Fun Friday–Site Seeing in Charleston

Friday, July 16, 2010

As part of my book signing/wedding trip to Charleston, S.C., one of the things I wanted to do was see the old part of the city. So Mom and I took a couple of hours on Thursday morning to walk around downtown:

At the suggestion of a friend, we had lunch at The Buccaneer, a pirate-themed restaurant on Faber Street, just one block southeast of the old market. I had the lobster macaroni & cheese and Mom had the shrimp and grits. Both were FABULOUS!

We were going to go to Boone Hall Plantation (better known to many of you as Mount Royal from the Civil War miniseries North and South) but the road was blocked. So we’re going to go today instead.

    The photos are great. I am so envious as I sit here putting off going to bed, knowing I’ll have to get up and clean house tomorrow–ugg. I live vicariously through you. Have a great time. Don’t let me down. 🙂

    I had heard Charleston was beautiful — now I see why. Wonderful pictures. Definitely has the feel of romance to it, doesn’t it? And your bridge video — awesome. It really looks futuristic in places.

    Great photos – but then Charleston is definitely photogenic, isn’t it? Sigh. I love it there. There aren’t may places outside of KY that my husband says he could retire to, but Charleston is one of them. Did you go to the Waterfront Park and see the pineapple fountain? Or see the huge houses on the Battery? If not, they are a must-see. A good friend of mine works for a man who has owned one of those houses, and she said the maintenance was continuous there on the water. But so worth it! Take a carriage ride if you can. They say every tour is different, and the tour guides have to pass a pretty stringent test to be able to even BE a guide!

    Have fun!!
