Staying in Charleston for Easter

We spent the day yesterday in Charleston again. We took a tour of the town with a guide that could tell us all about the history and the beautiful old buildings. This is such a unique and beautiful place. The historical buildings date from 1712 thru the 1850 antebellum homes. The town has a lot of restrictions on how the buildings can be used and the exterior of the buildings have to stay as close as possible to original. Most of the town is beautifully restored with huge old trees and beautiful flowers. The Hampton Inn and some other hotels are in old buildings like a renovated old cotton warehouse and the Citadel (military college). I've never seen anything quite like that before.

We've moved to a KOA outside of Charleston for the Easter weekend. It was impossible to get reservations in any South Carolina State Parks and we didn't want to move further north for a bit to let it warm up. We will leave here on Monday 4/13 and go to Great Smoky Mountain National Park for 4 days. We will then go into Nashville, Tennessee. I got tickets to go to the Grand Ole Opry while we are there. Our 40th wedding anniversary is coming up on 4/19 and I could get tickets for 4/18 to the Opre. I can hear many of you rolling your eyes....but we really like country music. Right now, Rascal Flats are schedule to perform that night so I'm excited. The KOA in Nashville is very close to the Opre and they have a shuttle over there so that will be nice.

We did laundry and barbequed hamburgers for dinner tonight and just had a quiet day. The KOA is only about 25 miles from the other campground so it was a quick move. We are going to try to go over to the beach tomorrow
