After a day or so in Myrtle Beach we took a weekend road trip to see Charleston. The part of the city you see first when getting off the highway is not inspiring (looked, to me, like parts of Detroit actually), but we stayed and walked around in the historic area on the peninsula which is filled with nicely kept fancy old homes.

|I know, fancy, right? Charleston is famous for it's ornate iron work - railings, gates, etc.|
While it was sunny in Charleston, the weather had turned cooler. The only jacket I bought was a trench coat, along with my fleece and so, for strolling around outside, looking at all the nice homes, I pretty much resorted to layering like a crazy person (and then, of course, goofing around for the camera). My jacket in the photo below looks like it's bulging because I was rocking five or six layers on my torso (it was in the mid-30s to low 40s that day).
