For someone who is normally allergic to the heat and humidity and who whines constantly about it when in Canada, this wouldn't be the best place to go, now would it? Oh well never mind, I should come back looking thinner if nothing else as I think I managed to lose 10 lbs in sweat walking about Charleston. Not sure whose bright idea it was to park at the market and then trek the 20 miles to the visitor information centre???? The tourist information person told us we had only walked half a mile, it sure was a long half a mile that's all I can say........and who said I was allergic to exercise!!!
How do you spot a tourist in Charleston?..........They are the only idiots out walking in the heat of the day with bright red faces and sweat dripping off of them.....yep, that would be me!!!
So we had lunch today at Bubba Gump Shrimp Company today, and being the adventurous sorts that we are, we had fish and chips..............don't you want to just smack us. Anyhow we saw these t-shirts and dh was saying he knew a few co-workers that should wear these:
We were told about a dreaded Wal-Mart, so off I trot in there to pick up some beach chairs, now a beach chair has very, very short legs, who knew that?
Which is all well and good, but who is going to haul us out of them??? We need a bit of height to get us hoisted out of them, so we plumped for regular old lawn/deck chairs. At least I am guaranteed to haul my butt of of them, and not end up like a beached whale on the beach.
Oh and I forgot to tell you, there is a special deal on for these units to rent with a 20% discount from now until the end of October. I thought I had paid full price, so off I trot to the rental company this morning to get my extra discount. Turns out they had already given me a 15% discount, but to shut me up I got another 5% discount and $6 credit for the rotten Internet, so it's ended up costing us nothing for the Internet.
So I only took a couple of photos in Charleston today, as honestly I was sweating like a pig and couldn't see anything. This is a photo of the United States Custom House by the port.
And another shot:
Now the posts should get a bit more exciting when we go places. I'm not sure if its the sea air, the heat, or the journey down, but we are pooped. So we may be a day or two before we really get into our visiting places modes. We have bought a few tickets to places, so its just a case of us getting off our butts and going.
And finally a nice shot of the waves.........
