Charleston, day 2 | South Carolina

We started the day with a visit to the farmer’s market. I have to say, I was truly impressed. The amount of produce available in the middle of winter is staggering! I guess it doesn’t hurt that the weather is not winter-like, but still!

so many greens!

We walked around some more and we ended up by the waterfront. There, we saw pelicans and daulphins! I was in heaven.

Lunch brought us to Fleet Landing Restaurant, where I had my first hushpuppies and discovered the amazing-ness that is Firefly (sweet tea vodka) with lemonade. The view wasn’t bad either!

After lunch the weather turned to cloudy and after a bit more of exploring the area, it threatened to rain.

To take shelter, we decided to tour the Heyward-Washington House, one of the many restored and preserved houses around open to the public. Built in 1772, the house had great furniture on display. Personally, I enjoyed the garden more! Funilly enough, it didn’t start raining until the tour ended in the garden.

For dinner we ate at Husk, a restaurant that specializes in Southern cuisine. The highlight of the meal for us was their “Charleston Light Dragoon’s Punch”, which Travis tried early in the meal. It was so good, we ordered it again as our desert!

oysters!
