it finally stopped raining and Marsha was hungry so we decided to forage for food. We left the hotel and limited our choices to Five Guys or the top of the Bohemian. The Bohemian won out. There was live music and we had cocktails and a snack. Then we walked back to the hotel.
Today, Thursday we piled into the car to go to Charleston and on the way tour a plantation. We didn’t go on 95 and took the scenic route. Boy, it was scenic. We were headed to Beaufort where we thought there would be a plantation. We stopped for directions and three people at the gas station had no idea what a plantation was. But to get to Beaufort the directions were go to the light and make a right. We must have done this st least 10 times all with the same direction; “go to the light and make a right”. Still no Beaufort. Finally we stopped at s fire station, got directions and finally found Beaufort. Beaufort is beautiful – a city full of elegant old houses. Unfortunately it was cold, windy and rainy so we could not fully appreciate this beautiful city. Back in the car to find the Frampton Plantation. We found it!. Nice, but not spectacular. Back in the car and on to Charleston. We are staying outside the city in North Charleston and by the time we got to the hotel we were hungry and tired of traveling. We had dinner and are now in the hotel since it is raining again. Tomorrow we head into the city to be tourists.
