I finally took a vacation--at least a few days this past week, and went to Charleston. I didn't feel much like getting on an airplane- I spend enough time on those for work. This was only a three hour drive. Plus, I love Charleston, and I had hotel points to cover my stay at my favorite hotel there, The Mills House. Everything is within walking distance from that hotel.
The weather was perfect, sunny and warm (well hot) during the day, and then a thunderstorm and pouring rain almost every evening to cool things off for a nice evening stroll. Just perfect. I enjoyed some great rest, got a tan, did some writing, reading, and ate some incredible food. Such a nice mini-break. Now, back to reality on Monday.
