Balmoral to America's Deep south

Postby hazel20 » 30 Sep 2015 16:24

Day 2 in Charleston. It's hot, but not quite so humid yet although maybe it builds up over the day.
Loving Charleston - lovely buildings and churches. Great shops - many expensive design names like Gucci so clearly an affulent place.

Mum gone to the aquarium. I have done the Confederacy Museum, Old Slave Market Museum.

I ain't rushin....

Not really a Country and Western fan, but I did enjoy them. There were 4 in the band. Two men playing banjoes and two ladies on guitar. The music was lively and the singing was good.

They did a variety of songs - Many of which I didn't know but I knew Jolene and Ring of Fire.

And at least they did not sing songs in which the wife had left and the dog had died....!!

Just arriving in Savannah. Looking a bit overcast but it is still very humid. Should berth about 11. We are a little behind schedule because of fog in the river

When it was time to disembark in Savannah, the rain was torrential. Mum took one look and turned back. I went ahead. Walked through flood water ankle deep to get to the shuttle bus. Absolutely soaked to the skin in 30 seconds.

Once in the centre I did the circular local shuttle but we were all so wet that the bus steamed up and so we didn't see much.

My trousers are now dry but my underwear is still wet (sorry!!). My feet are squelching so I'm going back to get dry.

It is warm rain!!

Went into a small bakery to get a hot drink. The lady running it was from Staffordshire! I ordered a red wine and she told me it was happy hour and gave me a tumbler full......rain, what rain, hic

I certainly am, Angela!

Tomorrow Jacksonville, then Port Canaveral.

Two days in Miami and my friend Marlene is flying down from Missouri to see us there - Mum's birthday too so a wonderful weekend in store.
