postcards: kiawah island, sc

My family and I began our summer by recently visiting Kiawah Island in South Carolina for our annual family vacation – it was awesome. It felt good to be back in South Carolina [we miss you HHI] and the house in which we resided was unbelievable. Kiawah is ridiculously and conveniently close to Charleston, therefore we drove up there one evening for dinner. I’m pretty sure I made a mistake by not going to college there…

While we were in town, I stopped in Blue Bicycle Books and purchased an vintage edition of Jane Eyre and another Lewis Carroll book. We wandered up and down King Street and ate dinner at Hanks Seafood which was delicious. After dinner, we stopped by the John Rutledge House Inn. It was the residence of John Rutledge (1739 – 1800) who was the first Governor of the State of South Carolina. He also signed the U.S. Constitution in 1787. Needless to say, we stole pens and napkins with our family name on it (how common of us).

My dad and I were talking about how South Carolina makes us feel more at home than any other place [besides Nashville, obviously]. Something about the Spanish moss, salty air, brown sand and the friendly people just feels right. Needless to say, perhaps Charleston will be my next destination? I think so.
