South Carolina Recap (Part 2)

Our first full day on Kiawah Island started off with pouring rain. We were told to try out the Sunday brunch at The Sanctuary, so we'd made reservations and went. The food was SO good, and the view was really nice. Luckily the weather let up a bit as the day went on, too.
After stuffing ourselves silly with yummy food and endless mimosas, we went for a walk around the grounds and took pics:




Since the weather cleared up, we went down to the beach for a couple hours before heading home and making dinner.

The next day was beautiful so we got up, had breakfast, packed lunches and made our way to the beach early. We spent the whole day there and ended our afternoon with some bevies on the beach :)

We made our way back to the cottage, showered, and MG made grilled chicken for dinner while we watched for gators...and eventually spotted one! We went out to the water's edge to see it, and the gator turned around and swam back our way. As it got close, we all turned and ran:
The next morning all 4 of us were up and at 'em early to play tennis. It was hotter than hot out and the courts were in the sun which made for an extra strenuous tennis game, but fun nonetheless.
After that, we made our way down to the beach for the entire day, ending with beers on the beach before heading back to our cottage to shower, cook and hang on the deck.

We ate together, had some wine, and then decided to go for a bike ride to get ice cream cones.
Once we got back, it was getting dark and the guys wanted to go for another bike ride in the dark...Jac and I passed and let them have their fun while we hung out on the deck and chatted it up. It was nice to have girl time :) And the guys didn't get eaten by gators, thankfully.


The next day was just a day at the beach....more of the same from the previous day. At night, though, we decided to take bikes on a ride around and see the HUMONGOUS houses on the other part of the island. As sunset got closer, we decided to ride our bikes back on the beach....which would have been a great idea if we hadn't been riding right into the wind lol. Needless to say, we got another workout in for the day, but the scenery was well worth it!

The next morning, MG and I went for a drive to get supplies since our friends Kev and Michelle were coming into town for the wedding on Friday, but came a day early to hang with us at the house.
Our views on our drives were always SO beautiful:
Errands aren't so bad with a view like that!

Our friends arrived and we made our way to grab lunch and then hit up the beach for the day where we telexed, played games and just had fun:

Before we knew it, it was time to head back to the cottage and get ready for dinner. We ate out at a restaurant nearby that had an incredible view for the sunset:


Nothing beats beautiful weather, view and friends:
After dinner, we went back to the cottage, made some bevies and played games.

It was the perfect way to wrap up our week in Kiawah, before going to our friends' wedding the next evening (which I already recapped last week).
That's my week in SC! We had SO much fun--I love looking back at all the pics we took and the fun we had.
