The two RV Gypsies enjoyed
the downtown waterfront in
Charleston, South Carolina
June 2, 2017

The two RV Gypsies parked their car at the Charleston Welcome Center which costs $1 for each half hour, but the first half hour is free. Then they got on the free shuttle bus to go to the downtown waterfront area, a nautical theme area with a pier, cafe, gift shop, scenic harbor views, and water fountains for kids to play in.

The only reason Karen Duquette did not get wet in the water fountain like she usually does, was because they had to return to their car on the shuttle bus and she could not get on the shuttle bus in wet clothing.

The two RV Gypsies took a stroll on the 1,250-foot long pier and relaxed a while on a bench swing and enjoyed the view. Lee spotted a restaurant across the way and decided they should go have a small lunch there. (So they walked to the Fleet Landing Restaurant and Bar. Those photos can be reached from the SC menu link at the bottom of this page.)

After eating, the two RV Gypsies returned to the downtown waterfront and walked the area. They liked the "pineapple" water fountain, which had lots of children playing in it. Karen cropped the kids out of the photo because she did not want to post photos of all those children that she did not know.

Lee Duquette just could not resist the giant ice cream cone.

Then the two RV Gypsies got on the shuttle bus and returned to their car at the visitor center in downtown Charleston. But as they exited the shuttle bus, Lee noticed a nearby art fair and a big statue, so they decided to take a look.

Besides the Chicken Thing truck, an artist had paintings on display for sale of the Chicken Thing. Karen Duquette did not think it proper to photograph the paintings, but did take a picture of the Chicken Thing explanation.

Then the two RV Gypsies drove their car to Charleston Harbor Marina at 24 Patriots Point Road, Mount Pleasant, SC
