After the Inauguration we decided to spend four days in charming and historic Charleston, SC. The Historic District and Bay Front area are pedestrian friendly. Patriots Point also deserves a visit. The WWII Aircraft Carrier Yorktown is the highlight. They also have a Destroyer, Submarine and Coast Guard Cutter on display. It is a must see if you are a WWII history buff like me.

January 20th. 2009 was our 47th. wedding anniversary and what better way to celebrate than to attend the Presidential Inauguration. We planned our trip and requested tickets to the swearing in ceremony from both our Congressman and Senator. Neither gave us much hope of obtaining tickets due to the high demand (ie. we don't have any pull). We decided to attend anyway. Two days before we left for Washington, our Congressman called and said he was able to get us tickets and we could pick them up in his office in Washington. We were thrilled!
