Taylor Swift Frolics On The Beach In Polka Dot Bathing Suit (PHOTOS)

There's no doubt that Taylor Swift could charter a private yacht anywhere in the world but, being the down home Southern gal she is, Swift's ideal place for a quick vacation is Charleston, South Carolina.

The sweet as pie singer recently took her on-stage fiddler player, dancers and aerialists for a girls getaway where the group frolicked on the beach, marveled at pelicans and documented every minute of it -- taking pictures being the hobby that Swift is currently obsessed with.

"I'm a girl of many phases," Swift explained on her website. "Sometimes I work out, sometimes I don't, sometimes I listen to music constantly, sometimes I become obsessed with a piece of advice I'm given, sometimes I want to do nothing but watch Friends marathons, sometimes I write in my journal every night, then I'll skip a month.. And sometimes I take lots of pictures of what's going on in my life. For these three days, that's what I did."
