Charleston Day 1

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:
Waterfront Park:

Rainbow Row:
 Jake and I loved walking around historic Charleston. He said he could go just home afterwards and be happy with the trip.

 The Battery: 

 Walked through the City Market and stopped to play at Tom's Toys:

 hotel pool:

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.
