Here's the pictures!

These pictures go with the post below. Megan - I hope they don't make you too homesick!This is a view of the new Arthur Ravenal Bridge, from Patriots Point.
This is the Yorktown. You can't believe how big it was. It held 3,000 sailors along with 390 officers.

Here is Bob in a Grummond Cougar. This plane was inside the ship, and was only one of many.

This is the view from the top of Fort Sumter.

Laura and Aaron


A row of cannons along the edge of the Fort.

A view of the Fort as we approached from the ocean.

Do you see that black thing in the water? It's a dolphin - you'll just have to trust me on this!

A bird we saw along the water edge - maybe Dena or Megan can identify it?

The sidewalk along Battery Park. There are Palmetto trees everywhere here and they are really beautiful.

Look at these beautiful houses. It's fun to just walk down the street.
That's it for now - more pictures tomorrow. I hope you don't get sick of looking at them!

That there would be your garden variety egret. Although how anything that beautiful could be called garden variety is beyond me. Gorgeous pictures. I hope you had some good seafood tonight, people. An' some sweet-tea.

I love the picture of the trees- very cool- It looks kind of like beverly hills!

Terri said...

Keep the pictures coming. We love them. It's still hot here today. We set record temps yesterday. It was already 76 at 6:30 this morning. It should cool down tomorrow. I'll be thinking of you in the heat. You'll have to just endure it so that we get to see more!

I am doing a lot better - thanks so much for asking. It is the joy of an early menopause, or heading that direction - so needing to adjust to the tiredness, funny symptoms. I am so enjoying the pics of your holiday - it looks such a beautiful place!

Diane said...

Great pictures Mari. It's time to pass the camera off to someone else. I want to see a picture of YOU. Your family trip looks so much more beautiful than our trips to Dallas. Dallas is not beautiful. The only good part is that our kids are there :)

Glad to know you are having such a wonderful time!
Sweet blessings!

Acckkk!! That picture of me is terrible!! See what happens to me in the hot weather!? Not only does it make my face shine and my hair wilt, but apparently it also makes me gain 30 pounds!
