7 years of love

The beautiful wife and I celebrated 7 years of marriage with a wonderful trip to Charleston SC. The first day was spent with some old friends of ours from Greenville with an amazing breakfast made by their son and then we all went for a boat ride around Charleston harbour in their boat. I was stationed there for 4 years in the Coast Guard and loved every second of it. The boat ride brought so many memories back while we all enjoyed an absolutely beautiful day on the water. We enjoyed sitting on the beach with me in the shade relaxing all of our worries away. Then my cell phone rings and our a/c people call and say it is going to cost $800 dollars to tear apart our house to find a small leak in the a/c system. This really pissed my beautiful wife and me off and we told them to not touch anything else and get the hell out of their. My father-in-law was there and got it back up running while mother-in-law made an appointment with their a/c company. As of right now, nothing is knowingly wrong with the a/c system but we are keeping a very close eye on it.

The bed & breakfast we stayed was awesome as it was right on the battery and 2 of the rooms are haunted. We were in the room between the 2 haunted rooms and didn't see anything. We ate at some amazing restaurant with some of the best meals I have ever had. The city has improved on several things since I lived there which was some 18 years ago. We enjoyed all that the city had to offer with a good ghost tour of the city one late night, long walks around the city, and afternoons chillin on the great beaches. I was able to go for a 4 mile run one morning through the city with several greetings from the local aquatic wildlife there. As I ran along the harbour, several dolphins were playing in the water some 100 feet from me, absolutely awesome.
I'll post more later. Love and hug your loved ones every chance you get!

Happy Anniversary!!! Isn't Charleston amazing? I lived down there for 2 yrs, and don't visit often, but we're going next weekend for a small vacation. I love going for a run along the battery... fun, fun.
