My husband and I flew to South Carolina last weekend for a few days in Pawleys Island with my side of the family. (Maybe you saw on Instagram?) I’ve spent time in Pawleys every summer for years and the quaint, beautiful coastal town will always carry a piece of my heart.
I love the quiet mornings and the way the salt air feels on my skin. I love how the sky kisses the sea and the waves greet the sand. I love how the marsh sounds and the way the tide rises and falls. I love the humid air and the painted sunsets. I often dream with Riley about moving to the beach; for now, I’ll hold tight to these memories.
In lieu of sharing photos, I’ve put together a short video, which you can watch below or on Vimeo here. Maybe you’ll understand why I love this place so much.

Oh my goodness, the video is just amazing!! I wish I could figure out how to do video like that! 🙂 And your vacation looked so perfectly relaxing and peaceful – no wonder you loved going there every year! Thanks for sharing, Blair! 🙂

Thank you, Hannah! 🙂 You could totally make a video like it. I just carried my Canon PowerShot SX260 HS with me for a few days and recorded different moments here and there, found some free/royalty free music, and edited it together in iMovie. You already have a great camera and an eye for photography–you’d make an excellent videographer!
Thanks for reading/watching!
What a beautiful place to vacation Blair! Do you have any suggestions as to where to stay? I would love to stay right on the beach – being able to walk out my door to the sand sounds heavenly.

Hi Shari! It is beautiful indeed. If you’re not traveling with many people, the Litchfield Inn in Pawleys Island is lovely and affordable (and oceanfront!). My parents always rent a house on the marsh a few streets back because my whole family and extended family stays together so we need the space. There are, of course, gorgeous oceanfront houses, but they’re very expensive. If you have it in your budget, you won’t be disappointed! I can’t day enough great things about PI. It’s just beautiful!
