The tour guide took us on a gingerly and leisurely pace but the heat was too much, my traveller partners were pooping out. We did make it to Charleston's Market aka - tourist row to buy typical tourist stuff but to also checkout out the sweet basket weavers.
Tomorrow we head back, 7 hours plus of driving, to Alabama, if we wake up on time we're going to the Middleton Plantation.
We'll see how it works out, South Carolina has been a different experience than the other States we have visited. I was really struck with the citizens of Savannah, the folks who lived in the historical district were so helpful and proud. They seemed charmed by their our community. I haven't felt that in Charleston, the city feels tougher and the citizens while polite are not warm. Even the soul folks feel a little cold to me - unlike most places in the South we're friendliness is the norm.
