We are in Charleston, SC today, just arrived a bit ago. Frank has some business here just a short time, then we’ll be out and about doing things. I’ve been here twice before, in the area, but didn’t do anything really, so this’ll be my first REALLY good look at Charleston.

We were maybe going to go to Savannah this weekend, but ended up here. S is one of my favorite places now, so hopefully we’ll get to get there sooner than later. Both here and there have minor league baseball, we are going to a game here tomorrow. In S we haven’t seen a team there yet. We saw the Smokies in Kodak TN on July 4th. That was AA ball. This here is A ball, in the carolinas and georgia. Frank and I used to go to minor league games (Rookie League) in S. Fl when we lived there, all the time in our first few years of knowing each other. In fact Frank asked me to marry him, right before leaving for a game, was supposed to ask me there but lost it and asked me right in the driveway of my parents house, before pulling out. πŸ˜‰

That was over 13 years ago already. Our anniversary is in August, not listed on the sidebar dates to remember. Frank noticed that, but I haven’t loaded it. It just doesn’t seem I have the right language to use to notify the public about it there πŸ˜‰ It’s a duo-oneflesh-event, but I don’t like using a personal “my anniversary” or an “our anniversary” label, it’s more than that. Anyhow, it’s the 22nd of August, origins from 1992. That really has nothing to do with this post, just that I’m talking of minor league ball and that connects to our early years and how we got engaged and such, so it IS connected, yet not, yet is … πŸ˜†

Here are a few pictures from the hotel room: (edited down in size temporarily while away with ‘Windows Paint’, icky quality, sorry, to be reloaded as nicer quality later)

From the Hotel Window

Storm growing over hotel

The children looking out the hotel window

A clearer view just a bit later

Out the hotel window after the storm cleared out, not much later. From our 5th floor room.


We will be looking around Charleston tonight and tomorrow, that’s Friday night and Saturday. Don’t know for sure what we’ll see, but I hope to see at least one plantation in the area. Audobon sanctuaries are at two of them, from what I read in some brochures. With my new Canon Digital Rebel I could get some great shots I imagine. So we’ll see as to what we decide to do and what that might bring me to opportunity of photographic delight. πŸ™‚
