What I like Wednesday- South Carolina

I actually wasn't going to post about my awesome vacation in Santee, SC. For two reasons: 1) I really don't like sifting through pictures, editing them, and then collage-ing them. Takes forever. 2) Do you REALLY want to see pictures of my vacation? Really? So really Mom, this is for you. :) I'll let the pictures do most of the talking, since they are worth a thousand words.

 On our drive down we stopped in Raleigh, NC. 100% of the reason I wanted to stop was because Clay Aiken was raised there. True story.

 We ate sooo much delicious food. My three faves: shrimp and grits (OMG WHYY DID I NEVER HAVE THIS BEFORE?), perfect scallops, and so-fresh-I-actually-just-picked-them-off-a-plantation strawberries.

We saw sooo many beautiful sites, a lot of them on a personal boat tour of the lake we stayed on. Er, next to.

We went fishing A LOT but didn't catch ONE SINGLE FISH. I had one nibble and a wad of leaves, but no fish. :(

We went to the beach and didn't get sunburned!

We went to Charleston. I loved Ft. Moultrie, I love history!

Visited the still-running Boone Plantation (which you might have seen on The Notebook.) That's where I got the strawberries, ps. And picked cotton.

And overall had a lot of fun. Whyyy do vacations have to go by so quickly?
