For some unknown reason the panorama didn’t upload…
Went to Charleston this Weekend and took a small trip over to Edisto and stopped in at the Botany Plantation and Wildlife reserve. I stood on this beach for over an hour and the quietness and just utter separation from the real world was what I needed. I could actually think here. For anyone who hasn’t been here, you need to go. There’s honestly nothing else like it.
Was gonna do my road trip out to Wilmington… but the prices in that area are not in the budget, plus found out Charleston is like a 2 hour-less drive from my place, so I found a rather cheap hotel with everything I want, but was wanting some advice.
I’m from KY and dont know jack crap about hurricane season. Part of me wants to go on this trip in May, the other part wants to wait till August. Sure this would be easier to predict if I was going somewhere this year that was inland, but I have no clue how to predict the weather off the coast. So was wondering if you had any ideas about places to go in that area or hurricane advice. I’d hate to book this thing and then get stormed out… :p
I try to take at least one weekend road trip a year to kinda reboot my system and give myself a day or two to just not do anything and not be bombarded with chores at home. If played out right, It doesn’t cost me more than a few hundred bucks to go out of town for the weekend. Last year’s romp was in Chicago, this year I’ve been playing more toward the beach… don’t wanna go as far as Myrtle (god I hate tourist traps!), but was thinking more on the lines of either Duck North Carolina, or staying in Wilmington NC to sleep and going to find a quiet beach to just hang out at for an afternoon.
Yep… this is pretty much what I’d be doing the whole time there…
Haven’t planned when I’m going, thinking on doing it on a whim like last year ;)
I read that hurricane season usually starts picking up in August on the east coast, so I might do it for my birthday instead this year, but not ON my birthday (July 2nd) due to the holiday rush. Maybe mid July?
