When we woke up this morning, it was pouring down rain, so I thought the day might consist of just hanging out in the hotel room and watching movies or something since Steve had to work all day today. But by the time I got up and got dressed, the rain had stopped and the clouds were clearing!
Even though I was by myself I didn't let that stop me. I had planned on taking a horse and buggy ride while we were here, but I heard that the walking tours of Charleston are really informative and more in depth, so I decided to do that today. On my way out the door, I had to stop by the coffee bar in our hotel. It smells so good everytime I get off the elevator. So I had my coffee in hand and was off!
The tour I went on was sooo interesting. Our tour guide was amazing and very friendly. He made Charleston really come alive. The tour was two hours long and I am such a nerd...I was taking notes the whole time so I could tell Steve everything I learned! If you are ever in Charleston, I would totally recommend the Tommy Dew Walking Tour. He is an expert on anything you might want to know and so friendly, too! (I didn't take this picture, but this is Tommy leading a tour!)
One thing you just have to accept here in Charleston is that you ARE going to sweat all day and there are pretty much no good hair days here. haha I just came to terms with that and it made for a much happier day.
After the tour, I stopped by Jim 'N Nick's Barbeque for lunch and had a yummy salad with smoked turkey. That place just smells so good when you are walking by, it just draws you in. I ate my salad and talked on my cell phone to Ashley who was interviewing in Charlotte today for some open teaching positions. Please pray for her! She just wants a job somewhere!! :)
When I got back to the hotel, it was time to hit the pool. I took my book and my drink and it was perfect. I LOVE lying by the pool with a good book!!
When Steve got back from work, we got dressed and went to dinner. Here we are as we were leaving the hotel.
After dinner we went on a horse and buggy tour, so I got to do that after all!
Our tour guide had just graduated from USC about two years ago and was a history major so he was really fun and informative! We learned alot and it was relaxing just to sit and ride around.
After our tour, we got our favorite mint chocolate chip hot fudge sundae at Haagan Daaz! We always love those! Since I had been out all day, I was ready to come back to the hotel and just watch a movie and hang out, so that's what we are doing tonight!
