life list: visit every state (south carolina)

I have multiple posts in my head but don't really have time for them all right now.  Things have been very busy with work lately.  Lots of traveling out of state (which I haven't had in awhile).  This week I flew out to Charleston on Monday.  I was able to explore their downtown a little bit and buy a few things from local craftsmen.  I also ate at Magnolia, recommended by multiple people.  It was quite good but I was so tired I just got it to go.
