We drove down to historic Charleston and began a walking tour. We visited the historic market area, viewed Rainbow Row and the Batteries that fired on Fort Sumter. Cannon and I had visited Fort Sumter last year with the Webelos so we didn't go out there. We arrived back at the car around 2PM and started driving to Savannah. didn't take us long to decide the 8 hour drive home sounded really nice. We hit the house at 10.30PM... read more

We had planned to go to the Outer Banks and camp on the beach for two days, but after 4 weeks of beautiful weather we hit our first rain and the forcast continued for several days. We changed our plan and drove into North Carolina .... Hit the Vistor Center and didn't find anything very exciting on our drive path so continued to South Carolina and decided to visit Charleston. In fact we drove within an hour of my birthplace (Hartsville SC) and I feel guilty of not stopping and seeing my uncle but I didn't want to impose without warning. We hit Charleston at 9PM and decided on a hotel instead of camping in the rain.... read more

Day 30. We left Williamsburg in the morning and headed to BWI to pick up Mary. She arrived at 11.30 and we headed to the Marriott. Unloaded and jumped onto the Metro to head to the Mall. As we exited the Metro it was raining and we headed for the first Smithsonian building -- Natural History. 2 hours and we were off to see the Monuments -- Lincoln, Vietnam, and WW2. We were starving so we left the mall looking for a place to eat. Amazing how hard this is --- after lots of walking we found a thai place. ... read more

Day 29. We went to the Busch Garden Water Park. No photos as the camera battery finally died. I can't find the charger in the car but Mary will be with us on the 30th with her nice camera so we will continue to have updates and photos while we visit Washington DC. But do check the video attached. The campgrounds we are at in Williamsburg is an RV park and located between a highway and ACTIVE train track. We have coal trains going by our tent (within 20 feet) 3 times a night. Makes for interesting stay.... read more
