We made the drive in a little under 7 hours which felt like a breeze compared to the trek to New Orleans. Nora was such a little trooper! The weather over the weekend was pretty cold, so we were limited in how much sight-seeing we could do, but we did get a great driving tour of downtown Charleston and several of the surrounding islands. It has definitely whet our appetites to return in the future.
I feel like all we did while we were down there was eat! The food in Charleston is amazing, and Brynn and Lance appreciate good cooking just as much as we do. I guess it must be a Lousiana thing! I kept telling Brynn that Charleston reminded me so much of New Orleans minus the big party scene. There is so much culture and history there, with incredible architecture and beautiful homes and churches. I hope we can tour some of the homes when we return.
Lunch at Poe's Tavern:
Jonathan, Edgar & Lance
Awesome mural of Poe on the fireplace
Nora & Liz
Liz is Brynn and Lance's roommate. She is a resident with Brynn, and her husband lives in Las Vegas. She moved in with them several months back with her dog Punkie (a Welsh terrier). Loved her! She was so much fun and so sweet.
Ellie (Shoe)--sounds like LSU--is Brynn and Lance's beloved chocolate lab. Lance reading to Nora in front of the fire.
Family pic on the beach at Sullivan's Island. I cannot begin to tell you how incredibly freezing it was. We were on the beach for one minute, literally!Nora, Ellie & Punkie
We had such a great weekend! Jonathan and I said several times how neat it was that even though it had been more than a year and a half since we last saw Brynn and Lance, it was like we just saw them yesterday. They are such great friends and were so hospitable! Love you guys!
