Thanks to Trixie – who behaved wonderfully – we had the front seats, and a good view of everything. Once the tour was over, Pops took Trixie to the car to fetch her carriage so we could go into the marketplace – Mom started there first, and had such a good time we may have to return. In any case, we saw plenty of unique arts & crafts, including sweetgrass baskets, a unique art form here. We got one of course.
Once Mum exhausted herself in the market, we drove to the Battery and Pops got out to take some photos – once it was a battery of guns to defend the city, but now it is a park, dominated by live oak trees, and the relics of long obsolete canons. A memorial to Confederates who defended Sumter is there – reminding any Southerner about their lost cause for all eternity.
