You are so right..it is a beautiful city. I havent seen any part of the Carolina's that isn't..
Could that have been Catfish or Flounder you ate?? I love Flounder and the best I have ever eaten is at the Harbour House in Hickory N.C. (right Elf!) and I HATE fish...go figgure..

May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.

Yep, that's about it Maidrite. There are 2 homestyle restaurants right next to each other that are owned by the same family. I've never been to either one of them, they just don't look all that appetizing from the outside. Sounds like you live in a town about the size of the one we moved from. It is a small mill town but they have several businesses & restaurants.

Dove I don't like fish either and was really surprised at how good it was. Just asked Dh and he said it might have been flounder. The park we camped at was a state park. It was about 6 years ago and my memory is fuzzy. (At my age everything is fuzzy)

Charleston is very beautiful. My dh and I spent some time there last year and I want to go back someday. My daughter and her family vacation at Sullivan's Island every summer with another couple and their children. They love the area.

What beautiful pictures! I have been to Fort Sumter, the Slave Market, Rainbow Row, and around the downtown area. I can't wait to go back again so my husband can see it.

Crewsk, our town (Pageland) has about 3,000 people. We are on the highway leading from Charlotte to Myrtle Beach, so there are quite a few places to eat, gas stations, etc.

Spring is my favorite time here - the flowers just knock you out they're so gorgeous!

And now we're in the beginning of the Spoleto Festival, so have to watch out for all the tourists who don't know which way they're going, lol!

We actually live in Mt Pleasant, right across the Cooper River from Charleston; it's where Isle of Palms and Sullivan's Island are, both resort as well as residential areas; folks who golf say the best golfing in the US is here.

And if you're a CIvil War buff, well - there's noplace else to go but Charleston! Some of the houses downtown still have cannon balls in the walls!
