And the rain came down…and came down…and came down! What to do in Charleston in the rain, I mean, I guess we could explore the lovely gardens and historical houses and get really, really wet…but I’m not a fan of sitting in wet clothes. Inside it must be and, thankfully, Charleston had some things to offer.
Our first stop was the aquarium. I had some reservations about crowds and keeping a little space apart but I was surprised at how well everything was organized. Make sure the pre-buy your ticket and go early.
The highlights were the beautiful, huge turtles that swim so serenely in their large enclosures. It was actually pretty mesmerizing to watch them. The Princess enjoy the fish darting around and the educational area in the turtle hospital. I learned much about turtles myself.
When we left the aquarium it was raining even harder. Thank goodness we had umbrellas as we waited for the free city shuttle. We headed to King Street for our next adventure…perfume making! We actually saw this place a few days before and my science loving Princess thought it might be a fun thing to do. I thought it would be fun as well, so we spent a delightful hour crafting our signature scent. The process was so well laid out that we never felt overwhelmed. What a special memory we made at Tijon perfume lab. I highly recommend it.
We were sad to bid Charleston behind but we have so many lovely memories to cherish. We can’t wait to visit again.
