Beachy Biscuit Breakfast

July 12, 2009

I think we all fell a little in love with Charleston this weekend :)

Erica and I got up at 7 to go for a run together before we headed out. (Tina’s hip is still hurting :( ) We ran 5.25 miles in about 50 minutes all through her gorgeous planned neighborhood. I want to live there for the bike and running paths!! It was a good run – lots of talking so it went by fast!

Erica and Josh were wonderful hosts, leaving us some surprises on our beds! We slept so well in their cozy guest bed.

After showers and caffeine, we all headed out for breakfast at the beach!

We went to Sea Biscuit at Isle of Palms

Lots ‘O charm

And a long list of daily specials!

It was hard to decide, but I ordered the Blueberry Walnut French Toast

It was great! Very homemade tasting. I finished the whole plate (was famished from my run) and added a little maple syrup and enjoyed some of Tina’s fruit.

Matt got a tomato + bacon benedict (and shared a bite)

The fruit plates were gorg!

After breakfast we headed out to the sand to put our feet in the ocean

Wish we could have stayed longer to play!!

We drove TIna + Mal through Sullivan’s Island, historic Mt. Pleasant, and a swirl through downtown Charleston before getting back on I-26 to head back to Charlotte.

We had such a wonderful weekend with our “new” friends. Wish we could get together with both couples more often.

Off to the airport!

I’ve been dying to go to Charleston for years- love hearing how great it is! Staying on my itinerary 😀

The breakfasts sound great- Cherry walnut bread? Pineapple coconut bread? Further confirmation that I need to visit ASAP!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, Kath!

Aww, the photo shoots look so nice! I’m pretty camera shy so unfortunately, I don’t have that many photo of my guy and me…I should get over that and get some more cute photos!

Looks like such a pretty town! You know you guys could always open your very own personally named bakery in Charleston! 😉


6 Daria (Summer of the CSAs) July 12, 2009 at 2:53 pm

Whoa, is that gift from your hosts a banana flattened or banana flatbread? Either way, sounds delish!


7 lynn (The Actors Diet) July 12, 2009 at 2:56 pm

Charleston really is one of the most beautiful places! I’ve loved the whole weekend! You all look so sunny, healthy and happy! Umm, and ending it with a fab run and brilliant french toast? Perfection. Have a safe trip back!

20 M July 12, 2009 at 6:25 pm

I love early morning runs in fun new spots! It seems less like a workout and more like exploration.


21 Tay July 12, 2009 at 8:23 pm

OH MY WORD!! French toast is my absolute fave, and BLUEBERRY french toast?? That looks amazing!!

Glad you’re having such a fun time! :-)


22 Christina July 12, 2009 at 8:32 pm

So glad to hear it!! Enjoy!



26 Cait (Cait's Plate) July 13, 2009 at 8:10 am

Holy yum! That place looks amazing! I think I even just fell in love with Charleston a little! Or maybe A LOT :)


27 Jennifer July 13, 2009 at 4:49 pm

looks like you hit up all the super touristy spots in Charleston. just a tip, next time avoid the east bay street area and check out upper king instead. remember-tourists shouldn’t lead other tourists! haha.


28 Maria July 13, 2009 at 6:55 pm

How fun! I love Tina and Erica. Glad I found your blog now!
