Yes, we went to Charleston today, but, no, we do not have pictures. Our hu-dad did remember his camera, but he forgot to check the batteries and when we got out of the car, he discovered that he had no power to the camera and could not take pictures.
That is really bad, because you missed that we parked in front of this beautiful old house in front of White Point Gardens (interestingly, normally called Battery Park, despite the fact that you can not buy camera batteries there – we know). This beautiful old house was being renovated and had lots of construction people inside it. At least, they were inside until we parked in front and Cheoah started screaming her head off that she wanted out of the car and out of the car RIGHT NOW. At that point, all of the construction people came out and watched as The Herd was unloaded from the Jeep. Tourists walking through White Point Gardens also congregated, watched and took pictures (because they had working batteries). The hu-dad was most thankful that Cheoah helped gather an audience for the ritual Jeep unloading of Sibes.
And further, no camera is bad because we met Linda and David – hu-parents to Kody and Nia – who took time off from work just to come meet us. We showed the proper respect to them by having Rusty plant a muddy paw on Linda’s cheek and Queen Natasha the Evil climb on David’s back, but there are no pictures of that because we did not have batteries for the camera. And the hu-dad was horrified and would not have taken pictures anyway, but that is such a minor detail. We did get a great email from Linda who said, “Tell the Queen that she didn’t have to stand on David’s back he already knew he was beneath her.” QNTE is happy that another human subject recognizes her superiority.
The hu-dad, however, did stop for camera batteries on the way back to our RV, so we have pictures of the sun setting as we walked on the beach. You will have to imagine the construction workers watching our unloading ceremony and Linda and David being introduced to the antics of The Herd, but we can actually show you the sunset. Hope you enjoy:
P.S. – We have received many emails from readers, so in response – Yes, rains are supposed to be torrential on Wednesday here (predicting 7 to 11 inches (18-28 cms) of rain in the next 36 hours) and, to add to the fun, tropical depression number 16 has formed and is aimed for this general area. Can we pick the perfect time and location for a vacation or what?
