As I sit and write this post, I’m sad about the thought of leaving an absolutely beautiful city (that I unfortunately did NOT get to tour too much of), but am so excited to be returning home to JP and the hounds…beyond belief excited! I miss my family so much!
If you haven’t been reading much of my blog lately (it’s OK, I haven’t had much of a chance to post), I’ve been in Charleston, SC, for a conference since Thursday. A lot of people think that when I attend a conference (or travel anywhere for work, for that matter), that I get to spend a lot of time exploring the area I’m in, and that’s not the case. Most of the time, the conference I’ve attended started at 8 a.m. (and 7 a.m. on Saturday!), and ended between 7 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. (again with the exception of Sunday, which ended around 10:30 at night).
This morning, however, I was able to get a chance to tour part of the city with local girl, Abby at Back at Square Zero.
She took me down King Street, where my hotel was located, out to a really cool man-made pond (of course I can’t remember the name of it!) set in the middle of the city, and down near the ocean and Battery Park. A few pics from our run:
Speaking of places to eat…although I didn’t get to go out too much, my co-workers and I grabbed a bite of local cuisine at a couple of fabulous restaurants. On Thursday evening, we went to High Cotton, where I tried the low-country boil, which was absolutely AMAZING! And then on Friday evening, we went to the Peninsula Grille, where I had this:
I didn’t do any shopping, but did take a few photos of some drool-worthy items from Tommy Bahama and Louis Vuitton. It was hard enough packing my suitcase after getting a bunch of swag from the conference!
