Here we are in all our glory on our dinner cruise. This was probably one of the most fun things we've done together. The only thing we wish we had done differently was pay for a private table for 2. We're cheap so that didn't seem like that big of a deal until we were escorted to a table we shared with 2 locals on their 1st Wedding Anniversary. We cruised all around the Charleston Peninsula and to Fort Sumter. My hair doesn't normally have a rooster tail. It was very windy on the water.
These are a few pictures of some of the beautiful, old homes in Charleston. I wish they would ban street parking so that the cars wouldn't taint the beauty of these houses. The plush green trees were almost breathtaking compared to the brown we have here in El Paso. Although, while we were gone, our butterfly bushes and a few little flowers in our front yard bloomed. I think this is a picture of the USS Yorktown from the Charleston Battery.
One of our big purchases while in Charleston was a copy of the picture "The Storm" painted by Jim Booth. I need to take it and get it framed this week so that I can pay homage to the city of Charleston daily!
