Labor Day traditionally marks the end of the lazy days of summer, so our family headed for the coast to spend a final beach weekend soaking in the sun, sand, and surf. Luckily, Hurricane Hermine blew through before the weekend began and left behind some amazing, cooler weather and azure blue skies.
Usually we are in a rush to get to the beach, but this trip we took our time and stopped for lunch in Historic Georgetown.
A bit of a well-kept secret, this charming city is dripping with picturesque homes, quaint restaurants and shops as well as rich history. My mother has always been fond of Georgetown and was sure to include a stop on our family beach visits, so I’m very familiar with the iconic Rice Museum on Front Street, fresh vegetable plates at Thomas’s Cafe and eerie ghost tours explaining about the town’s notorious haunts. We enjoyed the gorgeous weather with an outdoor lunch at Alfresco Georgetown Bistro, which was quite accommodating to Little Lovely, and then strolled along the waterfront.Our destination for the weekend was Debordieu where we joined a few other families- 6 babies and one on the way- for some beach fun. Eloise had a ball splashing in the water and digging in the sand, and mommy and daddy enjoyed taking in the beautiful view from the porch while she napped. It was wonderful watching all of the children play together and having some adult conversation too. Happy Labor Day!
