In The South.

I'm not sure if this is the Deep South or not, so I'm just going to call the Carolinas the South. :-)

We left PA a week ago Wednesday and it was nine degrees - as in cold! Tomorrow the high is supposed to be 78 in Charleston, South Carolina. I was actually borderline hot today as we walked a couple of blocks to get lunch. *Happy sigh* There's a reason we are not called to a cold climate!

We've really enjoyed our stay in Charleston so far, including staying at a bed & breakfast/inn that had this huge bed in it! I was also adventurous and tried grits once more (my verdict has not changed - no thank you!). Charleston is a terrible city to drive around since there are carriage tours everywhere, so we put in a lot of walking and enjoyed taking the boat to Fort Sumter, which is on an island.

Paul was a fantastic baby all day long and was a huge hit on the boat... not too hard when you're the only kid in the entire place!

More adventures await us in the morning!

Grits? No thank you! I'm with ya.
I have never been to Charleston but I've heard that it's lovely.

I used to think that Texas was deep south until I went to the real deep south on the East coast and yea, Texas isn't deep south.

Glad you had a good time and the little man us adorable.

I've been enjoying reading of your travels while on deputation. I picked up your blog from Nina's blog. I had to chuckle when I read your weather description...it's currently 4 degrees here in MN:) I'm looking forward to meeting you all at the end of April! May the Lord give you all safety in travel as you continue on the road!
