Ahhhh...the smell of the ocean, the beautiful sailboats, the bustle of the city. I love Charleston!
Angela, Lance and I went to the aquarium one morning. Brigette works and attends school downtown, so she was very happy to meet us for lunch in one of the many little restaurants there. (Especially when mom pays, because the cost of school is outrageous!) It was a great day!
We also spent a few days at the beach. Even though the temps were very high, there was always a gorgeous breeze blowing. Lance loved walking and drawing in the sand, as well as, playing with the little sand crabs.
Lance and I went to the local county park to hike a bit, it is a beautiful place with lots of woods and boardwalks over the marsh. We ended up leaving not too long after we arrived because of the attack of killer mosquitoes. I really thought that at one point we were going to be lifted up and taken their hideout to be interrogated.
The week ended by spending some time visiting with David's mom and dad. It had been way too long since we saw them. They too, came to spend some time with the kids over the fourth of July holiday. David barbecued and Angela set a lovely table. I, of course, forgot to pull out my camera and get a few pics, but the memories will always be with me.
The only down side of the whole visit was Oliver (our dog) getting kennel cough. I bet you didn't know that even if a dog is vaccinated, they can still get kennel cough. Go figure.
Lance and I are now counting the days until December when we will be returning to Charleston. Brigette will be graduating from the College of Charleston!! Yea Brig!!!
