There is still so much to tell you yet about our wonderful trip to Charleston. Last post we left off on Tuesday, 4/6. Unfortunately we had to check out of our gorgeous hotel in the historic district and we went on to our next hotel in North Charleston. We all agreed we would have loved to stay in the historic district longer, but unfortunately our reservation there was only for 2 nights, and the hotel was booked for any additional nights. But we weren't too disappointed though when we got to our hotel in North Charleston, which was a nice one bedroom suite. Even though we were having a great time, I think we were all happy to have the extra room to spread out.
So we got up on Wednesday morning and after a great breakfast in the hotel, we went back to the room for a bit to relax , after which we headed to Sullivan's Island to visit Fort Moultrie.

Behind the Fort is a nice beach area, which the girls really enjoyed
After our time at the beach we headed back to the hotel, but stopped in Mount Pleasant for a bit where we went to a flea market/antique auction house, a book store and had a great steak dinner. It was a full day and we were all pretty tired, but I was still able to make my card before crashing for the night
Thursday, 4/8 was our last full day in Charleston, so we decided to spend it downtown, walking around the historic district.
I loved these pretty flower boxes.
St. Phillips Graveyard is just as creepy in the daytime as it is at night
The newly rennovated Dock Street Theater, said to be haunted
The famous pineapple fountain in Waterfront Park

We did a lot of walking but we were glad we got to visit downtown one more time. Back at the hotel that night I made my card for the day called "Blue", which feature materials I picked up at the Dock Street Theater.
Well that's all I have for today. As always your comments are welcomed so feel free to drop me a line. Thanks for stopping by and come back soon.
