Even though it’s supposed to rain all weekend, my love for this town isn’t shaken. Knowing that the forecast calls for steady rain today and tomorrow, we decided to soak up as much of the city as possible yesterday.
We arrived around 1:30pm and went straight to lunch.
We went to 82 Queen in downtown Charleston. It was my first time there, and I loved that it had all the charm of Charleston. We decided to eat in the courtyard to take full advantage of the sunshine.
Biscuits, she crab soup and a bloody mary to start.
The biscuit and soup that I shared with mom were phenomenal. Bring a self-proclaimed bloody mary expert, it was just OK.
I ordered the crab cake, which was delicious and true to it’s 90% crab label, grilled chicken, fried green tomato and cheddar grits. I split with mom, who ordered the jambalaya.
The dry jambalaya was my favorite- perfect amount of spice!
From there we went exploring through the market.
And wondered the streets.
Through the old graveyards,
and down to the water.
It is so beautiful here.
We are actually staying at Isle of Palms, so we finally headed to our rental around 5:45, just in time to enjoy a short, cool walk on the beach.
We are up and moving this morning, hoping to make it to a ghost tour. I’m not sure how long Hailey will last, but luckily I’ll have many wonderful helping hands!
Cara (my sis in law with my new niece in her belly), me, my Aunt Lynn, my aunt Cynde, my cousin Mya (with a little one in her belly, too!), my momma and of course, sweet Hailey.
Have a wonderful weekend! And if you have any Charleston suggestions for rainy days, please feel free to share
