|This is iconic, isn't it?|

I have tons more pictures that I'd like to show you, but that's all I have time for right now. To summarize, Miss Chef had a conference to attend here, and I went along for the ride. She was in sessions most of Friday and Saturday, so I spent a lot of time walking around on my own. I also did a pirate tour (thus Cap'n Bob and friend in my previous post), a carriage tour and a tour of Fort Sumter where the Civil War began.
Our timing was wonderful. This month marks the sesquicentennial of the start of the Civil War, so there were extra events and exhibits. The farmers' market started this past Saturday. The famous shopping area of King Street was closed to cars for Second Sunday, so we were able to spend some time strolling along. And Sunday was also the twice-a-year French service at the Huguenot Church--which we missed, because we forgot to calculate in time for packing up and checking out.
Most of all, though, the weather was fabulous.
And yes, we ate a lot of fabulous food. But more on that later. For now, I'll just say Charleston has won me over completely.
