We departed Charleston with a plethora of fondly remembered experiences under our belt, and we set sail for St. Augustine, Florida. (Actually, we drove.)

One of our first objectives was to hunt down the Crave Food Truck, since we had seen so many local foodies gushing over it online. We're happy to report that the food IS as delicious, fresh, and wholesome as we were led to believe. Not only that, but the crew seems to really enjoy their jobs and appreciate your business. We were thanked at least four times before we left, and in a world that has grown accustomed to casual indifference, the positivity of this interaction was even more refreshing than the real fruit smoothies.

While we were there, we enjoyed some vegetable and hummus wraps, (fully customizable of course!), chips and smoothies. A no-nonsense strawberry banana, and a more intricate blend of chocolate, cinnamon, and banana, with added protein powder and topped with cacao nibs. That's a first for me - wow!

To summarize, the Crave Food Truck is absolutely worth your time if you're in or around St Augustine.

After a long day of strolling the streets of Charleston, we decided to check out the Mellow Mushroom for dinner. The homemade hummus and bruschetta were fresh and well-spiced with bold flavors. We also had some custom made calzones, and a particularly intoxicating (both meanings implied) "Elderberry Palmer," a smooth and refreshing blend of Maker's Mark, St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur, fresh brewed tea, and lemon. It was only after we left that we realized there are more of these laid back, eclectically decorated, pizza purveyors sprinkled throughout the Southeast. We may have to return for a repeat performance before the end of our #hangoutfestipalooza2015 adventure.

This is the magnificent "Angel Oak" tree on Johns Island just outside Charleston. It's nearly 400 years old, and its shade covers an area of 17,000 square feet! Notice the teeny tiny people in the picture to get a sense of how massive and sprawling this tree is. There was nowhere you could stand to fit the whole thing in one shot. Unbelievable!

Contrasting shapes and colors from the streets of Charleston, South Carolina. We had so much fun walking around King St. and the surrounding area, looking at beautiful old buildings, art galleries and cute boutiques.

The first leg of our #hangoutfestipalooza2015 road trip brought us to Charleston, South Carolina. We stayed at the nearby Mt. Pleasant KOA. This is our temporary home, and the view we wake up to each day. Glorious!

We departed from our home in New York Friday evening, and drove for thirteen hours straight in the next leg of our #hangoutfestipalooza2015 road trip. We arrived in Charleston South Carolina just in time for some delicious breakfast courtesy of Diggity Doughnuts. They had so many tasty flavors, we had to sample one of each.

...

...and a chocolate banana soy milkshake.

Yay healthy breakfast!

First stop on our #hangoutfestipalooza2015 road trip! DiBella's Old Fashioned Subs! Fresh baked homemade bread piled half a foot high with toppings. I can't think of better road trip fuel.

Carbonated iced teas from Lipton! My younger self used to mix raspberry Brisk tea with Sprite whenever I had access to a soda fountain. It's nice to see someone finally capitalize on my brilliant idea! #drinks #tasty #food #bubbly #ticklesmytongue
