Our trip took us through Jacksonville, N.C., Myrtle Beach, Charleston and on into Savannah. Terry always drives while I sit with the camera in my lap. Still, there are sights you see along the way that go by too fast to capture. Those are the ones that we look at each other and say, "Did you see that?" But, a few I did get.
Near Camp Lejeune this was the first of many times I raised my camera. The side window says "Picking up my Hero"...... Doesn't that just warm your heart?
We have not been to Myrtle Beach since we took our girls there for Spring Break in 1992. That was the year Daughter #1 graduated from high school. Her friends were going places, but this Mama would not let her go party alone, so she invited a friend and we all went on Break together. The other girls were 7 and 9. Boy, have things changed. I know I'm an old fuddy duddy when all the traffic and commotion is too much for me. I have not seen so many miniature golf courses and seafood buffets located in one area. (I'll have more about our buffet experience in days to come.)
So on to Charleston we drove. The closer we got, the more we saw the sweetgrass baskets, for sale, on the side of the road.
They were originally made by the Gullah ladies of the Carolina low country.
Like Myrtle Beach, we have not been back to Charleston since we lived in South Carolina in the early 90s. It is still as wonderful as I remembered it.
Does anyone have any idea what kind of car this is? It was a taxi at the Francis Marion Hotel.
I never get tired of looking at this old architecture
Is this not the most subdued Margaritaville you've ever seen?
Tomorrow we'll do some more sight seeing in Charleston. So many beautiful homes. The City Market and more.
So much to see and so little time to do it in.
