The Perfect Afternoon
Last week, I went on a much needed girl’s trip to Charleston, SC. While I’m still putting together a post on our full itinerary, I thought I’d share one of the best pieces of our trip with you. On our last day, we decided to spend the afternoon at Hampton Park. The weather was absolutely gorgeous, & the park was filled with beautiful big trees & blooming flowers at every turn. Oh, & there were palm trees! I didn’t realize how tropical Charleston is! Anyways, it was the best afternoon, & an ideal way to close out our amazing girl’s trip.
Picnic & A Bike Ride
Before we arrived at the Hampton Park, we picked up some lunch from The Park Café. This cute little restaurant has great food, amazing service, & is very aesthetically pleasing. I highly recommend visiting this little gem if you’re ever in Charleston. Instead of eating there, we decided to take our food to the park for a nice afternoon picnic. We were all craving a bit of sunshine, so we laid out our blankets in the open green grass & soaked up the sun. I ordered some tasty avocado toast with some roasted sweet potato bites & a fresh squeezed lemonade. We ate, chatted, & laughed until we were ready to get up an explore more of this beautiful park.
Instead of walking around the park, we decided to rent bikes! They were super easy & inexpensive & the perfect way to explore the park, feel the cool breeze, & get a bit of exercise. We rode about the park for an entire hour checking out all the plants, people watching, & remembering how much fun it is to ride a bike.
This summer I want more days like this. Even though I won’t be back in Charleston, I vow to get out & do more things like this in my own city. Picnics are just the best. If you’re in Richmond & want to have a picnic, call me up! Let’s soak up the sun, eat yummy food, & enjoy the beautiful outdoors.
