Saturday on Sullivan's - Sarah Weisbrod

Sullivan's Island is the perfect escape from the often scorching heat of downtown Charleston. Located only 10 miles from the city itself, this beautiful and quaint island town has a gorgeous natural beach and is definitely one of Duke and my favorite places to spend the day.

With umbrellas and chairs in tow, we stopped off first at Middle Street Market to pick up some much needed coffee and breakfast to start the day off right. After about an hour of playing and running around in the hot sand, Duke and I cooled off in the water - I just love the way his little face lights up as he experiences the waves - each it seems like for the first time! 

Only a block from the beach is a strip of some of the greatest family and dog friendly restaurants that are a must visit in order to last at the beach all day. Home Team is a local favorite - you can enjoy a break from the sun while eating some of the best bbq at open bar or on their covered porch dawned by big screen televisions. And if you're feeling really adventurous, don't forget to try one of their signature and extremely tasty, Gamechangers - but be careful, those things can be strong! 

I also love that Sullivan's Island is also known for its rich history. Fort Moultrie, one of the oldest standing forts along the Eastern Seaboard and was built to protect the city of Charleston, South Carolina during both the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. It's a definite must-see for any history buff! But at days end it wouldn't be a true day at the beach without experiencing one of Sullivan's Island's beautiful sunsets. With good food, entertainment, and incredible views, it's no wonder Duke and I can spend all day enjoying this incredible island.

Docking along the rocky pier for a lunch break, I give my sea legs a rest back on land. Between bites, I breathe in the perfect Fall day. Peering through my binoculars to focus in on nature’s show, my eyes are met with a tiny red tugboat making wake across the calm water.

Peak foliage in Vermont is short, but oh so sweet. It seems we spend the majority of September waiting with bated breath for any sign of the season to come, for the leaves to lose their cool and earn the prized warmth that only comes with chillier weather.

With a late start to the day, I began my journey upstate and headed up Route 7 to Kent – one of my personal favorite towns in the area. Yankee Magazine named Kent the best town in New England for fall foliage, and it lives up to this distinction.
