When we got back to the camper, Susie took me out, again, and we went all around the lake. Then she and Nancy decided to grab Chic-fil-A and head toward downtown Charleston. Susan had an early dinner date with some college friends (she attended MUSC to become a nurse anesthetist) so we knew we were only going to spend a couple of hours in the city.
The sailboats are gone, but the geese and ducks were at the lake. All of our blogger friends get great pictures of wild life. I sure hope we find some this week.
Once again, Nancy didn't want to take pictures of "Rainbow Row" as those pictures can be seen on any blog that's about Charleston and most places on the web. You watch, she won't be able to resist before the week is out. She took far too many pictures as it is to even try to post, here, but some she couldn't resist. I think she took most of them except the ones of the geese and ducks in the space of a block and a half and couldn't walk any more. Susie stayed with me in the truck. It wasn't long before she came limping back.
|oooohhh...I love when Susie scratches me like that.|
We came across trees that didn't have any bark. To the touch they were very smooth. We wondered what kind of trees they are. Nancy will have to google. There's also a picture of some sort of vine or unusual bush lining the fence in one yard.
Charleston has many churches. Unfortunately to see many of them up close requires parking in a parking deck and walking to them. We already have those kinds of pictures so Nancy thought it might be nice to capture what she could from a distance--the steeples. The statue of Charles C. Calhoun was in a park--didn't have much time because there was no place to park, but Nancy looked it up when we got back to the trailer.
The first picture shows that no matter where you are in Charleston, you are not far from the water. The others are pictures of houses and gardens that Nancy thinks she doesn't have pictures of even after all our trips here.
|Small House, Huh?|
|Nope, this is the rest of it. The 1st picture may have been the servants quarters at one time.|
|Too bad it was garbage day.|
|There are those trees, again!|
Well, if you got this far, there isn't much left to tell. Susie went shopping for a little bit, then we headed back so she could get ready to go out. Nancy and I laid down for a minute and slept for two of hours.
I have some trouble with my back legs, now. Not when I'm walking, but I can't jump up onto the bed any more. The first time I tried and fell, it scared me. But, Nancy and Susie helped me up the next time. Now I just to put my two front feet up and they give me the heave ho from behind. I'll have them fully trained before the week is out.
I'm too tired to proof so I'm going to hope for the best. My eyes are closing and Nancy is half asleep. Susie has been snoozing for a while, now. She said she's going to take me for a nice long walk in the morning. Yipee!!!
