Snyders Visit The Low Country

June 25th Stuart and I celebrated our FIVE year anniversary. We decided to celebrate we would take a trip. We LOVE to travel to new places. We usually have nothing on the agenda but checking out the sites and finding great local places to eat. This trip was no different.
We went to Charleston SC. We stayed at a fun little Inn right downtown in the middle of it all. We parked our car on Wednesday and did not move it until we left on Saturday. We walked everywhere. There was plenty of history to keep Stuart interested, beautiful architecture, GREAT shopping and fantastic seafood around every corner. We LOVED it there. Below are some pictures of our trip. I took hundreds so here are a few to illustrate the week. If you notice we are child free in the photos...WE WERE. Clark stayed with my mom and dad while we were gone. I am pretty sure he had an equally great time with his mamaw and papaw.

The lovely Inn we called home for a few days.

This guy was very excited about oysters on the first night.

Me- At Fleets Landing-
We had to dine on the water our first night!

We ate breakfast rooftop each day!

We loved eating on the roof.
Even at 8:00 am it was already about 90 degrees!

Please remember it was about 100 degrees!

We took a lot of self- portraits!

A view of the city from our ferry.

Stuart on the ferry to Ft. Sumter.

He did a WHOLE LOT of THIS!
He LOVES stuff like this.
(Don't tell him, but I enjoyed it too.)

We ate lunch at Jestine's Kitchen.
It is a tiny little place that we heard was a "must do".
It has been on The Travel Channel and in many magazines.

Stuart's meal-
As soon as we had the first bite we understood why it made all the lists!

There is a constant line to get in.
We made it there right before the line started.
By the time we left it was all the way down the block!

Our last night we enjoyed a dinner at Hank's Seafood.
It was a wonderful place to celebrate our anniversary!

As you can see we enjoyed every minute. It was HOT, but we survived. We missed our boys but knew they were having a GREAT time. (I might have called at least three times a day just to make sure) We even went out on the town one night with some friends from college who live there. We enjoyed that too. So, to sum it all up, we relaxed, shopped and ate WAY too much. I love traveling with this guy. I love that we don't need a plan we always seem to find things to do and have fun doing it. In the midst of all the sightseeing and eating I also read TWO books. I have not read a good book in a while so that was a highlight too! As we drove home through six states we started planning the next trip! yay!

Have I mentioned I LOVE SUMMER!?!
