Rain and More Rain

Today we woke up to rain with the promise of more rain all day with rain all night and into tomorrow. Something like 3" or so before it is over with. Therefore, there will be no site seeing plans for today. I did get out to get my hair cut and Ellie went to the store. Other than that, we have been here at the RV park all day trying to stay dry.

Since we are home bound, I thought I would try the wifi again just to see if it would let me post a few pictures from the last couple of days.

After lunch it was time for us to walk a few blocks to where we would be boarding the local carriage for our afternoon tour of homes.

What a way to see Charleston! Enjoy the tour...

The carriage ride and seeing these beautiful old homes made for a delightful afternoon.

Posting these pictures today turned out to be a great rainy day activity. The 3" of predicted rain has turned out to be about 6 or 7" as of 10 o'clock tonight and it isn't over with yet. Hope we are floating in the morning when we wake up. See you tomorrow.


  1. Great pictures! I love the buildings! That's a must see in that area. Thanks for taking us with you.

  2. Aren't those home beautiful! Can you imagine living there - the upkeep must be tremendous! Glad you enjoyed your visit.

  3. Oh Dortha, we just love Charleston! The photos are wonderful...wish we were there too! Eat at Shem Creek if you get the chance, and also Hyman's in town, for wonderful seafood!
    Have fun and hugs!
