That’s what we were for the past few days. Lee and I were tour guides with dogs and as long as I live in Charleston – I’ll never do it any other way…
Our house guests were here for the very first time. Naturally we wanted to show them our beautiful city. Since this trip centered around their son, Harley and Jaxson, we never gave it a second thought to leave the Doodle Bros at home. #nodoodleway
RAINBOW ROW –
Rainbow Row is the name for a series of thirteen colorful historic houses in Charleston, South Carolina. It represents the longest cluster of Georgian row houses in the United States. Wikipedia
Although not connected to the row of colorful homes.This one sits down the street – across from Battery Park and is my all time favorite #Iwanttoringtheirbell...
THE ANGEL OAK TREE –
The fairy-talesque Angel Oak tree in Charleston, SC is thought to be one of the oldest living organisms east of the Mississippi River. It stands 65 feet (20m or 6 stories) tall, is 28 ft (8.5 m) in circumference, and an area of 17,000 square feet is shaded by it’s tentacular crown. The largest branch reaches 187 feet long. Its branches reach in all directions with some driving underground and then growing back up above the surface. atlasobscura
The name comes from the Angel estate, owned by couple Justus Angel and Martha Waight Angel. However, local legends say the ghosts of former slaves appear as angels around the tree. atlasobscura
Although pets are not allowed near the Angel Tree, they are permitted in the picnic area. Harley found shade and a doodle*licious breeze in a swing chair on the store porch…
PATRIOTS POINT (HOME OF THE USS YORKTOWN)
Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum is located in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, at the mouth of the Cooper River on the Charleston Harbor. Wikipedia
While the park is “pet friendly” the USS Yorktown tours are strictly for two legged tourists.
But please do not cry for us Argentina. Everyone had a grand time.
Aboard the aircraft carrier there was much history to learn. Look at Doodle Dad (caught on camera) pretending to star in one of those old world war movies…
Back on land – the Boys and I opened up a blanket, facing the edge of Charleston Harbor, which offers spectacular views of the city. We had treats, water, potato chips and lemonade. We were all set…
We view our pets as family. It’s nice to live in a city that feels the same way.
I acknowledge pets cannot go EVERYWHERE with you, but I appreciate how Charleston makes alternative accommodations when necessary. #bestcityforpets
