After showers, Susan went running, etc., and I cleaned up the trailer. I was trying to get my new drill to work--not having much success. I had a very simple one, but I misplaced the charger and I am not going to wind down the stabilizers--that's for sure, so I went to a Lowes which isn't far from here and bought another Black & Decker. I was sure I'd find the charger, today, but no luck after emptying everything I knew to empty. Did I tell you this, yesterday? LOL
We went for lunch at Kickin' Chicken--nothing to write home about except for the sweet potato fries. The traffic in Charleston is incredible and trying to find a parking space is next to impossible, but we did it the second time around the block-pure luck. I have so many pictures of the famous homes and churches in Charleston that I thought it might be nice to see other side streets. I'm hoping tomorrow will be a better day for walking when I can really enjoy. Plus our bus tour is on Wednesday and the Harbor Tour on Thursday. I don't remember taking many pictures of the cemeteries, but they are picturesque. Some of the monuments must have cost a fortune.
After walking, we stopped in a little restaurant called Low Country. Susan had a glass of wine and I had a coke. We met a charming young girl who was the bartender. In talking, she said her folks came from Long Island--small world. That's where I'm from.
We are back at the campground for a little while, then going to dinner at the Brick House. It was new the last time we were in Charleston. Two young women opened it and the meal was delicious. The decorated with things from Good Will and Second Hands stores--no two chairs or tables matched, and it looked so charming. I'm pretty sure I took pictures last time, but I'll try to get some tonight.
|See the horse and carriages on most all the streets. I feel sorry for the horse which is why I chose a bus tour.|
|Churches right next to one another.|
|Almost seems like they squeeze cemeteries in|
|The side of the church that is rarely seen in pictures.|
|Cute little house--I was going to say shotgun house, but I think they are only one story.|
|Sleeping porches are very prevalent in Charleston. The summers are very hot and humid so I can understand why. They add so much charm to the homes.|
|I thought this headstone was interesting. The bird is a South African bird called the Sankofa Bird. It's looking back over it's shoulder because it is learning from the past to move forward.|
|This was an odd cemetery. Had monuments like this one that must have cost a fortune, yet the cemetery was not kept up well, at all.|
