Friday we got up and decided to head into Charleston for some exploring. We drove downtown to look for the city market that everyone said we should go see. The problem was trying to find a parking spot. We ended up parking on King Street. Our next problem was trying to find quarters to feed the parking meter. The meter only lets you stay 1 hour and then you have to feed it again. We headed down to the market and there was plenty to see. We got some yummy cookies. Jeff spotted a Firehouse Sub Shop while looking for quarters and has always wanted to try it out, so we had lunch there. Jeff just happened to have on his Keokuk Fire shirt so when he was paying the cashier said so you're a fireman? Jeff said yes,and he said you get a free drink. Well isn't that nice. After lunch we headed back to the HOW, but on our way Jeff saw a sign....shrimp for sale, so he stopped and got a pound. Wow wee they were the biggest shrimp we ever saw. When we got back we took the dogs for a walk.
Saturday had to start the day singing Happy Birthday to our youngest son Justin.(they love that) then we headed back into town. Today we are going to Patriots Point. First we headed out to the USS Yorktown CV-10, then the submarine USS Clamagore. We walked onto that aircraft carrier and couldn't believe the size. We did a couple walking tours and still couldn't believe the size. After we had seen enough we stopped for a snack and after we headed back out to the sub... This looked pretty big til we got in it. Yikes no way could I have lived in there. People ask how we can live in a 5th wheel, after touring that sub our 5th wheel is very spacious, extra large. We headed back home to make a great supper. Jeff was gonna try his shrimp and we had fresh green beans, twice baked potatoes and red lobster biscuits. It was so good. Jeff's shrimp were awesome. He did stop and got more. I did the laundry before getting ready to move down the road. Tomorrow Skidaway State Park.
