Memorial Day Weekend

Over Memorial Day weekend the Thompson Clan headed to Charleston, South Carolina for a long weekend and very appropriately to a city very rich in history.   Every Memorial Day weekend we try to get everyone together somewhere new to visit and spend time together.  In the past we’ve gone to Niagara Falls, Savannah, and Orlando.   

On Memorial day we visited the Fort Sumter National Monument which you have to take a boat to and as you approach it the fort seems surprisingly small.  We took a horse drawn carriage tour of the city where we learned a little bit more about the city and about a very unique feature of most of the houses…the piazza.  A piazza is a covered, usually screened in, porch that is attached to the side of a home that is used for more living and entertaining space.  Charleston was a great town and a fun place to spend a weekend with lots of stuff to do.  Thanks to the Thompson Clan for another great Memorial Day trip! 

Here are a few of the pictures and to see more click on my picasa web link to the left under photography.
