May 19, 2017 – Mount Pleasant, Summerville, Charleston and Folly Beach, South Carolina One of the most forgotten men at the Constitutional Convention in 1787 is Charles Pinckney.

May 18, 2017 - May 18, 2017 – Mount Pleasant and Sullivan’s Island, South Carolina

May 18, 2017 – Mount Pleasant and Sullivan’s Island, South Carolina Today I spent going to military sites. The 1st place I visited was Patriot’s Point in Mount Pleasant which is on an island across from Charleston. There are 3 ships located there – the destroyer USS Laffey, the submarine USS Clamagore and the aircraft carrier USS Yorktown. I had never been on a destroyer or submarine before so I decided to visit them 1st. I was there shortly after the site opened so neither one was too crowded, which is good since I’m a bit claustrophobic...

Feb 21, 2017 - Carolina Walmarting

. Hazel and I left sunny Florida a couple of weeks ago, traveling 900 miles north to Fredericksburg, Virginia to visit our son Tom and his family. The change in weather was a bit of a shock, the furnace was kicking in on a regular basis, with LP gas consumption of maybe 2 gallons a day when nighttime temps went down in the low 30's or even lower. . Our daughter Sarah bought tickets to a Broadway play, and wanted Mom to come and visit her at her apartment in New York City. I could have put Hazel on a plane or train down in Florida, but Hazel...

Oct 21, 2015 - Driving Miss Daisy

Miss Daisy was the name of my first motorhome and will be the name of every one that I own! It was a pleasant drive down US 17 all day, with just a couple of other roads. I stopped at the visitor center for South Carolina and was advised to take a new bypass around Myrtle Beach to avoid mucho traffic lights. I did that and was happy to skirt a city. But as soon as I got back on 17, road signs said there was construction ahead and suggested an alternate rout of 17 Business. So, I did that and stopped for many lights before being able to get...

Oct 1, 2015 - Camping In The Rain

We were camping at a KOA in Statesville, NC for the night to get some laundry done and check on the weather. The next day I wanted to go west in to Georgia to get away from the low front that was bring in rain to Statesville, NC , it was not heavy rain , just light rain. Checking the weather that night , it seemed that the hurricane was going out to sea and it would miss Charleston , SC. Norma wanted to see Charleston and I gave in so we could see Charleston again. We drove in rain most of the day and arrived at the KOA in the afternoon....

Oct 25, 2012 - Downtown Charleston

John got up early and went to Patriot's Point. He toured the Yorktown carrier, the Laffey destroyer, and the submarine, all of which are open as museums. By the time he came back to Arvy, I was ready for lunch. We walked the dogs, gave them treats, and bedded them down for the afternoon. US17 south crosses the Cooper River into Charleston across the Ravenel Bridge. John and I remember the old bridge...truly an exercise in fear and dread to cross that narrow, shaky steel bridge. The Ravenel is beautiful. Our first objective was lunch at...

Oct 24, 2012 - The Schooner "Pride"

We went sailing this afternoon aboard the three-masted schooner, Pride. We motored out of Charleston Harbor, then set the sails to go out toward the ocean. We didn't go that far, but turned back toward Charleston and sailed in. We left from the dock next to the SC Aquarium. There was a car-carrier loading right next to us on the north side. That was a big, klutzy looking ship. We took lots of pictures...which are worth a thousand of my words. After our two-hour tour, we went back to Mt. Pleasant. Our hosts at the KOA highly recommend a...

Oct 23, 2012 - Mt. Pleasant, SC

Another gorgeous day.... Checkout time from the Hilton Head RV Resort is 1:00 pm, so we slept in a bit, then fixed a good brunch...bacon, eggs, grits, and toast. We left about 12:30 and drove back to the mainland. We took some back roads (instead of I95) through Beaufort to Charleston, then we took I526 around toward North Charleston to Mt. Pleasant and the KOA. Our lot backs up to the lake. We set up, walked the dogs, the rested until time to go to dinner. We drove to Shem Creek and went to our favorite restaurant there...Water's Edge....

Jan 29, 2012 - Boone Hall Plantation Oyster Festival

Sunday January 29th 2012 Lowcountry Oyster Festival Boone Hall Plantation Mount Pleasant, SC 29464 Eighteenth-century satirist Jonathan Swift once wrote: "He was a bold man who first ate an oyster." Perhaps that man was from the Lowcountry, where oysters have been on the menu for hundreds of years. The oyster seems to have earned a passionate spot in the hearts of most Lowcountry residents. The Oyster Fest is a one day tribute to the mighty mollusk so many of us know and love. It is little wonder that the Oyster Festival has been the...

Nov 6, 2011 - To Mt. Pleasant, SC

We decide on a short travel day. In two and a half hours, we are at Mt. Pleasant in SC. Mt. Pleasant is located north of Charleston. There is much we want to see and do here. We find SeeWees. It is a great little restaurant for lunch that used to be a general store. On the way back to the campground, I check out the sweetgrass baskets made in this area. After doing a lot of fact finding at the KOA office, I head to the nature trail. The sign says to stay on the trail. South Carolina has alligators, poisonous snakes and plants. How do the...

Apr 10, 2011 - Water's Edge & Fort Moultrie

Today we joined a long-time friend, Debbie, for a buffet brunch at the Water's Edge Restaurant in Mt. Pleasant. It was good to see her again and to know that she is doing well. Then we rode out to Fort Moultrie on Sullivan's Island. Tuesday, April 12, will mark the 150th anniversary of the firing on Fort Sumter, the beginning of the Civil War. Actors dressed in period attire, including Confederate and Yankee soldiers, are here preparing for a re-enactment of the event. We don't expect to be on hand to witness the 4:30 a.m. firing. Next we...
