Getting ready for a beach vacation!

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

I am always dreaming of a beach vacation. Once I get back from one, I start planning another. My mom is from the East Coast, so growing up we often visited East Coast beaches. I have come to love the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. There is something very serene and rustic about it. It feels much different than the Caribbean, the Gulf, etc. On the other hand, my husband did not travel to the East Coast much for family vacations, so I'm excited to say that he will be relaxing on an East Coast beach for his first time on the 4th of July! We are headed to Kiawah Island, South Carolina...30 minutes from Charleston, a city I have longed to visit for many years. Kiawah is most well-known for the Sanctuary Hotel , but we decided to rent a house and plan to cook our favorite seafood dishes each night. Also, if you enjoy golf, there are a number of beautiful courses on the island. Golf is not at the top of our list, but we do love to surf and although Kiawah is not a surf town, Folly Beach is right down the road and has some decent surf. Surf that will suite me just fine and surf that might bore my husband a bit :). If you have never traveled to East Coast beaches, I highly recommend the trip. There is something special about southern beach towns and I cannot wait to experience Kiawah! Some pictures of Kiawah are below. I'll be sure and update you with some highlights of the Island once we get there!

Let me know if you have been to Kiawah Island and things we can't miss out on when we are there! I can't wait to hear about all the beach vacations you all have planned this summer!
