Mt Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park under the Ravenel Bridge:
Patriot's Point where we toured the USS Yorktown aircraft carrier among other things:
Jake had to duck a lot on the ship:
Riverfront Park in North Charleston:
back at the hotel playing with the mini dollhouse Amelia bought at the Patriot Point gift shop. Gavin bought a paracord bracelet:
Also to remember: Jake and Gavin checking out the cool Vietnam exhibit (while Amelia and I waited at the picnic tables in the shade); lunch at Melvin's Barbecue. Possibly the best meal of our lives. Definitely the best cheeseburger, onion rings, and chicken fingers; Jake and Gavin buying shoes at the sketchers outlet, Amelia and I bought cookies.
We took a whirlwind trip to Charleston over fall break. We got there around noon on Monday and left Wednesday morning at 6:30 to beat hurricane Michael home. We had to cut our trip short - we didn't go to the beach or take a planned boat ride- but luckily we didn't receive any damage from the hurricane, and even our power stayed on.
First stop was the Angel Oak on the way into town:
gelato for lunch:
Jake and I loved walking around historic Charleston. He said he could go just home afterwards and be happy with the trip.
Walked through the City Market and stopped to play at Tom's Toys:
Other things to remember: free samples of pralines, fried peanuts, and key lime cookies; hot but super breezy; Amelia spending her money on a yellow fan at city market; dinner at CiCi's followed by my scary fall in the parking lot; Gavin buying a watch; watching car tv shows in the hotel before bed.
