Kentucky Rain

Standard

Ever heard aloud sound echo off something? Anything loud echoes here fireworks, gun shots, and thunder. Last night and early this morning we have had a huge thunderstorm. The kind with thunder that you can feel in your chest and rattle your house. With thick sheets of rain that pound down onto your roof and cause the fear of flood to rise in the back of your mind.

I don’t known of you have ever been in any of the southern states when it rains but it’s awful! Here in Eastern Kentucky it gets muggy and humid and all around sticky and yucky! But you know it’s coming it starts getting humid the day before it rains…well more humid. We do not have dry heat, and its really rare if we do, here it’s always muggy in the summer! I didn’t even know what dry heat really felt like until I went to Texas!
It’s awful but you get used to it. My hair however no matter how much hair spray or gel is put in there it gets wavy and frizzy.

This is especially not good for our yard we have what I call grave yard ground it sinks when you walk on it. When it rains it stays wet for almost a week!!

On Edisto Beach

Whaley’s

Home of the Ugly Fish

This place is one of the best costal dives in South Carolina having been honored in Coastal Living and trust me it looks like a dive! It is housed in a old gas station and the gas pumps are still outside but don’t let the appearance fool you it was some of the best  food! From shrimp burges to chicken parmesan and home made chips (See above) it was a little something for everyone. We ate there two or three times while on the island!

 

t-shirts are only during the seasonal time though ={

Charleston, SC 

 

Aw Shucks

Sorry no pictures but this is a sea food restaurant with some awesome food what I really remember about this place was there mashed potatoes with crawfish  mixed it is was awesome! I think I wasn’t very adventurous this trip and got steak.

But they have awesome shirts!

Any Gas Station/ Food Mart

 

Hymn’s Sea Food Restaurant

 

I was adventurous here and I got flounder. Now I thought I was getting a filet not the entire fish! Thankfully the head was cut off because I could not have handled that at all! But it was really good! It is also important to ask for your free boiled peanuts! Also if you have walked around Charleston at all you should have found a coupon for this place for a free dip! Use it! The dip and hushpuppies are amazing together!!

 

Also t-shirts are awesome!
