Even though I lived in Charleston for three years, I never once kayaked while I was there. Thus, when the Wild Dunes Resort booked us for a “Champagne and Sunset tour” as part of our romantic Southern getaway, my husband and I could not have been more excited for our adventure on Shem Creek.
We crossed the bridge from Isle of Palms into Mt. Pleasant where we met our tour operator at Nature Adventures Outfitters. I debated before getting into the kayak whether or not to bring my camera or iPhone and decided to not take the chance and brought the latter. Thus, all of the following photos were taken using the app Instagr.am.
Our paddle down historic Shem Creek began amongst shrimp boats and festive restaurants. Happy Hour was just beginning and the locals greeted us with friendly waves as we floated by.
As the sun began to set we stopped at another nearby island, one that was not protected, so that we could celebrate the end of our day with some champagne.
Is there anything more beautiful than the sun changing a myriad of colors right before your eyes while you are sipping champagne next to your loved one and the sound of the ocean provides a romantic soundtrack?
