No Recession in Charleston SC


We went to Hyman's Seafood Restaurant in Charleston. This dish of Shrimp Scampi is already short about eight shrimp I ate before I regained my senses enough to take a picture. There was a 45 minute wait to get into the seafood restaurant--voted the best nine years in a row by Southern Living magazine. I made sure not to have any Maine Lobster, although I was wearing an L.L. Bean shirt, sport coat and shoes.

We stayed at the the luxurious Planters Inn. It is one of Charleston's most historic and tallest buildings. Of course they put us on the top floor, which was a mistake. At least when they moved us this time, it wasn't into a room looking out over the air conditioning unit.

CP went shopping for that elusive Mother of the Bride Dress while I went to my meeting. After five hours of driving 70 mph and being passed by 4,675 cars and trucks going 85 mph we are back home in time to hear Blue Grass Music at the Feed & Seed.

Are you sure, Babba-Gi, that the shrimp wasn't imported from Maine by hard working ultra-conservatives? That dinner looks great!

This was business, if it wasn't we would have stayed at Hampton Inn and ate at Red Lobster.

Hampton Inn and Red Lobster. This is something you can't miss. Charleston wv vacations is one the best places for food and enjoyment.
