Charleston has this great slogan - "Be a tourist in your own city". When you live in a place like Charleston where there is so much history and so many things to do, you absolutely should go do some silly touristy things. The problem is that you get wrapped up in your life and work and all of the errands you need to run on the weekend that you never actually make time to see these things. That's why visiting family is great. You're forced to go be a tourist. And it's fun! And I loved it! Scott's parents finally came to visit last week (this should make you feel some guilt, Mom of mine). We went on a carriage tour -
(love the way that lady is waving at us), went to the aquarium, toured the Nathan Russell house,
ate WAY too much fried seafood and visited just a couple of antique stores. Dad ran the Cooper River Bridge from Mt Pleasant to Charleston and back. The weekend was jam packed. I was sad to see them go.
