Our Trip South of the Border in Pictures

During the week before Easter, we took a road trip to South Carolina where we visited Isle of Palms and the city of Charleston. Ethan was amazing in the car. We hit that awful line of storms that caused many tornados in VA and NC. We were detoured a bit because of the bad storms but thankfully we found a hotel and stay safe. It was really crazy.

And so starts our story....

LOTS of rain and wind. Thank goodness we didn't see any tornados
(although they were not that far away from us)

some of the devastation on I-95 caused by the tornados

those poor people. we saw one mobile home park that was completely flattened.

...and we're here! checking out the resort and beach at Isle of Palms

our resort

we visited boone plantation one day. this one was unfortunately way too commercial for our liking (once we saw the "RV parking" sign we kind of knew what we were in for but we had already paid). there were some nice things about it...

i loved all of the moss hanging off the trees
gorgeous poppies

these were the slaves' quarters

Charleston again...

of course we got hit with another severe storm on our last evening venture into charleston
we will just have to go back :)

We had tons of fun together on our spring break trip! Hope you did something fun too! If you have never been to SC, definitely check it out one day. It is a beautiful city that has lots to offer! We will absolutely go back one day.
