We left on Wednesday morning and spent the next three days and two nights touring the city with the kids. Dan and I have been there many times before but this was the first time we took the kids.
After we arrived, we checked in to our hotel and then took the kids to lunch at Poogan's Porch. This is where Dan proposed to me in 1999!
So we took a picture in front of the restaurant.
After the carriage ride, we took a quick walk through the market and then headed back through the town to the battery. We also stopped in at the graveyard of the Circular Church. We always stop in at old graveyards!
We had a late dinner at Tommy Condon's and then took an evening walk through the city and headed to bed.
We were up early on Thursday morning and headed to The Charleston Tea Plantation. But first, we stopped off at the Angel Tree. It's a 400 year old Live Oak tree. And it is magnificent. These pictures do not do it justice.
Then it was off to the Charleston Tea Plantation. This was a wonderful tour. We got to see a working tea plantation (the only one in mainland North America) and learn all about how tea was made. And there were lots of samples of tea!
After breakfast on Friday morning, Dan and Peter headed to Ft. Moultrie and Sarah and I did some shopping in the market - she wanted a new ring. We also enjoyed some lattes.
And then we headed home!
And the nice part about it all? Is that now it's Monday morning and the kids still have this whole week off from school! Unfortunately, Dan is back and work. It was a nice little vacation and I'm glad the kids got to experience Charleston!
