Charleston, SC Day 1

I got up early today for a nice 4 mile run through Wild Dunes.  Then, after a much needed shower, I got ready to go out with Bri and Zack.  We headed into Charleston to meet up with Bri's friend, Genevieve from school.  She lives just outside of Charleston and was ready to show us the sights.  But first, check out the view from our room!

First we did lunch at Hominy Grill.  This was yet another restaurant on that Food Network On the Road app and I was excited to see what it was all about.  After an appetizer of fried green tomatoes, sandwiches all around, and a fantastic dessert of hot fudge brownie sundae and famous chocolate pudding, we were pleased and stuffed.
Roasted Eggplant and Goat Cheese with Tomato Pudding

Pimento Grilled Cheese with Coleslaw

The Turkey Club

The Big Nasty: Fried Chicken and Cheddar Cheese on a
Homemade Biscuit with Grits (my brother's choice!)
Hot Fudge Brownie Sundae

My Favorite: The Chocolate Pudding
Genevieve proceeded to take us into Charleston where we checked out the University of Charleston campus, King Street Shopping, the King Street Market, and then some of the famous old houses.  There were tons of sights to see and it was a lovely afternoon...not to mention a great way to walk off some of that lunch!

After our tour, it was time to meet back up with the parents.  We went back to our room and rested for a bit.  After all that waking and a short nap, I was actually hungry again and it was time for dinner!
We went to dinner at Poe's Tavern.  This is like The Edgar Allen Poe's Tavern.  The place is known for its great burgers, chicken sandwiches, and fish tacos.  We were all quite pleased with our meal!  Bri even found a good veggie burger!  I ended up getting the swordfish tacos, which were fantastic!  In fact, the food was so great, I didn't have time to take pictures before everyone scarfed the food down!  After dinner, we had a little family game night.  Scattegories was our game of choice.  My mom and I were a team against the boys.  We ended up tying so we are going to have to have a rematch at some point!  Until tomorrow...
