The ride over was uneventful except we ran into a detour when we turned off to get on 39. We followed detour signs for quite a while. There were two cars ahead of us. Then the road stopped and you could go either left or right, but both had a detour sign saying no through traffic. The other two cars made a u-turn and went back, but Nancy disregarded the sign and went left. (Our friends, Gail and Paul will appreciate that!) We passed a lot of blockades, but Nancy just kept going through and around them. Susie and I didn't think it was such a great idea, but we got to see a few of the backroads, and guess what? We wound up on SC369 which is where we were supposed to be. We'll never know why there were so many signs.
Nancy heard about a tropical storm on the way over that was headed for Charleston. It's staying off shore, making some beautiful weather. Cool and breezy and NO bugs--great sitting out. We sat out for a while and waited for my brother, Michael, and his girlfriend, Laura. Neither of them had ever been to Charleston--they arrived yesterday morning so they've been busy seeing all they can see in two days. They took a walking tour and said it was wonderful. I think Susie is going to go and take me while we are here. Yeah! We sat and gabbed for a while.

|Nancy said she's going to look on the info sheet to see how many miles or bike trails there are--bet there's a lot.|

Three dolphins passed us as we stood on the dock. Nancy didn't get very good pictures of them, but Michael got excellent video which I'm sure he'll post on Facebook.
