We visited Charleston, SC last week for some post-deployment quality time in one of the oldest and most beautiful cities in the nation. The hotel kindly upgraded us to a luxurious suite for free. We walked, took a boat out on the harbor, watched movies on the laptop, enjoyed good southern food, and had a generally lovely weekend. Lovely, that is, until Carl developed a horrific case of food poisoning on the third day and landed in the Emergency Room in the wee hours. He’s recovered now, and the pictures prove we still managed to enjoy ourselves.
