Blind tigers, RiverDogs and Sand Gnats... oh my!

We met up with Chuck after he played another round of golf, at The Links at Stono Ferry in Hollywood, SC.  Set amidst South Carolina Lowcountry breezes from the Intracoastal Waterway and centuries-old live oaks, Stono Ferry is a refuge from society's hustle.  We dined on sandwedges at the Stono Ferry Grill.

An afternoon drink on the historic patio of The Blind Tiger Pub was a necessity.  I did say it was "historic"! 
A bar has operated at this location since 1803. The name "Blind Tiger" comes from the days before Prohibition and speakeasies when Charlestonians opened up illegal "parlors of consumption."

Keeping with an animal theme, hot dogs were consumed at 'The Joe', Charleston's home for their Class A minor league baseball team (NY Yankees)...The RiverDogs.  The stadium is amazing!
From nearly every spot in the facility, fans can get to a rest room or a concession stand within a 45-second walk.  High on our list of necessities!  While the 'Dogs' lost to the Savannah Sand Gnats, the evening was tremendously entertaining and we all thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the night.  Chuck said that the barbecue pork nachos were the best thing he has ever eaten at a ball park! 

One of the most overwhelmingly wonderful components of our visit to Charleston has been Southern hospitality (a phrase used in American English to describe the generalization that residents of the Southern United States are particularly warm and welcoming to visitors to their homes, or to the South in general).  Everyone we have met has been incredibly kind and we are finding that to be our most favorite part of the trip, thus far.
