Music and libations

Only a short stop in Williamsburg and then a few hour flight south to Charleston SC for some music, food and libations.

Easy travel from our hotel that was nice even though it was sans hot water because of some trouble affecting the whole block. But the water was still maybe warmer than it was outside – or was it?

More importantly Jim looked up the recommendation for getting to LaGuardia – the two hours before your flight is no joke. Most of that two hours was spent getting through security. Lucky for us we were not too bad, by the time we reached the front the end of the queue was almost outside in the rain.

Pleasant flight out with Delta watching a poor 5 year old who only spoke Spanish and was on the flight by himself going home to mum. Wonder the story – poor boy but he was kept amused. He had a play on my iPad and watched some movies on someone else’s.

Into Charleston, lovely weather – 27, compared to the 6 we’d just left behind. Great hotel – Hilton Suites – in a good location, and an easy walk to Leon’s poultry and fish where we had some great oysters, soft shell crab, shrimp (aka prawns), grilled radicchio and cocktails.

Next day was a walk around. We’ve been here before so knew where we were going. Nice city with a lot of tourists but good shopping and eateries. And to finish the day, low country boil, oysters, beers and music at a night before the music festival we travelled over for. And I write this filling in time for day one of the High Water festival.
