I got early on Tuesday and took a walk. The sunrise was absolutely gorgeous! So totally worth getting up early to see it.
We had decided to go as a family to see the Battery and take our traditional pictures on the cannon. I almost missed it though all because of having to go to the bathroom. I knew I shouldn’t have drunk the second cup of coffee but it was so good, There is no where on the Battery to go to the bathroom. Let me repeat there is no public restrooms. Argh! A lady and her husband heard my plight and decided help me find a bathroom. She and I walked over to an inn and she asked them for some southern hospitality. Fortunately the lady did allow me to use their bathroom.
I missed all the kids by themselves on the cannon but got pictures of all 4 grandkids with the grandparents. (Out of respect to my sister and brother-in-law I’m not going to post those pics.) I also used my tripod to get pictures of the whole family and I. The problem I had was I couldn’t get onto the cannon without crawling onto it. (I was wearing a dress.) After picture taking was done, everyone went their separate ways. We walked a little down Rainbow Row and then ended up in the Edmonston-Alston house. Hubby and I enjoyed that. The Wee One did not enjoy it as much.
We then went to my favorite restaurant in Charleston – Hominy Grill. The boys were not so thrilled with the food. I’ll take that back, they liked the French fries but not the mac and cheese because it had pepper on it and the applesauce because it was lumpy. Hubby and I ate until we were stuffed. I had a Dirty Biscuit which was a southern style biscuit, a fried chicken breast, and sausage gravy. I had it with okra and tomatoes and marinated cucumbers and onions. For dessert, I had a slice of peach upside down cake.
After we got back to the condo, we laid down for a while and took a satisfied belly nap. Everyone else in the house was gone so it was quiet.
After everyone came back, it was back to the beach for the children. They had fun jumping around in the waves.
Hubby, my father-in-law, my niece and nephew, and the boys went to a minor league baseball game – Riverdogs – that evening and my sister and brother-in-law went out. So it was only my mother-in-law and I went to Cory’s Grilled Cheese for dinner. I had a Cory’s Famous which was cinnamon raisin bread, provolone cheese, bacon, and honey mustard. So delicious! I also had their summer slaw which was an Asian slaw with ramen noodles.
After we got back to the condo, my mother-in-law and I went for a walk along the beach. It was nice to talk with her. She is such a giving person. Soon after we got back to the condo, the kids, Hubby, and my father-in-law came back from the game. Some how the Imaginative One got a foul ball and then gave it to the Wee One. Hubby is still unsure how it totally happened because all the Imaginative One was suppose to do was get some water.
Then it was off to bed. More adventures later.
