Welcome to Charleston, South Carolina, which according to the AAA maps we have with us, is in the South. Then why oh why did we wake up this morning to a temperature of 37 degrees??? Even now, as we approach the dinner hour, it’s only 48 degrees! What the heck is going on with Mother Nature!!
Today, after breakfast at the hotel, we started our day at the Charleston Museum, America’s First Museum!This is housed in what was Charleston’s first train station. After looking at some of the exhibits, we caught our City Tour from Adventure Sightseeing!
Our tour guide was very knowledgable about Charleston and it’s history, and provided us with a very good tour of many of the high points of the city. Among the highlights was the Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina…..
Along the way, we passed a horse drawn carriage tour, which would have been a great way to see the city, but frankly they looked a bit cold! Glad for our bus!
We returned to the Visitor’s Center, saw some Sea Grass Baskets being made, and watched a movie about Charleston’s past.
Having been fully submerged in the history of the city, we decided to cross the street and head back to our hotel and a late afternoon libation and to put our feet up!
And that’s how we spent our day in the frozen South!
