North to Alaska 2019

Sep 23, 2019 - Charleston, SC

Charleston, SC. Sept 23 We drove downtown to the visitor center and booked the 4 hour Historic City and Fort Sumter Tour through Grey Line.  We had close to 2 hours to wait so walked around on King Street, the main shopping and restaurant area. Then we walked quite a ways to find a bank for more cash...  the bus was small, and only about half full with 11 people. The driver did a wonderful job narrating the city part. We saw so many different styles of architecture in the old buildiIngs.  Some were not too big, but there were so many huge...

Sep 22, 2019 - St. Augustine, FL to Savannah, GA to Charleston, SC

Savannah Sept 22 We left around 8 am and headed from St.  Augustine to Savannah. We drove downtown to the Old Town Trolley and took the tour.  There was so much to see. It was quite warm in the upper 80's but most of the time it was ok as the streets are very shaded from the huge old oak trees.  We saw lots of sites that were used when filming movies, including Chippewa square where Forrest Gump sat on the bench talking (such as, "Life is like a box of chocolates…"  One building had 4 huge stone columns that were made in Vermont, and were...

May 27, 2019 - The Old Days In The Navy

I was stationed in Charleston, SC over 53 years years ago in the Navy. I have not been back to our summer house or winter house in Charleston. This year we went looking for the houses and go on to the Naval base that is long gone. The Naval base was closed down years ago and the main gate to the base is covered over with grass and dirt, no cement roads or gate house. After six weeks of MESS COOKING, I had to get off the ship. With over 1,000 men on board ship it was very hard to sleep or just rest. I would stay in a motel just out the...

Dec 19, 2018 - Charleston Day 2

Marley slept very well all night after all that walking and so we did also. Today we took a ride into Charleston, found a parking place around the City Market Place, and went for a walk through the market and the nearby streets. Later on we went back to Mt. Pleasant to have dinner at Red's Icehouse. We had been there years ago and decided to find the location once again. We went early to try to avoid as much traffic everywhere, as possible. Getting to the restaurant and back wasn't too much of a problem. However, Wednesday must be busier...

Winter2018-2019

Dec 18, 2018 - Charleston, SC

Yesterday we made the trip down US-17 through the hub bub of Myrtle Beach and then through the peaceful countryside below Georgetown and into the total traffic chaos of Mt. Pleasant and Charleston. We made our way across the Ravenal Bridge and across Charleston to James Island County Park. It was a total of 127 miles done in about 4 hours. We've got a secluded, pull-through site here. It's been a sunny, warm, beautiful day but rain is expected for tomorrow and Thursday. The Holiday Light Show begins at 5:30 so we're advised to be in the...

Winter2018-2019

Apr 29, 2018 - Charleston, SC

Since we had spent a lot of time in New Orleans and Savannah exploring the historic areas, we decided to do Charleston a little differently, so we booked a harbor tour on the Carolina Belle. The one and a half hour live narrated tour included up-close views of Charleston's Battery Row (with it's beautiful mansions), Fort Sumter, the Arthur Ravenel cable-stayed bridge, Patriots Point and more. We had a few dolphin sightings along the way and learned a lot about the history of Charleston. After the tour, we decided to check out Charleston's...

Spring 2018 Travels

Jan 27, 2018 - Charleston

We had an excellent breakfast in the hotel, maybe because it’s the weekend but it was the busiest hotel so far. We spent some time walking around the battleship, North Carolina, at Wilmington. We didn’t go on the tour because have been there done that but it was cool to see how it looks like they just backed it into a sliver of water just a little bit wider then the ship. We then drove to Myrtle beach but were a bit disappointed. We seen the coast and beach but the stores along the coast are so junkie and tackie. We did spend quite a bit of...
