home again, home again

We got back this morning from attending the wedding of Elaine’s youngest niece in Charleston, SC on Sunday. It was a fun trip, and even though we didn’t get to spend much time in Charleston proper I think it may be the most beautiful city I’ve seen. Not that that’s saying much; my experience with cities is pretty limited. Alice and John had a lovely wedding at Trinity Methodist Church and we wish them all the best in their new life together. Elaine found us a great condo in the aptly named Mount Pleasant, where we had our first experience shopping at the Piggly Wiggly. The only downside was the grueling drive from NEPA: fourteen hours down and even more back, thanks to my navigational ineptitude which put us in downtown Washington at rush hour yesterday. Surprisingly, Elaine is still speaking to me…

Now it’s back to a lot of waiting calligraphy, book repair, and getting ready for upcoming classes.

  1. :-) Now you know why I was so happy to have GPS in my rental car….

    Downtown DC isn’t as bad as it used to be — you could have ended up in a worse ‘hood.

    True. I don’t usually mind driving in DC, but after eight hours in the car with five to go: gah.

    Starting to think the GPS thing might be a good idea…
