutely loved them. I’m not always a “cake” type person, so he ate most of them.
For breakfast, Anthony had french toast & I had an omelet & both of the meals were absolutely delicious!
After we left the restaurant, we decided to go get out for a little bit, so we dropped our bags off & headed out to Folly Beach. Oh my goodness was Folly Beach ever worth it. We had so much fun. This wasn’t our first time on a beach together, but it literally was so nice. The weather was so perfect & the water wasn’t too salty at all.
The next day, we ended up going back to Folly, & eating lunch at this little shack on the beach. We ordered a fried platter & it was AMAZING. I mean amazing. After that, we went back to the beach before the sun set & the weather started to change. We didn’t run into any bad weather this trip. What was so ironic, is a hurricane had just passed through & we missed ALL of it & its aftermath.
One of the days, we decided to visit downtown Charleston at their city market. It was so busy… It was filled with locals, tourists, and people trying to sell you things on every corner; down to baskets, bamboo made flowers, and all sorts of random things. It was hot as HEO. Do you hear me (HEY-O)?!? Lol! I could not wait to get inside & get some air conditioning. Inside the little market, they has all sorts of booths & places set up where you could buy little trinkets & things… we end up going on a tour ride throughout the city to learn some of it’s history. It had some of the absolute most beautiful houses I have ever seen…
Fun fact: When I was younger my family & I had an annual trip of going to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina & I always promised myself I would move to South Carolina when I got older.
By the market, there was this little cute restaurant called Henry’s. It was on the corner, and we were starving so we gave it a try. It had the most AMAZING bisquits & gravy that I have ever had in my life. It was so good that we almost contemplated going back the next day. The restaurant was so cute & it had a very unique style.
Later that night, we went to this seafood restaurant over looking the water & it was so beautiful & perfect. I’m unsure what it was called, but at this restaurant we both got something that we normally don’t get. For an appetizer, we shared some mussels… They were SO good. For dinner we had a seafood paella, it was nothing less than perfect, I ate every bit of it in that restaurant.
This will forever be one of my most memorable trips. There are a lot of things that Charleston has to offer, I just simply took the time to share those memories with Anthony & forgot about sharing them with you guys.
