Day 105 - SDA Church & Rest (Photo's Added)

I took Mom to church in McClellanville while I worked on the blog. We finished the short drive to Charleston and stopped early to take some time off.

storm 55 °F

Logistics:

Miles Driven - 44
Weather - Overcast (wind & rain at night)
Camped at Mt. Pleasant KOA (11 miles from Charleston)

Musings:

There won't be much to write or post for today, we're sort of taking the day off.

Narrative:

Mom attended church in McCellanville, a small fishing village a few miles north of Charleston. I looked it up on the internet last night, but the map wasn't quite right, so after wandering around on the wrong side of the highway for a few minutes, I stopped and asked a local man if there was a SDA church nearby. He'd never heard of one, but did recognize the street name and was very helpful getting us back on track.

The church was quite small, Mom said there were only about 20 people there. They were quite friendly however and even suggested we might like to live there and join their church! Mom doesn't seem to have any trouble making friends wherever she travels. After the service, I met her outside and the Minister, Paster James Simmons insisted I be in the picture with him (it's so hard saying 'no' to people who are being so friendly)

While in the parking lot, we also saw a different kind of vulture - a black vulture. Didn't recognize it until I could cross check it later in the Charleston Museum.

(Alright, give me a break. This is a different kind of vulture.)

Anyway, we did continue on to Charleston. Along the side of the highway are many Sweetgrass vendor booths. Some are empty this time of year, but we also saw quite a few vendors out with their products. We stopped at one, then realized that between us we didn't have very much cash (just let our supply of trade goods run a little low I'm afraid). We picked out a small basket that we could both afford. The lady was so nice that when Mom told her about our trip - she insisted on giving Mom another small basket also! Unfortunately I forgot to ask her name, but she did pose for a picture - so if you recognize her, be sure and offer her your business next time you're in the Charleston area...

The weather was turning sour and I was generally of a mind to take it a bit easy today anyway, so we pulled off at a really nice looking KOA for the night. It may not look like it, but I spent quite a bit of time on the blog today as well as did some organizing in the RV (you'd be surprised how difficult it is to stay organized with two people sharing such a small space). We have fliers, maps and all sorts of stuff - Charleston in the Morning!

The big storm was forecasted to hit the NE today, lots of snow & ice up north. SC will get the southern edge, rain & wind, temperatures dropping, but not below freezing.

Tis true, very windy & heavy rain at times all night.
