Bonjour! It’s been a while since mama’s written, and I have some fun updates from our recent trip to Kiawah Island! It’s basically like the Hamptons of the South, right off the coast of Charleston. We stayed at the magnificent Sanctuary Hotel… which I’ll update on a separate feature.
In the meantime, I wanted to share with you some lovely moments from our morning bike ride on the beach during our last day on the island (we just got back this weekend). We were actually frolicking in the waterpark, where I discovered the bike rental vendor right next door. Good thing is, we were all dressed for a ride! Including little man (thank goodness they had training wheels). I was super proud of my Nuke baby, not yet 3 and he really knows his way around a bike (something his preschool teacher has reaffirmed a number of times during his semester appraisal).
Sure, he fell off a couple of times at the beginning (on the concrete pavement no less, ouch!). I’m talking straight-up toppled over. Be that as it may, there was not a single wimper from him – in fact I think that he was paranoid that his daddy was going to take that bike away from him!
We then rode our bikes on miles of perfect sand – fine and firm, against the crashing waves. It was literally the best moment, something I’ve never experienced before (and I wish that I could do that everyday!). Only in the Lowcountry!
