And so, at 9 pm, at the conclusion of THE SOUNDS OF CHARLESTON, energized beyond the ability to sleep, we prepared the vehicles for travel and headed down the road toward Savannah GA, our next destination and I dedicate this entry to Nikki and her wonderful "southern hospitality" in making our last night in the city so special and to the teacher who talked to his dog on the phone and made us ...
