On Tuesday afternoon, Hubby and I decided to go see the Morris Island Lighthouse. The lighthouse is located to the east of Folly Beach. It is dangerous to actually go on the island where the lighthouse is located. However you can get a great view of the lighthouse from the beach on the far east side of Folly Beach.
Today’s the last post about Monday of our trip. After dinner on that Monday evening, we went back to the same place we saw the sunset on Sunday.
It was another gorgeous sunset. Afterwards, we headed back down to downtown Folly for some shaved ice. Yummy!
While we were in downtown Folly, I checked my Facebook. I found out one of my students from my first few years of teaching was going to be a father. What a memory from our trip.
Once again, I’m going to share it via a slideshow.
Join me next week for the Tuesday of our trip. It was a beach day for us. However, I walked down the beach early in the morning, met up with Hubby for an early breakfast date, and visited the Morris Island Lighthouse. We also went back to see the sunset which was once again gorgeous. So there will be several blog posts highlighting our beach day.
After we were finished with the Aquarium, we decided to visit downtown Charleston. We found out that in certain areas you can park for free. Okay, you have only an hour to be parked there. But not paying anything to park is great.
I woke up early on Monday morning so I decided to walk on the beach. The problem is I was still wearing my pj’s. Not many people are up at that time so it really did not matter what I was wearing as long as I was decent.
There is not much to say about these photos because they will speak for themselves. The sunrise was gorgeous.
When I got back up to the house, my family was beginning to get up for the day. Hubby and my niece were outside. In fact, Hubby decided to take a dip in the ocean before breakfast.
My niece took photos of me in my pj’s with Hubby in the background.
When I got back to the house, the sun was completely up and was absolutely beautiful.
Join next Saturday for photos of the South Carolina Aquarium.
Join me on Saturdays for posts about our South Carolina trip.
I mentioned the Hunley when I did the book review for The Girl on Legare Street written by Karen White. I shared a few of these photo collages in that post.
You can only visit the museum where they are restoring the Hunley on the weekends. So that’s where we went on Sunday afternoon.
Have you heard about the Hunley? It was a Confederate submarine that sunk an Union ship during the Civil War. After it sunk the Union ship, it disappeared.
No one knows what caused the Hunley to sink and disappear.
In 1995, it was finally found.
The Hunley was not brought to the surface until August 2000. All of the men were found perfectly preserved.
In 2004, they buried the men in Magnolia Cemetery. (Sidenote: My mother-in-law’s grandparents are buried in the same cemetery.)
They are currently trying to remove all of build up on the Hunley.
And they still don’t know what caused the submarine to sink. Here is a link to the possible theories.
I got to visit the Hunley in December 2000 when I went with my in-laws to Charleston. You could not actually see the Hunley just a model of the submarine.
I would highly suggest going to see the Hunley if you are in Charleston. It does cost money to go into the museum. Just be aware of that.
I’m going to be taking a break on this blog series until the first Saturday in November. In October, I’m going to be sharing 31 days of gluten free foods so the entire month will be dedicated to just recipes.
When I return in November, I’ll be sharing photos from Sunday evening.
