I spent Tuesday through Friday of last week staying in an adorable little house at Wild Dunes in Isle of Palms, South Carolina with my family for spring break. We had an awesome time and today I’m so excited to share the details of our trip with y’all! I’m sharing a ton of pictures as well as a video, which I recommend you watch in HD by clicking the HD button in the bottom right corner of the video. I also linked most of the locations, restaurants, and shops mentioned so you can check them out for yourself if you’re planning trip to Isle of Palms. Enjoy!
We left for Isle of Palms after lunch around 12:00 p.m. on Tuesday. We spent our three and a half hour car ride watching movies, eating goldfish, and doing those fun spring break homework assignments (well actually that was just me and that “fun” comment was definitely sarcastic) before arriving at our house in Isle of Palms’ Wild Dunes resort area around 3:30 p.m. When we got to the house we spent half an hour or so picking rooms and settling in then my father, sister, brother, and I went on a short walk to the beach! It was so nice to have a house within walking distance from the beach and after this initial walk my sister and I felt comfortable enough to walk to the beach on our own. When we got back to the house around 5:00 p.m. and my stepmom made pasta for dinner, which we ate around 6:00 p.m. After dinner my sister and I went on another walk to the beach. We took a few photos, shared many laughs, and watched the sunset before coming back to the house, showering, and going to bed.
My sister and I woke up around 8:30 a.m. and had crescent rolls with Nutella for breakfast before heading to the beach at 10:00 a.m. While it was sunny, the weather was not in our favor as winds and cooler temperatures pushed us away from the water. We walked back to our house around noon, where we had turkey and cheese sandwiches for lunch. My brother, sister, and father have been watching The Flash on Netflix together, so while they binge watched for a few hours I worked on my AP U.S. History homework and my stepmother read her books. Around 4:30 p.m. we began getting ready for dinner out. We went to The Refuge around 6:00 p.m. and it was amazing! I ordered the Amelia sandwich, which was turkey, tomato (which I asked to have taken off), avocado, bacon, mozzarella, and pesto (which I also asked to have excluded) on sourdough bread. For dessert my sister and I split a peanut butter and chocolate pie. After dinner we returned to the house and got ready for bed.
Thursday morning I slept in until around 10:00 a.m. while my family went on a walk. After waking up as they were leaving, I ate a couple cinnamon rolls for breakfast and read the Bible on the deck. When my family returned from their walk around 11:00 a.m., we drove to Acme Low Country Kitchen for brunch. I had the island toast and it was so good. After brunch we came back to the house for a couple hours before heading to Wild Dunes’ pool area overlooking the beach. While at the pool, I tanned and worked on more AP U.S. History homework before playing lacrosse with my little brother. My sister and I also spent a little time on the beach. We returned to the house around 3:00 p.m., then my sister and I went on a walk to a gift shop on the resort property to buy tee shirts. After our little trip to the gift shop, we got ready for dinner. We ate at the Morgan Creek Grill on the marina, where I had fish and chips then a chocolate cake for dessert. We returned to the house after dinner, began packing, and went to bed.
I woke up around 9:00 a.m., and after having a couple crescent rolls for breakfast I finished packing. We did one final sweep of the house and loaded the car to begin the journey home around 11:00 a.m.
