King St. walking

King St., Charleston, S.C.

Waawaaawaa....I'm hot, you're hot, we're all too hot. I look out the window to see lush green grass and blossoming crepe myrtles trees and think, "oh, it looks so lovely, I wish I could be out in it" but it's simply too darned hot. It's 9:30 p.m. and I just got back from my walk. Luckily there are still lots of sweaty tourists on the streets. I had to dodge them but it felt safe to be out marching.

Two Boroughs Larder should be opening just around the corner from me soon. More tasty treats coming to me.

I won a kayak rental from Coastal Expeditions on Facebook the other day so my friend Leah and I are going out from their Shem Creek location on Sunday at 9 a.m. I'm new to it and Leah has never done it so we should be quite a team! Join us if you like.

Random photos from King St. walks for you today. Stay cool kids!http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif

Think of the heat as melting and rearranging your brain cells for new versions of creativity!
(I want to know what's in window on the right--is that Death with a scythe?)

Will do brattcat!

Anon - Good question. I added the higher resolution link under the photo so you can check it out but I may have to walk back and take a look. It appears to be an image of a hand clasped around something.

I was in Charleston in April on a biking trip and while there spent a morning kayaking on Shem Creek. Might have been the same place. We went out to a place where penguins nest, but by now they have probably flown back to wherever they spend the summer. Sorry about the heat. We had it here two weeks ago, but now it is back to normal.

I like the way that restaurant is PEKING out from behind that tree... (heh)

I parked around the corner on my way to check out HoM, the place on upper King with ping-pong tables. When I passed back by the fire station, I was taking a picture when a truck returned, flashing red lights and slowly backed into its bay.Nice bonus!

Jack - I'm sure that is where I am going. Tomorrow!

Marcheline, I did too :)

Chuck - I heard about the ping pong place! So many new places popping up.
