I think I'm still nursing a bit of a caffeine hangover from the STARBUCKS DOUBLE-SHOT ENERGY DRINK I picked up to get me that last 80 miles from Morgantown to Pittsburgh, but I'm finally home from vacation in Charleston.
The way this vacaton got started, 6 months ago, was this:
Me: Silas, I want to go to the beach.
Silas: Ew. Why?
Me: Um... because it's sand and ocean and amazingness.
Silas: It's hot, which I hate. Humid, which I hate. Sandy, which I hate. The South, which I hate. And not the city, which I hate.
Me: It will be fun!
Silas: I am not under any circumstances going to an east coast beach. *pause* You should, though!
So Ellie flew to Pittsburgh from Oregon and we (plus Gideon) took a road trip to Charleston where we met my brother, Rainor, who had flown in from Louisiana. We rented a gorgeous house via airbnb.com and relaxed like it was our job.
I will be about posting pictures etc... etc... soon enough. Until then I'll give you this to hold you over:
