Summer Bucket List: Review

Well, it might not feel like it since it's not dropping below the mid-80s anytime soon, but I guess since Labor Day came and went, fall is on the horizon.  I thought it'd be fun to see how we did with our bucket list this summer.  I feel like we've done so much in almost 4 months, though we still have a few things I'd like to accomplish this fall:

- Try 5 new Charleston restaurantsMellow MushroomSmashburger (a little bit of a cheat haha), California Dreaming, Santi's, Baguette Magic, Yo Bo, Andolini's Pizza, and Poogan's Porch
- Parasail: Check!
- Start an herb garden
- Cook dinner and s'mores on the charcoal grillCheck
- Jet-ski: Third time's a charm and it didn't rain last weekend!
- Run 10 miles each week I'm up to about 8 a week, and I did sign up for the Princess Half weekend, so I keep training over the next 5 months.
- Visit a new museum in Charleston: Fort Sumter and the SC Aquarium
- Play golf at least twice a week: Once to twice a week all summer was pretty good for us!
- Run at least 1 race It's too hot to race in the summer, but we are signing up for this one in November.
- Play tennisCheck
- Pick fresh fruitCheck
- Play lots of cards: Uno, Phase 10, and cribbage have been our games of choice this summer
- Bike ride One of these days our bikes will make it off the porch
- Visit every brewery in Charleston: Half check: We've been to Holy City, Palmetto, Coast, and Westbrook.  Still need to do Freehouse, Revelry, and The Frothy Beard - did I miss any?
- Explore Edisto IslandCheck
- Learn about living on a boat: We have looked into it a lot, but still trying to see if it's for us.

And other fun things we did this summer: paddleboarding, new recipesHootie and the Blowfishduck rescuing, and trips to New England and Cooperstown!

Good job! That's a lot of stuff you've done!

When did you learn how to play golf? I really want to know how to play, but it intimidates me...
