|We met Miss Piggy when we were loading up the washer and dryer...|
On Wednesday night, we to go hang out and watch tv and melt off our skin in the hot tub and enjoy adult beverages. We went to bed super late, but it was ok since we only have to drive 4.5 hours to Charleston the next day rather than having to be on the road for 10+ hours. Bleh.
We were on the road by 1100 so we could make it by the afternoon. The worst realtor ever informed me that the keys would be waiting on us at the house and she gave us the code to the door lockbox. The only reason we had been on a time schedule was because we thought we were going to finally meet this lady in person. It wasn't to be. Which was probably more for her benefit than ours.
|Woooo!!!! FINAL DESTINATION STATE!!|
|Saw this at a gas station, thought it was pretty awesome.|
When we finally arrived in Charleston, we had some issues with the lockbox, primarily the inability to open it since we hadn't been educated on HOW to actually open the stupid box. Did I mention worst realtor ever? I was not joking. We got everything unloaded from the truck and then we looked at each other and decided to go out since sitting in an empty house was boring.
|Home sweet home!|
Since Mr. Mystery had been stationed in Charleston before, he was knowledgeable on the area and was able to give me a driving tour of downtown. He also was able to pick a place for dinner with very little debate.
|The tavern preserves the memory of Edgar Allan Poe,|
who was stationed near Sullivan Island when he enlisted in the Army.
|The men's restroom was more impressive because the raven.|
We had relatively minimal difficulty parking and we walked in the door right on time as we were seated within 5 minutes and we watched people start to line up at the door after we were seated. Whew! The food was delicious, and they had a burger with egg, which is always a winner in my book.
After dinner, we made a Walmart run for necessities like an air mattress (aka Mr. Mystery's sleeping trampoline) and laundry detergent and things.
|Charleston sunsets seem to be rather gorgeous.|
Prepare for a lot of these!
Mr. Mystery had to be at work on Friday, which meant that Thursday's adventures were the last of his vacation. Fortunately, it wasn't the end of my vacation!!!
