Beach Day at Isle of Palms, South Carolina + Brown Fox Coffee
Happy Wednesday 😊 I hope the first half of your week is going well. I skipped my morning walks this morning, which means I’m about to go out in the 95-degree heat and torture myself for a few miles. I’m on a walking streek so I can’t stop now.
Before I head out for the day, I wanted to stop by and share some photos from our day at the beach. We craved a little getaway, so we packed up the car and drove a few hours to spend our day in the sand. It was so needed, and I’m already missing the waves!
First stop: Brown Fox Coffee
We had our go-to spot we usually hit during our beach trips, but I wanted to try something new. I’m so happy we did because the coffee was delicious here. Becca even bought two bags to go because she loved it so much. It’s such an adorable little coffee spot hidden by overgrown crepe myrtles. We enjoyed iced coffees and paleo cinnamon coffee cake.
I had a lot of questions about my purse on Instagram! I am obsessed with it, and I may go back tomorrow to pick up the light blue one. It’s from an adorable boutique in York, SC. It’s Southern Pagoda!
Cheers to a beach day!
We were going to head to Sullivans Island, but they didn’t allow umbrellas or coolers. There was no way we were going to sit on the beach without either of those, so we decided on Isle of Palms instead. There is much better parking at IOP anyways. 😉
We found the perfect spot and parked ourselves in the sand.
We brought infused water to ensure hydration.
It had lemons, green apples, pineapple, water, ice, and cucumber. Have you ever had Capriccio sangria drinks? I’m not a big Sangria person, but WOW are they good! The watermelon flavor is my favorite. They’re fun and refreshing for the beach.
I’m in love with these containers. You can pack snacks at the bottom with separate spots for dipping sauce on top! They’re meant for salads, but I packed cucumbers and carrots with hummus. Late afternoon, the sky turned black, and it looked like a massive storm was about to roll in. Luckily, it didn’t, but all the other beachgoers took off. Cheers to an empty beach! Trail mix from Publix bulk section! We tried to recreate the beach photos from 2016 😆 I’m not a huge fan of saltwater.
We wanted pizza on the beach for dinner, but the spot was closed 😞 Luckily, we stopped by Burtons for a delicious dinner. We had french fries, salmon, broccoli, and gluten-free general tsos cauliflower with garlic aioli. 😋
This low-key beach day was such a blast and exactly what we both needed.
Questions for you!
- If you could go on a day trip right now, where would you go?
- Do you prefer the beach or pool?
