After dinner at 82 Queen, we walked past the Savannah Bee Company. I was devastated that we were too late to shop, since it was so exciting. We are very big fans of honey and all of its variety, it is a wonderful pairing with our love of cheese. Luckily, we steered back that way the next morning while we were exploring the historic district of Charleston and were able to visit.

The store is beautiful inside, a combination of charming design and lovely products.

The tiny door!

The amount of products that result from a mutually-beneficial relationship with bees is wonderful and fascinating.

The Savannah Bee Company does make many products of their own, but they also have other bee-centric products.

Honey gear behind the HONEY TASTING BAR! We tried a number of different types of honey, and again, if you haven’t done this, I highly suggest it. Different honeys from different bees that were exposed to different plants are incredibly varied!

The perfect lighting.

I didn’t even know where to look first. How beautiful is this display?

Remember when I mentioned about charming design? Part of that is putting humanity into the store. Handwritten signs, and the honesty on the sign for the “not square” honeycombs all add to the happy feeling I had in this store.

Thumbs up for their branding and packaging.

Just more honey photos, because I couldn’t stop!

The different shapes of the different bottles also added to the visual impact. I especially like the tall and skinny large bottles.

Naturally, the window was decorated beautifully as well.

I recommend stopping in at one of the Savannah Bee Company locations whenever you get a chance.

Charleston, South Carolina | In My Travels

I had only visited Charleston once before we stopped there again in December. The first time, it was a stop where we drove around, got out of the car, looked around, took photos, enjoyed the experience, and then got back in the car and continued on our road trip. We had always planned to come back, and it took until our road trip to Florida that we made it happen. We spent a lovely day traveling only 2 hours from Myrtle Beach to Charleston, stopping at Huntington Beach State Park on the way. We arrived at the Doubletree in the Historic District, handed over the car keys, and ventured out pretty soon thereafter. We were not able to get a dinner reservation on a Sunday at Husk, but we did manage to have a nice dinner together at 82 Queen.

The next morning, we requested a late check-out, and ventured out in the daylight to check out the historic Charleston City Market, and the surrounding area.

Everything was decked out for the holidays, naturally.

Caviar & Bananas for breakfast.I loved the organization and branding of this cafe in the market!

I love this picture that I took while we were waiting for our coffees.

The buildings aren’t connected throughout, this is one of the crossing spots.

I need to fix whatever mindset I’m in when I am in a different place that says “no you don’t need that thing that seems really specific to the place you are in,” because why didn’t I buy the pork rinds? I don’t really think I want pork rinds, but from a legit bbq purveyor? Those were probably amazing.

I loved this sassy mannequin.

I think we have now added Charleston to our list of favorite cities in the United States.
