We drove out to Isle of Palms this afternoon. Here's a picture of my
boat. We saw lots of big houses ot by the ocean.

We had lunch today at Hymans. It is one of the top seafood places in
the area. Very good lunch.

This AM we toured Magnolia Mansion. It was a rice growing plantation
originally built in early 1800's. The original house was burnt during
the civil war. As you can see, it was rebuilt. We took a tour of the
house as well as a tour of the grounds. Saw a few critters including
alligators.

Here is another beautiful old mansion (Pardon the tree).
We had lunch today at the Charleston Tea Company (sandwich) and dinner
at Jim and Nicks ( excellent BBQ). Right now we are in our hotel room
blogging, journaling, and watching Dancing with the Stars. Yes, I
know, we're getting old.

This is just one of the many old mansions we saw in Charleston today.
It is a nice town, lots of large older homes, lots of shopping, has a
large wharf with a number of yachts.

Tomorrow we are going to tour a rice plantation. We will spend another
night in Charleston and then on to Myrtle Beach before heading back to
San Antonio. It's been a great vacation but we (at least me) are
becoming a little road weary.

Drove out to Tybee Island today. Walked out on the beach and had lunch
there. Went to Savannah Riverwalk to see shops, etc. Took driving
tour of Savannah. Saw lots of old mansions. We are now back at the
room to rest up before heading to dinner. Saved $75 by just following
the tour bus. Leona and Phyllis are such cheapskates.

We are on the elevator going up to the 3rd floor of Paula Deens
restaurant. We had a absolutely fabulous dinner. It was as if each
item on the menu was the best that I had ever eaten.

We are now back at the room relaxing and letting our dinner digest. I
think we may have made pigs of ourselves.
