LAUNCH DAY 25: SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY TOUR CHARLESTON EDITION

Day 25: in the launch lane: Charleston


Sweet tea flows like water which is
 a good thing because Charleston 

water taste like swamp-juice...
Charleston was the first stop on the Southern Hospitality Tour and it did not disappoint.  The only bad thing about Charleston is the water.


In a word...it's NASTY.  The charm of the people of this coastal city make up for it ten times over!  


We didn't have any change for the meter and some woman offered up her change.  We tried to give her the cash equivalent and she refused warmly and said, "Welcome to Charleston!"


Complimentary fresh waffles every morning
at our hotel...
I was a bridesmaids in a wedding for one of my favorite Southern Belles.  She is actually from Washington but the Southern Hospitality poured forth from her as well.  I was beginning to think if I stayed any longer I too would have an accent, call people honey and demonstrate my own brand Southern Hospitality.  



This is actually one meal for one person:
chicken fried chicken, mac n cheese,
dirty rice, and grits.

Crabcakes, squash casserole and mac n cheese from the wedding rehearsal dinner.
 There was a long corridor style market with vendors carrying unique Charleston items from spices, cookbooks, palmettos, art, trinkets, keepsakes to shea butter and organic black soap. 
Free samples of this dried okra were
offered but I didn't try any unfortunately.
Charleston is hella classy!
Your red cup comes with a crystal  handle!

After engaging in some awkwardly friendly
 bathroom stall conversation (which is apparently
really common), enjoy a complimentary hand scrub that leaves your skin feeling baby soft! 

Hookah bar inside of a cafe/bakery....
ummmmm?????  Happy 4/20 I suppose....

Me along with my tour mates!  We had a
blast in Charleston!  This pic was taken
on our last day together in Charleston.
Next stop: Columbia and Greenville before heading to Atlanta...
