Charleston - Day 1

Whew! What a busy weekend we had.

Here are some pictures from our first day down in the Low Country of South Carolina.

Got to the hotel. 


Did a little outlet shopping.

Headed into town to walk around & explore.  It's so beautiful. 


Went to The Market. 
 So many great things for sale and watching the people work on their baskets was fascinating. 


More walking around in awe of this beautiful city.
We couldn't fit in a horse drawn carriage tour this trip but we're definitely heading back sometime soon.



Did a little browsing.


Then we headed to dinner at Bubba Gump's.


Mimi and her Bucket o Trash.

My Shrimp & Grits


Then we went back to the hotel for a little swimming with friends and to rest up for the next day's competition.


What a great first day in such a beautiful city. 

Stay tuned for Day 2 coming up soon and believe me, there will be lots of drool worthy architecture involved.

Hi!
I linked up to your cute blog from Darlene's, and I have to say.."love it"!
What a fun trip! Even though I've never had shrimp and grits, I'm thinking I would love it!
Also, what an odorable dog. We are quite smitten with border collies :)
Have a wonderful day.

Hi!
Just had to laugh at your border collie loving empty plastic bottles. So does our Rowdy. What funny dogs.
I love the picture of your yellow house! Your family is adorable!
We are getting snow...again.
Sure wish Spring would hurry up and get here!
Have a great weekend.
