The trip for Spring Break this year was to Charleston, South Carolina. I had been told by many it was great; and they were right. Charleston ranks up there in the top sites I have visited in the United States. It was another fun-packed trip by the girls. In the five days that we were there, we experienced all the following:
Four plantations – Boone Hall, Drayton Hall, The Charleston Tea Plantation, and Middleton Plantation
Six Historical homes
A 3 ½ walking historical tour of the city with Ed Gamball – Rainbow Row, Battery Park
Two Forts – Fort Moltrie and Fort Sumter
Two Museums – The Slave Museum and The Old Exchange and Provost Dungeon
The Angel Oak – two times
Two neighboring towns - Beaufort and Sullivan Island
The bridge - Arthur Ravenal Bridge
Some our trips food is not important, but this one was different. We did have one good meal per day. I ate seafood at a well-known restaurant in the area every day. Another slight difference that got me in trouble was that I noticed that we did spend more time this trip looking for our personal things – keys, cameras, glasses, tickets, etc.
As I always say, I am so blessed to have the opportunity to travel and to learn history. It is a shame that I just can’t remember all the wonderful details and facts I hear on each of our journeys. Also I am fortunate to travel with my sister and a good friend. What great memories.
