Fun in Charleston

Thursday, April 3, 2014

Last week was really a jammed pack week in Charleston. John and I did more than I think we've ever done in the city before. So I figure I'd share some of our adventures with y'all.

We went down to the Mount Pleasant Pier which is directly under the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge. It was pretty cool going there because it had a nice park before you got to the pier plus there were tons of places to sit and watch the river or have lunch. And of course you could fish.

Later on in the week we went to downtown Charleston and rode the trolley around the downtown area. I loved getting to go there so much. I want to head back down to the downtown area and just walk around when we have more time. I didn't really get many pictures of the area, but maybe next time.

Friday we had our wonderful tour of the C-17 but we also went bowling that night. It was so much fun. John beat my butt the first game but I got him the next few games. I just needed a little time to warm up. My first game wasn't that great 97, but in the second two I actually scored above 100 (136 and 128). I was very proud of myself. I hope we can go bowling more often. It was like $9 per hour plus shoe rental.

I'm really glad I made so many great memories this past week. The whole trip wasn't perfect but it's nice when the good times far outweigh the bad ones.
