Life's a Beach

My family took a vacation last week to Isle of Palm, S.C. - a barrier island by Charleston. We spent a lot of time on the beach and in the ocean - it was great to see the ocean through the eyes of my nieces and nephews. I also had my bike with me and went on a few solo rides checking out some of the historic sites and scenery with my film cameras(those posts soon). Charleston is a great city - it is amazing how well preserved it is. This is a vacation spot I would definitely return to - there are a lot of things that we/I didn't even have time for(such as Fort Sumter).

One room wide "Charleston style" houses - with carriage tour in front. We took one of these tours also - it was really great - learned a ton of history.

"Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge"
I rode my bike out here one afternoon. This bridge goes between Mt. Pleasant and Charleston.

Beach on Sullivan's Island - which is the island next to Isle of Palms.

"Breach Inlet"
Which divides Sullivan's from Isle of Palms - there was a Revolutionary War battle here.

Ryen on the beach.

Great dinner and drink spot on Sullivan's Island.
