Our stops in both Charleston, SC and Savannah, GA turned out to be busts – the weather (rain in Charleston and freezing cold in Savannah) kept B&B “house” bound.
Other than a walk in the rain around Fort Moultrie on Sullivan’s Island outside of Charleston, the only places visited were restaurants; the Fuel Cantina in downtown Charleston (reviewed by Guy Fieri of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives – Dive being the operative descriptor in this case) and The Cotton Exchange on River Street in Savannah, where the food was (reportedly) most delicious.
Both the Oak Plantation Campground and the Red Gate Campground were big and roomy, and the Red Gate had chickens, roosters, rabbits, horses, and a donkey (which was just a little bigger than I) – there were also alligators in the neighboring lakes and poisonous snakes and ugly insects in the ditches along the drives, so I had to be careful where I walked and stuck my nose!
I’m looking forward to our two-week trek around sunny Florida; first stop, St. Augustine.
Look for a full report in the weeks to come and enjoy this nice, cold weather while you can!
Your Friend, Buster.
