After spending yesterday at home, we decided to go back into the Revolutionary city today to check out some of the things we missed on our first visit Saturday.
Here are some last impressions....
|British Coat of Arms on the Governor's Palace|
|Dave took this and wanted me to post it|
He entitles it "Camp Director consulting her maps"
|brick kiln. |
The bricks made here are used to do all the repair work in the restored city
|Dave listens with interest in the Cabinetmaker's shop|
|this beautiful cobblestone lined stream flows beneath the Cabinetmaker's shop|
|squirrel patrol is much the same today as it was in the 18th century...|
|Fall is just beginning to touch the trees here|
We had another really interesting day. We visited the Governor's Palace and Gardens, the Riflesmith's,
the Cooper Shop, the Cabinetmaker's Shop and the Brickmaker's compound.and of course, the Bakery (Dave whines if he doesn't have a little something to eat with his second cup).
We're all historyed out, we're on history overload, if you know what I mean. (Sorry John). Its been really fun and we're so glad we took this route, but our brains are frazzled with dates and names and battles and
what we need now is a beach fix. So, tomorrow we leave this fine campground and head to Myrtle Beach. We've never been there before, we don't know what to expect but we're up for some mindless beach walking.
