Day 1 Atlantic Coast Tour- Friday November 2nd - Charleston, SC

Arrived in Charleston, SC (about a four hour drive) staying at James Island County RVPark in Charleston, SC. A very nice 700 acre park used by residents of the city for ball games, boating and family get togethers.  84 degrees Sunny and little wind.

First stop, downtown Charleston to see waterfront and layout of the city.
In Charleston, what I would call a porch is called a Piazza, looks like a porch to me.

Next stop was the Magnolia Plantation with it's Natural landscape and bridges.

Beautiful waterscapes with all of natures beauty.. including ........
Alligator, 15 foot long, sunning itself along the path we walk on. We were six feet away from him.
Next we went downtown to the French Quarters district of Charleston to have a nice lunch.
We walked on the Battery along Ashley River overlooking Fort Sumter in the distance.
Many battles have been fought here from Revolutionary War to Civil War and even German submarines have been seen here during WWII in the 1940's.
 In Battery Park, Charleston, overlooking Fort Sumter, a statue to Confederate Defenders
William Moultrie was a general in Civil War and later 35th governor of South Carolina.

Three days in Charleston and I drove South to Kissimmee, Florida for the Roadtrek Rally.
