Charleston, SC

Chris and I spent the weekend in Charleston, SC with our friend Grant. It is an absolutely beautiful city full of architecture and character that Fayetteville lacks. We rode the motorcycle there and back…I learned that 3+ hours is just a little too long of a ride for me! We did stop a couple of times each way to make the ride a little more manageable. After we checked into our hotel, we spent time walking around the city and enjoying the sites. We walked over to the ferry for Ft. Sumter but we missed the last one for the day. After that we headed to the City Market for some open air shopping and down to the battery for the stunning Charleston homes. In the evening we had dinner at Rue de Jean, which I would highly recommend, and went to Tommy Condon’s for some live Irish music.
Sunday morning brought more exploring and the ride home. All in all, a great weekend getaway!
