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...

Oct 8, 2010 - Boone Hall Plantation

Today we visited Boone Hall Plantation near Charleston, SC. I'd have to give it mixed reviews, especially after seeing the "historic mansion". Only four rooms on the bottom floor were on the guided tour; the home is still in active use - although I don't know when the occupants would ever get a chance to visit without bumping into tourists - and the top two floors were not on the tour. Turns out that the house is not really historic after all, since this last reincarnation was built in 1935. Nice, but not on a par with other truly historic...

Here we are in Charleston, SC. Just met some folks in the next door camper who are going to visit Bemidji this summer! Small world. Got some cute pictures of "twin" dogs to put on later.

Wow... who knew there was this much to do!! ^_^ We've pulled our little baby Airstream in between two Wanderlodge class As... read Prevost... read over the...

After all the rain for the last few days, I feel like the ducks that live in the lake here at the K.O. A.. This KOA is very nice and close to all the things that you want to do around Charleston, SC.
