One of My Favorite Cities on the Eastern Coast

If you have never visited this southern coastal city, you should. Here are a couple of street scenes. Can you guess where it is?

It is one of the most beautiful cities during every season of the year.

Have you guessed yet? It is Charleston, SC.

This past week, I attended a conference on Blue Ribbon schools. When my principal asked me to attend, I jumped at the opportunity. The conference was in Charleston, but I stayed on the Isle of Palms.

This quaint little island is wonderful in the late fall. I think my husband and I were among about ten people staying at the hotel. This was the beach view from our room.

And this is what my husband did while I attended the conference.

At night, this is what we did together.
Yep, we ate the most wonderful food. This is flounder fron Hyman's in Charleston. Normally, you have to wait in a long line to eat here in the evenings. It was the middle of the week when we ate here, so our wait time was about 5 minutes. I am ashamed to say I ate the WHOLE plate of flounder. Yes, I was about to popped, but the streets of Charleston are a great way to walk off a meal such as this.
Now I am home, back at school and counting down the days until we are out for Christmas break. Oh, yeah... I am still in the knitting groove. Later I'll post some pictures of some baby gifts I have knitted for a dear friend who is waiting on a phone call any day. They are adopting a little one. The birth mother is due in about a week.

I haven't made it to Charleston yet and I really want to go. I've never been to Savannah, either. One of these days...

I'm glad you had such a nice trip!
