From the Lowcountry of South Carolina we traveled up to the city of Charleston to spend a couple of days.

I have to say Charleston is one of the most walkable cities I’ve ever been to. Our bed and breakfast was located just half a block off King Street (a shopaholic’s dream) - in a large old house with a charming courtyard in the back – and a porch that was perfect for breakfast and afternoon tea.

We walked King Street, walked to the old city Market, to historic houses, to restaurants and to the dock where we caught the ferry over to Fort Sumter and walked some more. It’s a pleasant 30 minute, narrated ride to the Fort with great views of Charleston Harbor, one of the 10 busiest ports in the U.S.

View of the Lowcountry

We were invited to a party. A party down in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. I had been invited there before but the timing was never right and I was never able to make it. This time there were no excuses not to go. It was the impetus for a road trip.

Getting packed
I’m planning a short road trip - heading to Charleston, South Carolina for a few days. I already know it won’t be enough time, but it’s a getaway none the less.  We’re hoping for smooth roads, no traffic jams and of course, good weather.

Road trips call out to a lot of us this time of year, don’t they? Actually, to me it’s more of a scream than a whisper. Come on! What are you waiting for?? Get going! There's nothing like the promise of an open road stretching out in front of you.
