Posts Tagged ‘charleston’

for memorial day weekend, husby and took a trip down to the lowcountry to explor charleston, sc and savannah, ga. i haven’t been to charleston since i was about 15 and i’ve only driven through savannah. husby had never been to either so i figured it was a good first road trip since moving back south 🙂

i took ALOT of pictures (imagine that!) so im going to break it up into a few different posts.

first up…charleston!

we drove to charleston on thursday night, and friday matt had to finish up some work so i explored king street on my own that morning…ie took lots of pictures of buildings!

…which is my new favorite southern restaurant! this place was AWESOME! all the ingredients in the kitchen come from below the mason-dixon line. if its not from the south, it doesnt come through the door! they have a big chalkboard sign when you come in the door and it says where each ingredient has come from, for example: grits….such and such farm in NC. so cool!

the restaurant was in a renovated historic home with a big front porch, which is where our table was…
