Adam and I just got back from enjoying a few days in Charleston. And can I just say it was delightful? For someone who is decidedly NOT Southern, I really do love southern food. And Charleston has plenty of it. And we pretty much plan our vacations around food, so this was a perfect trip for us. What? Y’all don’t do that? For me, once I finish breakfast, my mind immediately jumps to lunch.
We enjoyed shrimp and grits at SNOB (thanks carpoolqueen!) and some delicious biscuits and fried chicken at Poogan’s Porch.
Besides eating, we basically just walked around and took in the art galleries, boutiques and lovely charm that is Charleston. At one point, I’m pretty positive we walked at least 13 miles looking at obscenely large historic homes. Never one to stay quiet when I could be complaining, I loudly exclaimed to Adam that I could NOT WALK ANOTHER STEP. He laughed and kept going: which is a weird response, if you ask me.
I kept insisting that we had walked at least 13 miles, probably closer to 20. So Adam google mapped it when we got back to the hotel. And google maps said it was only 7.1 miles. But I still maintain that my ACHING FEET and sore muscles are far more accurate indicators of distance. Particularly because I keep them in such tip-top shape by exercising regularly. Or not.
I didn’t take nearly as many pictures as I anticipated I would. Probably because I was missing my favorite subject (Jayci obviously). As it turns out, I don’t look as cute in a sunhat and chubby legs as she does. Anyhow, here is a few of the pictures I DID take. Charleston is a beautiful city. And I enjoyed it immensely, thanks for asking!
*Oh and look what Jayci learned how to do while we were gone. Yup, she can army crawl now . . .and pull herself up to standing, and go from her tummy to sitting up. Geez, you'd think we were gone for 2 weeks and not 2 days!
