As many of you know my hubby was laid off a few weeks ago. The good news is he quickly found a new job, but still had a few weeks of downtime before he started back to work. So we have been having a staycation right here in Charleston. We have been trying to do all local things that we never seem to have the time to do!
First on our list was a visit to Charlestown Landing. The oldest spot in town where the first low country settlers landed in 1670. It was neat, they had a zoo filled with bison, bears, deer, bobcats, and turkeys. Sterling was very intrigued by all the animals. They also had a re-creation of the original settlement and a trading vessel from the era. It was fun minus the swarms of mosquitoes and 105 heat index. I stupidly tried to dress cute in my Rebecca Taylor blouse that was later covered in bug spray and sweat.
Next we went to a local Mexican restaurant, La Carreta, to celebrate a friend getting into nursing school. On Friday nights they do free tequila shots, so we all had a very good time!
Sterling loved the mariachi band!
