I'm a little behind, but catching up. Thursday we were in Charleston, South Carolina. That is one small town - small in that everything is tight and close together. The first parking structure we tried to park in we almost got stuck with our extended cab truck. Crazy. But we kept trying and found a place that the truck had a few extra inches to get around to park and then walked the rest of the day,

Our first sight out of the parking garage was this fountain in a park along the river/bay. I don't know if you can see the little boys in the fountain, but they were having so much fun running around sticking their heads in each of those sprays as they ran around the circle. Fun  times.

I don't remember what this building is, but the guy out front was in historical garb.

Someone lives here. Pretty, but like I said a tight/small city.

Another fountain. Lots of palm tree and pineapple symbols around the city.

Here's another. Funny thing, all of them had a sign that said wade at your own risk.

A park we walked under the bridge between Charleston and Mt. Pleasant.

USS Yorktown

There is a veteran's memorial in this park.
An interesting statue of a wife of a fallen soldier.

We walked the town, checked out the sights, did a little shopping, ate a late lunch - I had a Fried Green BLT - and then I told Ray that I wanted to get a Moon Pie. So we went to the Moon Pie General Store and bought a couple. They're ok, but not something I'll search out in the future, just something to do when in the south.

The next day we walked Summerville, a small town west of Charleston. We checked out the shops, including a quilt shop, and then walked around looking at the old houses and even an old library. We found out that one of the city buildings had quilts on display and had to check them out too. Oh, and I bought a small quilt at a local boutique. It's not an antique, just a patriotic quilt in time for Memorial Day and July 4th.

Yesterday we arrived in Myrtle Beach. The place is packed with motorcycles - it's the end of bike week here. Last night we had dinner with some friends from LAPD who are here on vacation.
Today we're gonna check out the beach and the local flavor. There are some of those 'shows' like at Branson and Pigeon Forge, but that's not the only stuff here so looks like there's something for everyone.
