Jamie planned an amazing getaway for our 6 year anniversary. We traveled only an hour north for an overnight stay in Beaufort, SC. My parents came and watched little O for our first overnight stay away from her.
It was storming when we arrived but the rain cleared while we explored downtown and then the sun was out for the rest of our stay.
We stayed at the Rhett House Inn where Forest Gump was filmed. It is a beautiful B&B with an amazing staff.We stayed in room #1 on the main floor that had a beautiful gay window that overlooked the garden.
The grounds of the Rhett House Inn are beautiful. We played croquet and badminton in the afternoon. For dinner, we headed to the waterfront and enjoyed our meal on the patio of the Saltus River Grill. We shared a Gnocchi app, I had a filet and Jamie had Sea Scallops with risotto.
After dinner, we enjoyed a stroll along the Chambers Waterfront Park. Many swings line the waterfront. You can get great views of the Beaufort River, the Woods Memorial Bridge, the western tip of Lady’s Island, the eastern side of Port Royal Island, and the northern tip of Parris Island.
The Rhett House Inn offers complimentary, homemade desserts in the evening. We sampled all four that were offered. So yummy! Jamie said the apple pie was the best he had ever had.
We had complimentary breakfast on the front porch. I had french toast and Jamie had the blueberry pancakes.
After breakfast, we explored downtown on the beach cruisers provided by the inn. I love seeing South Carolina’s second-oldest city and its wonderful historic downtown district. The homes and landscaping are amazing.Before departing, we took a dip in the pool at the Sanctuary Golf Club where the Rhett House Inn guests have full access. Soaked up some rays and then headed back home.
These past 6 years have been amazing. Jamie, you have given me the most precious gift I could have ever asked for, our beautiful daughter Olivia Rose. I love you to the moon and back and can’t wait to grow old with you. No one but you could put up with me this long!
