Sailing Away off Bald Head Island

When I checked the Bald Head Island Limited site for things to do on the island, one of the first things that caught my eye was a sailing excursion with Riverside Adventure Company & Sail Shop. Their website advertised two hour Funsails aboard their 26' J80 Sailboats, and I envisioned a leisurely sail taking in the scenery and the sunshine while our guide sailed along off Bald Head Island. What I didn't expect was getting the chance to sail the boat myself, and arguably, that wasn't even the highlight of the outing.

Bald Head Island...Do We Really Have to Leave?

If you've ever seen the movie Weekend at Bernies, a film about two guys who get invited to their boss's beautiful beach house for the weekend, you've seen Bald Head Island. Portions of the movie were filmed there. Aside from the strange plot twist the guys encounter along the way, the island is quite lovely. You could easily see why the boys wouldn't want to leave. After visiting Bald Head Island in North Carolina for myself, I can commiserate with them. We didn't want to leave either.

New Adventures at the East Coast Paddlesports & Outdoor Festival

One of the things I love about the East Coast Paddlesports and Outdoor Festival is that each year I attend, I find something new that I would not have necessarily thought of trying myself. Last year, it was shooting a bow and arrow and riding a mountain bike across a seesaw. This year, it was sailing in a kayak and getting a fly fishing lesson.

Blackwater Kayaking from a Pearl Girl's Perspective

I’ve never really been the “outdoorsy” type. Growing up as an only child and a girly girl, the biggest adventure I ever had was staying in my grandparents’ camper in a state park. That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy being adventurous, but I was just never exposed to hiking or canoeing or anything that required me to rough it for a while. In general, I’m not the toughest person when it comes to nature and the elements. So when I was given the opportunity to participate in a guided kayak tour this week, I was naturally a little wary.

Getting Over It: The Cooper River Bridge Run 2014

When my alarm clock went off at 5:30 a.m. Saturday, I thought there was a fire truck in my room. It’s now that time of year in Charleston when the flowers start blooming and it’s warm enough to lay in the sand on Sullivan’s Island, and there are events every single weekend. All of these things are wonderful, except when you work in the travel and tourism industry! The last few weeks have been very busy for me, which caused me to neglect much of my running and training. I was apprehensive about how I would perform in the Cooper River Bridge Run with so little preparation. Needless to say, when my alarm was blaring before the crack of dawn, I was less than excited to jump out of bed and run 6.2 miles over the longest cable-stayed bridge in the country.

Client Testimonials

  • A Charleston resident suggested a Traveling Ink concierge might be able to help me. It didn’t take long for me to realize that this was one of the best pieces of advice I could have received. My friends thought I was an organizational wizard even though I kept telling them it was Traveling Ink, not me.

    ~ Nicky H.
  • We so enjoyed our time in Charleston. Thank you for all your insight! I am recommending your services to everyone I know who is traveling to Charleston!

    ~Kathryn C.
  • Traveling Ink planned the three full days we would have in Charleston, how we would get from one place to another, places to eat, and what the costs would be. To add to the challenge, we had to change the day of one of the main attractions because rain had been predicted. They handled all the changes with out missing a step.

    ~ Harriett H.
  • These Charleston pros do a phenomenal job in any setting. Audra was our point person and is a pleasure to work with. She is laid back and can work with any request.
