Kiawah Island/Charleston Vacation: Part 2

The last part of our week in South Carolina provided us with many wonderful experiences...just as the first half did!  We spent more time on the beach and saw a few more sights as well.





Luci had an encounter with some seagulls too!  Those birds definitely recognize snack food when they see it.  Luci has some goldfish in a bag and they literally swarmed her!  Check out the video below.  Hilarious!

We took a sunset cruise out of Bohicket Marina and Luci got to drive the boat.  We saw several dolphins up close and a beautiful sunset!









Below are pictures of the Angel Oak; a HUGE live oak estimated to be over 1400 years old.  It provides over 17,000 square feet of shade and it literally the biggest tree I have ever seen.  It is protected but if it wasn't it would be a kid's climbing paradise!




We had a fabulous time and as always the week went by entirely too fast!  Now to sail back to the real world...
