Episode 13: We Saw Alligators and Drove Down to Savannah

You’re probably sick and tired of all the Charleston spam. It’s a sort of #sorrynotsorry moment because I’m still very much holding on to those 4 beautiful days. On the second day of exploring Charleston, we had breakfast at the Butcher and Bee, and headed to the Magnolia Plantation. Charleston is famous for having a few plantations in its surroundings and we chose the Magnolia because of their famous gardens. It was a beautiful morning spent in nature. We had a tour of the historic house and the rice fields, got to see some alligators and ride around in a boat. It was a hard morning because of the intense heat and 100% humidity. Which made it all the more tiring. By the time we went back to the city we dove in the pool of our hotel and got ready for an early dinner at the Pearlz Oyster Bar.

The next, and last day, we got up early to catch the sunrise at Sullivan’s Island. It took us around 20 minutes to get there and, even though it was cloudy, you can see a glimpse in the video below. After, we went back to the hotel, got changed and travelled to Savannah, Georgia. Yet another state. I’ve heard wonders of Savannah and it held up to my expectations. Regardless of the hot and humid day (Poppy crashed eventually), I loved walking around. Eventually we stopped filming because it was too much to handle. The video camera, the phone, the dog and the photographic camera. We had lunch at the Collin’s Quarter. I had the Ahi Poke Tacos – which I’m still dreaming of – and Manel enjoyed the Caprese.

By the time we went back to Charleston it was raining and later that day, we had yet another early dinner at 167 Raw. Their lobster roll and it went straight up to the top of my top 3 list. Before dinner, I still got to enjoy the city a bit more and snapped a few more pictures. I hope you enjoyed following along our trip and let me know if you’ve been to Charleston or what other cities in North America you recommend. I would love to know and plan a visit.
