Charleston vacay - 2

I'll pick up where I left off from THIS post, which was the Charleston part UNO.  Now time for part DOS!  
The third day in Charleston, my mom and I started early (before it got stifling hot), and explored the quaint downtown area, beautiful churches, theatres, graveyards, and more. 

We had the most delicious lunch at 82 Queen, and loved sitting outside in the lovely patio area.  
Our food was soooo delicious, I would highly recommend this place :)

That afternoon, we decided to check out the Boone Hall Plantation, where "The Notebook" was filmed.  
We are soooooo glad that we did...it was just gorgeous and it was amazing to see that it still is a working plantantion!  Full of wildlife, acres and acres of farming, and of course the lovely plantation home.  

After Boone Hall, we headed out to Sullivan's Island, and enjoyed walking along the beautiful beach, and soaking up the sun.  

Poe's Tavern (on the island) was for dinner, and we loved it.  It was one of the restaurants that John and I LOVED when we were there in the spring.  So cute, and great food.

Our last day was spent walking around the Reading Terminal Market, and picking up a few last goodies and souvenirs.  We had a tasty brunch at Toast, and then headed out!   
(But not before picking up some famous treats from "Cupcake" for the ride home :)

That's all folks!! Hope you enjoyed the pics!!  :)
