Showing Grammalyn a Little Bit of Charleston!

Today we thought it would be a great day to go to Charleston! And it was!
We found great parking at St. Philip's Church parking lot.
Sorry about the date stamp. Mark and Lon got me a new camera for Christmas, and I did not turn off the date stamp!
We went on a carriage ride. They pack alot of history into the hour. There are three tour routes, so far, Mark, Lon and I have done numbers 2 and 3!
This is Steve's backend.
The next series of  pictures are going to be the things we saw along the way.
All the marble around the windows! and Santa butt.

I took this photo to show off the climbing roses that are blooming on December 27!
There was only one decoration on this house, but they made it count!
I like this basket display
The family with Steve.
We walked a little bit in the market. The decorations are so pretty!
We stopped for lunch at the Noisy Oyster. Lon thinks that is a fun place. He likes the food there. This time, they did have the 5 layer chocolate cake. It was good, but the best dessert was the carmel cheesecake! Oh! that was good!
We stopped by the Savannah Candy Kitchen. Grammalyn got some candy to bring back
It was getting almost time to go. We saw that the Powder Magazine was right next to where we parked.  We went to go see what it was like. This year was the 300th anniversary of it's existence!
It no longer contains larger stores of gun powder.
Lon is looking at dioramas!
Mark was having fun too
Daddy and Lon played several rounds of Sink the Pirate Ship! They were having a good time!
Out side they had a pillory. Lon was able to wiggle his hands out of it!
Mark played it up well! Someone was walking by, they took Mark's picture too. The guy told him, I have no idea who you are but you are forever in one of my pictures!
Back to the parking lot and away we go!
We did not go straight home! Grammalyn wanted to go over the Ravenel Bridge, so we did. We went over to Isle of Palms.
We saw a female cardinal in the bushes along the boardwalk.
Lon was looking for shells. We found some! We are going to try to make shell angels out of them
We did go home for a little bit, then out to Ye Olde Fashioned for an ice cream snack after dinner!
On our way home from the ice cream place, we looked at some lights! This Yoda was a favorite!
We had a good day!
