The first leg of our trip was to Charleston, SC, a beautiful and charming city in every way.
We took a delightful Carriage ride during which the driver gave us the lowdown on the care of the horses. They are logged in and out for every trip, regulated as to how many days and hours they can work, get shipped off for two week vacations out to pasture and are very well cared for. The weather was a balmy 75 degrees with no humidity!
We spent some time checking out Charleston's rich selection of art galleries and had a lovely dinner at the Francis Marion Hotel.
My hubby was a Navy man stationed in Charleston, but there is no trace left of the Navy Base as he knew it.
The Carriage Horses make Charleston
The day out on Chincoteague was spectacularly beautiful and the only horses we saw were spotted from the top of the lighthouse.
Huffing and puffing ;)
