Wow what a weekend we had. It started with a great day at the Market on Saturday. The crowd was larger than usual because it was the first day of Spoleto. It is a festival that takes place every year here in Charleston and the town is full of tourists that came for the event. There are events all over town and a lot of them take place in and around Marion Square. There were bands,pony rides and tons of extra food and art vendors. There was a crazy band playing in the square and after playing for several hours they lead a parade through the streets of Charleston. Here are some photos I took as they were leaving the market area. I would have taken more but business was booming and I had to stay close to my booth.
Sunday was great as well. We stayed close to home and just relaxed. Relaxing is something that my wife and I seldom do so it was a nice change. Today was Memorial Day. We started out by watching some memorial services around the country that were being shown on TV. After that, we relaxed again. As my son said; What's up with that? The boys aren't used to seeing their parents take it easy. But we did. I cooked BBQ chicken with fresh green beans, mushrooms and onions out of my garden. For desert we had strawberry shortcake. We had lunch outside on the deck and while we were eating, we had this little visitor.
I hope everyone had an equally great weekend and I hope you stopped to remember our service men and woman who sacrificed so we can live like we do.
Have a great day,
