Summer Vacation 2012 - South Carolina

Thursday morning we hit the road early to make it down to South Carolina in time for dinner with some of our best friends, Dr. C and Mrs. S!  We ate at our first Mellow Mushroom and it was delicious! We stayed up late catching up just like we had seen each other the day before. They are such great friends.

On Friday morning we took a day trip to Charleston. What a B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L city! We will definitely be going back there for a longer trip next time.

We walked all around the city and down by the harbor. Lunch was at an amazing little restaurant called Jestine's Kitchen. Fried green tomatoes, fried okra, corn bread, fried chicken, oyster po'boys, and coca cola cake were had by all! And don't forget the sweat ice tea... which I still don't like.

Market street had a bunch of little shops and I purchased my obligatory traveling angel ornament for my angel Christmas tree. We window shopped on the long walk back to the car and looked at multi-million dollar houses we imagined owning one day... yeah, right!
Every time we are with this couple, it is so easy to imagine living nearby. Where is that perfect world where you can have your dream job, a great house, your family down the street, and all your friends living nearby? I wonder if that will ever happen for us.

After dinner at a Mexican restaurant we headed back to their place and watched Disney's "Puss In Boots"... without little Miss C. Yep, 4 grown adults watching the silliest little kitty movie. We had been watching snippets on the drive to keep Miss C occupied so after some margaritas it seemed like a good idea. Too funny! It was a great visit and we can't wait to see them again soon.
