Before our departure from our babymoon, we had only a few more things to cross off our to-do list. We hit Patriot Point on our way to Folly Beach and although we didn't have time to take the tour we were able to see the USS Yorktown, and replicas of a Cold War submarine and Vietnam Support Base. We then headed to the expansive and very windy Folly Beach where we surveyed the pier and took the walk to the historic Morris Island Lighthouse. In fact, it was so gusty I had to change outfits in the car in order to maintain any decency while sightseeing!
The best part of our outing was lunch at Lost Dog Café. We had the most enjoyable eating experience all weekend here because of the charming character. The service made you feel like you had been a regular for years and the furnishings made you smile, especially if you're a dog person like G and I are. There were pictures of pups everywhere surrounded by quotes like, “Happiness is being one of the gang.” The diverse menu options was just the cherry on top of the cake. The most interesting quote posted there said, “Dogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know jealousy or evil or discontent. To sit with a dog on a beach on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden where doing nothing was not boring, it was peace.” Ah dog lovers after my own heart.
Hopefully my Charleston chronicles the last several posts (1,2,3, 4, & 5) has provided a vibrant picture of the remarkable place and memories we made. I can't wait until our next adventure.
