Friday, July 31


Misty and I are in Charleston, South Carolina. We had planned this trip for a while, and Seth was originally supposed to come with us. Football, once again, has taken over all his spare time. He had a big three way scrimmage at Midway tonight so he didn't come with us. We got here about 2 this afternoon and checked into the Courtyard by Marriott, on the Ashley River. We then ventured to historic downtown Charleston. We ate at A.W. Shucks and then walked through the Market. Alot of people were packing up and leaving, so we plan to go back earlier in the day. After that, we went down and walked by the water along the Battery. Tomorrow, we plan to go to Folly Beach and maybe take a Carriage Ride Tour of the historic district in the evening. Not sure what else we may do. Below are a few pictures that we took.

There are some very beautiful old houses here.

One of the horse & carriage tours. These houses are really close together. The front of one faces the back of another, with just enough room in between for a driveway wide enough for a single car. You can see that here. There are gates on the driveway that stretch from house to house, and the door by the gate leads up onto the front porch. The United States Custom House on Meeting Street. The Edmondston-Alston House, circa 1825, on East Battery Street. One of the statues in the park along the Battery. Looking out across the water towards Fort Sumter, from the Battery.
There are so many interesting things to see and do in Charleston. I'm sure we won't be able to do as much as we'd like before we leave on Monday, but we plan to do our best. That is, providing Misty learns how to read a map!
