After a lovely (basically) half day on Kiawah Island, I was ready to soak in a full day!
We were just a short walk from the beach, so I went there often. This view (above) is pretty much my favorite. There’s something about the neutral wood against the vibrant green plants and the bright blue water and sky. Something to the way the walkway opens up to the vast ocean ahead.
In the morning we cheered the Kiawah Island Triathlon runners as they ended their race just behind our rental. Sis made slow cooker oatmeal for breakfast #1.
Breakfast #2 featured toasted bagels, scrambled eggs with lots of fresh parsley, and fresh fruit with a tasty dipping sauce.
Maybe I’ll run through these one day? I’m not much of a runner, swimmer, or biker, but you never know. If I was going to do a triathlon, the Kiawah one would be ideal for me.
This wild looking bird landed on the back porch behind our rental. Does anyone know what kind it is? I took pictures from far away, using the camera’s zoom.
For lunch, we had salads, plus shrimp, broccoli, and chickpea farro.
I can haz? Nope. No human food for the corgster.
Frequent trips to the beach? Yes, please!
We got to do a fun cookout on the night of Day 2.
We went here last year, too.
Up! That’s a good looking tree!
The lighting was gorgeous at the cookout.
I wasn’t surprised our family was one of the first to be ready to eat.
That view, though!
We got to do a sunset boat ride.
We did the ride a little later than last year, so I didn’t get as many amazing photos.
We arrived in time to make s’mores.
The s’more is pretty much the perfect cookout dessert. I did watch a recent Pioneer Woman episode where she made some s’more flavor variations (mint chocolate chip maybe?), plus some banana boats (bananas that get cooked with chocolate and other goodness). They looked delicious, but it would be hard for anything to top the classic s’more for me.
