Sunday- woke up and had planned to do Folly Beach. The weather was not planning for that. We headed toward Sullivan's Island and had breakfast at the Old Post House in the Village. We got seated right away in the Tavern side. My husband ordered the shrimp and grits and they were by far the best shrimp and grits we had on the trip. I had the Post House omelette that was also excellent and a peach bellini. After that we headed towards Fort Moultrie. We watched the video but did not tour the actual fort. We went over to the Water's edge and split the pesto grouper and mashed potatoes. Great view of the Shem Creek. Saw a dolphin. Had a great server, Jodie. Another great quote heard from another table, "I love seafood, I just don't like fish." We then went to the Yorktown etc. Got in the submarine. Not for anyone that is claustrophobic. Yorktown was okay but the tours are not as interesting as previous ones we had done. We then went back to the hotel and got ready to go on the dinner cruise.It is not something I would recommend unless you want to cruise and not see the sights on the water. During the cruise as they talk you past Charleston's waterfront the food is being served and you have to continue to run up and down the stairs to eat and see the sights. I would recommend the regular harbor cruise instead.
Monday- Breakfast at Gaulart and Maliclet. Only people there. It was good. I went on to Folly Beach and my husband took a gray line tour. I really liked getting to the beach and relaxing for a bit. I was a wee bit toured out. After we reconnected at the hotel,we went into town, walked about the art show for Spoleto, had an iced coffee at city lights. then dinner at Virginia's on King. Very good she-crab soup. Fried chicken was overfried. After dinner went to the rooftop bar had my last sweet tea martini as we watched the sunset. Thank you so much Charleston we loved the architecture, the people, the food, and energy. You have a lovely city and we thank you very much for letting us visit.
