Vacation Update

Saturday was spent shopping in downtown Charleston, first at Marion Square, then at the Marketplace; we didn't buy anything, nothing caught our fancy. Lunch was at Noisy Oyster, which my sister had recommended. I had a rather ordinary oyster po' boy, Sara had a spicy chicken sandwich that she didn't much like. We also had crab dip, which Sara also disliked, but I had no problem with.

After a trip to the hotel to freshen up we headed south toward Hunting Island State Park, but were turned back not far from Beaufort, SC, by torrential rain and thunderstorms.

Today (Sunday) we headed south to Charles Towne Landing State Historic Site, which, after the rains of the previous evening, was extremely humid and unpleasant. Since most of the site involved walking, we had to cut the visit short, because we were both sweating and dehydrating. We then decided to cruise around Mt. Pleasant a bit, and found our way to Fort Moultrie, which we decided to visit. We again had to cut the visit short because of the extreme heat and humidity, both of us wilting. We made a trip to the hotel to freshen up, then went antiquing, which was indoors and in air conditioned buildings. After antiquing we drove around for a while, scouting likely supper locations. We're currently back at the hotel, preparing for supper. Catch all of you later.
