For his birthday, Andy decided that he wanted to take Friday off and go on a random road trip over the long weekend. So we packed up the car and started heading south Friday morning. We decided to head down to Charleston, since neither of us had ever been there. We drove off the interstate and stayed closer to the coast since Andy likes to drive the back routes and we weren't in any hurry to get anywhere. I was happy to ride and read a good book.
We made it to Charleston and stayed at La Quinta Riverside since it got good ratings and was dog-friendly. It was nice - not right downtown, but only a few minutes away. Charleston is a neat city - we ended up taking a carriage tour on Saturday to see some of the sights.
We wandered around, did a little shopping, and ate some really good food. We ate shrimp at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. which was a fun place. And Andy got a T-shirt. We had lunch at a great pub called Tommy Condron's. And Andy had one of the best meals ever at Southend Brewery & Smokehouse - pork chops and grits. I don't even like grits, but theirs were amazing.
We walked around the Charleston harbor and saw the cruise ships.
