Charleston is SO fun!

I'm back from our long weekend trip to Charleston, and omg was it a good time!

Friday morning we went to the airport, flew down to Charleston (after a slight delay sitting on the tarmac), and arrived around 11AM. We spent the day walking around near the water front, and had lunch at an old pier. We saw the infamous pineapple fountain, and walked through the University of Charleston's campus (which was SO pretty).

After a day of walking (and sweating) we went back to the apartment and spent some time poolside before getting ready for a night out.

We went out again in the same area we'd been during the day and had a SUPER fun night, meeting our couple friends' friends. (And eating some yummy BBQ pulled pork grilled cheese sandwiches):

The next morning we headed to the beach and spent the day there until mid afternoon:

(It was more fun than the pic looks)

The sun was strong, but it was nice being by the ocean and catching the breeze there.
After we soaked up enough (too much) sun, we went to a close by restaurant to have a delicious lunch and Game Changers. "What's a Game Changer?," you ask....
THAT is a Game Changer. The pic doesnt show you just HOW big this glass is, but let me tell you, it's BIG. I don't think any of us were able to finish it after getting our food.

After we were done stuffing face, we went over to another water-front area to hang out for a bit. My favorite part was the fact that there were DOLPHINS in the water. I was in my dolphin-loving happy place

We spent the rest of the day there, enjoying the weather, and spending time together:

This was by far the best day of the trip!

We all headed home to shower and have dinner. We spent the night in, watching tv and playing silly games. The next day, the other couple that had been visiting had to head home, so we went to the Open air market in Charleston before taking them to the airport.
Later that night, we went out a dinner/movie place and saw Superman (which was good, just much longer than it needed to be. But, the guy who plays Superman is a TOTAL babe!)

And then Monday we had to leave. We were supposed to leave at 2:50, and ended up finally taking off at 6pm because of thunderstorms in the area in SC, and around DC. We eventually made it home around 8, after suffering through the delays, and an incredibly annoying and LOUD woman who sat behind us the entire time.

And today I get to enjoy getting a cavity filled at the dentist. Not quite what I wanna do after such a fun vacay, but at least I get to get my Coopy pup back today.

Overall, Charleston was great! But, I'm pretty sure that if we had been anywhere, it would have been fun because we were with such great people! It was just made that much better because Charleston was a SUPER fun city!
